Time-lapse webinars

Recorded webinar_making the right choice-1 Recorded webinar_AI in TL-1 Recorded webinar_Latest technologies

In this webinar Dr. Tine Qvistgaard Kajhøj will guide you through the  benefits of streamlined embryo evaluation, how to perform it and how it helps you obtain improved results. 

This live webinar was held in December 2018.

In this webinar, Dr. Mikkel Fly  Kragh will go through how he      and colleagues have worked on integrating artificial intelligence  into time-lapse and more specifically how they have automated blastocyst grading using AI.

This live webinar was held in December 2019.



In this webinar, Prof. David Gardner discusses how the latest new technologies such as time-lapse, AI-based analysis of sequences of embryo development, metabolic profiling and non-invasive genetic testing are now coming together to assist in selecting not only the most viable but also the healthiest embryo for transfer. The culmination of the technologies is a significantly reduced time to a healthy pregnancy.
