The Potential Impact on the IVF Culture System and on IVF Outcomes

In vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment outcomes have continued to improve with the implementation of progressive techniques including the introduction of sequential culture media, blastocyst culture, assisted hatching and pre-implantation screening;  however, despite overcoming the barriers to conception, and the precise control over so many pre and post conception aspects, the  global IVF success rates remain reasonably static (Beck et al., 2010, Das et al., 2009, Gardner and Lane, 1997, Geary, 2006,  Handyside et al., 1992, Munne et al., 1993, Palermo et al., 1992).
