Full description

To evaluate the clinical pregnancy rate (pregnancy defined as fetal heartbeat at 6-8 weeks) with the adjunctive use of the Hera System (Hera System used with traditional morphological grading) with embryos already deemed suitable for transfer compared to trained embryologists using standard morphology criteria alone.

Description:
The embryo selection will be based on standard of care traditional morphology only.
Device: Hera System
Experimental group
Description:
For the Hera, the embryologist will use the consider both the standard morphology grade and the Hera System score on embryos that were already deemed suitable for transfer or freeze based on the standard morphology assessment to determine the most suitable embryo for transfer.
