4-cell embryo pictures from IVF - granular appearance of cells

Granular 4-cell embryo from IVF
This 4-cell embryo is from a 40 year-old woman
The cells are quite granular in appearance
We prefer that embryos are not granular - but cause and significance is unknown
Some fragmentation is seen in the 1 to 3 o'clock area

This is a normal appearing (not granular) 4-cell embryo for comparison
