TMC Fertility pushes the envelope in reproductive medicine

AI advancements but make us an industry leader in being able to select sperm with the greatest likelihood of success , while helping our doctors find the best implantation window that can boost pregnancy success rates .
How does your AI-Optimised Embryo Selection system work and how do its results compare to standard embryo selection ? Our AI-Optimised Embryo Selection process , which incorporates artificial intelligence ( AI ) on top of standard assessments , helps to bring greater accuracy into the embryo grading process . After examining pixel-to-pixel changes from one time-lapse image to the next , data is then scored to reflect the implantation potential of every embryo . Ultimately , it aids in the selection of the most viable embryo for transfer , potentially boosting implantation rates .
