What does an embryologist really look like?
We keep the eggs and embryos in the incubators. They are happier there.
The laminar flow hood and the stereo microscope where we find the eggs at the time of the IVF egg aspiration procedure
The inverted microscope where we do the ICSI and the assisted hatching procedures
A 3 day old embryo containing 8 cells
This is a high quality embryo for transfer back to the woman's uterus
