What is Laser Assisted Hatching?

It is an IVF technique that makes it easier for the embryo to hatch through it's outer layer (zona pellucida) by creating an opening in it. This in turn increases the chance of embryo implantation into the wall of the uterus.

During this procedure, the embryologist shots a strong light beam (laser) onto the zona pellucida under the microscope for it's thinning at a particular selected area. The shots are continuously given till the outer shell becomes thin and a gap is created at that site on the zona pellucida. The embryo can then come out through this gap for implantation. This process is usually done three days after the IVF/ICSI procedures.  For our IVF experts, it takes only a few seconds without harming the embryos. After this, the embryo is then transferred to the patient's uterus to attach itself to the endometrial lining.

At Akruti IVF Centre, Laser Assisted Hatching is recommended under clinical guidance depending on every patient's circumstances. We promise to carry out this process with utmost ease, safety and gentleness without any harm to the embryos.
