Laser Assisted Hatching


Laser Assisted hatching is used to “soften” the shell of the embryo. This helps to increase pregnancy rates by improving implantation rates since embryo hatching is facilitated.

  • Patients who in an earlier IVF cycle have had a low fertilization rate, for example, less than one third of the embryos achieving fertilization.

  • Patients with three or less embryos.

  • Patients who request laser assisted hatching should be fully informed of its use and function
