CRi Oosight(TM) Instrument Crucial in IVF Breakthrough Demonstrating a Correlation Between Non-Invasive Egg Metrics and Pregnancy
Date:6/16/2009

WOBURN, Mass., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambridge Research & Instrumentation, Inc. (CRi) announced today that Oosight(TM), a non-invasive optical imaging system manufactured by CRi and widely used by embryologists as an aid in the field of in vitro fertilization (IVF), has been used in a groundbreaking study that investigated ways to select eggs most likely to produce a pregnancy.

Dr. Suha Kilani, senior scientist at IVF Australia in Sydney, led a group which included researchers from the School of Women's & Children's Health at the University of New South Wales. The group determined that while absolute predictive criteria for the selection of the best embryo for single-embryo transfer remain elusive, CRi's Oosight instrument provides a useful, non-invasive means to accurately measure characteristics of the egg to help identify the most viable embryo even before fertilization occurs. The results are the first to show a direct link between egg spindle characteristics and pregnancy.

"Extrapolation of these results would suggest that when a normal spindle is found, the chances of a pregnancy, if a high quality cleavage stage embryo follows, is greater than 65%," commented Dr. Kilani.

"We congratulate Dr. Kilani and her collaborators on the quality of their work. It is a significant step forward in improving methods of non-invasive grading criteria. This study adds to our knowledge of contributing factors to fertility and also validates the importance of good quantitative data as produced with the Oosight system. Such data are imperative if we are to make single-embryo transfer a reality, thereby greatly reducing the risks associated with multiple births," said Cathy Boutin, Product Manager at CRi.

CRi's Oosight systems based upon the company's original LC-PolScope technology can be seen at the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology conference in Amsterdam Ju
