IVF Metabolomics

Viametrics has been introduced for the first time in Asia at Bloom IVF Centre in Mumbai. This helps assess embryos with respect to their viability and implantation potential.

With the help of Viametrics doctors can now shift from multiple embryo transfer to single embryo transfer, thereby reducing the possibility of multiple births and its related complications.

This method will also be useful for patients with repeated IVF ⁄ ICSI failures IVM (In–vitro Maturation) is a new technique in which ocytes / eggs are retrieved from a patient when they are still at a developing state. One of the most demanding aspects of an IVF cycle is the fact that the patient has to take numerous painful and costly injections.

This can be avoided with IVM, thereby minimizing the cost and the inconvenience caused to the patient. It also almost eliminates the chances of developing serious complications such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) giving the dual advantage of minimizing complications and cost at the same time. This is especially true and relevant in patients suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS, which is found in almost 10–20% in the population.
