Speaker Vu Dinh Chat – Lab manager at Hong Ngoc Hospital BV had 2 reports about “Timelapse system operation principles” and “Evaluation of running NiPGT in reality”. NiPGT is a non-invasive preimplantation genetic test, and instead of taking 1 cell of the embryo for pre-implantation screening, it is now gradually being replaced by taking culture or culture of blastocyst cavity or using both types. This method is applied thanks to the cfDNAs in the culture medium, these cfDNAs are a result of the necrotic process of the cells in the embryos in the cytoplasmic stream and go out into the environment. Detailed procedures for performing the epidemic and studies proving the accuracy of this test are also included in the presentation.
Embryology specialist Mai Cong Minh Tam spoke about “Evaluation of embryo morphology on the Timelapse system”. Timelapse system help doctors get photographic, video datas, result of embryo evaluation from the lab to the consultation room’s computer, from then doctors can give a detailed and clear diagnosis. This technology records images constantly from when life was formed till the development of the embryo.
Within the conference, Biomedic had an introduction about the devices used in obstetrics field and especially in IVF to the attendees. Biomedic with technology solutions for NiPGT, PGT will help develop and build a scientific technology system used in IVF.
Honored to be the gold sponsor for this event, Biomedic wish that IVF Updating conferences in the future will have more innovative discoveries. Biomedic is also honored to partner with Hanoi Society of Assisted Reproduction on upcoming events.
