Fakih IVF first to secure latest IVF technology in the Middle East

Biggest leap forward in IVF technology reaches the UAE

Dubai, UAE; April 15, 2013 – Fakih IVF announced it has secured the EmbryoScope, a groundbreaking technology that gives couples with fertility problems better chances of becoming parents.

The Dubai and Abu Dhabi-based fertility treatment centres are the first in the Middle East to secure the technology that is now considered the next big thing after IVF and ICSI. The EmbryoScope is a new and revolutionary incubator with a built-in camera that takes periodical pictures of the embryos as they grow and has completely changed the way embryos are selected.

With this cutting-edge incubator, it is no longer necessary to take the embryos out of the incubator in order to observe them, keeping them undisturbed at ideal temperature and moisture levels. This causes less stress for the embryo.

Moreover, its automated time-lapse imaging system captures a picture every 20 minutes, allowing embryologists to observe the growth of each embryo in more detail from the moment of fertilization until maturity (approximately 5 days), and enables them to choose the best embryos for transferring to the uterus. In doing so, the chances of a successful pregnancy are greater than what was previously possible.

Dr. Michael Fakih, Medical Director of Fakih IVF says “EmbryoScope is truly revolutionary. We are proud to have this technology which will contribute to the continuous improvements applied in our IVF treatments offered in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Beyond the medical advantages offered by this new technology, it also provides the expectant couple with a recorded film of their future baby's life.”

Without this technology, the embryos are monitored once after fertilization and again on the day of embryo transfer, leaving out important details that can be used to choose the healthiest embryo.

“Now with EmbryoScope, we are supplied with imperative information as we monitor the growth of the embryo from day one, when it is just one cell, to a mature embryo (blastocyst) that has divided into over 100 cells. The complete video of 5 days of recording can be watched in less than 2 minutes,” Dr. Fakih added.

About Fakih IVF:Fakih IVF is one of the leading fertility centers known today. It is directed by Dr. Michael H. Fakih, a pioneer in fertility treatment and who is responsible for over 10,000 IVF deliveries. His continuous efforts in the innovation of new techniques have contributed to better outcomes in IVF procedures performed by various doctors around the world.
