Blastocyst Culture
BLASTOCYST CULTUREA blastocyst is an embryo that consists of more than 100 cells. It is at the blastocyst stage of development (5 days after fertilization) that an embryo would normally move out of the fallopian tube and into the uterus. Once in the uterus, the blastocyst starts to attach to the uterine lining in a process known as implantation. Using newly developed culture media, we are now able to select embryos that will remain healthy in culture in the laboratory to the blastocyst stage prior to transfer. A higher implantation rate has been observed following transfer of blastocysts. Currently our practise is to transfer two embryos at 8 cell stage or 1 embryo at blastocyst stage provided the embryos are of very good quality. The extra embryos are then frozen by vitrification.

We achieved the first pregnancy in India using the technique of Laser Assisted Hatching and Blastocyst Transfer (LAHBT) in ____.
