Blastocyst Culture

Embryo Culture to blastocyst

Monitoring Embryo Growth

The aim of embryo culture is to learn about the embryos and determine which are best and most likely to implant in the womb.

‘Blastocyst culture’ refers to culturing or ‘growing’ embryo from the Day 3 stage to Day 5 or Day 6. A blastocyst is the next stage in development of an embryo and embryos should have reached this stage by Day 5.

Blastocyst culture

By growing embryos for a longer period of time in the lab, we can gain additional information about those embryos. This is particularly helpful when selecting the best embryo for Embryo Transfer.

Not every embryo will reach the blastocyst stage, but those that do have shown they have a greater chance of implanting in the womb.
