Embryo Monitoring

The specialists at Institut Marquès understand well that the initial stage of any fertility treatment can be a highly stressful moment for the patients. That is why they launched a service called Embryomobile that allows patients to watch the development of their embryos live on a smartphone or tablet. So far Embryomobile has been used by thousands of patients. According to the clinic’s survey presented at ESHRE, the experience for patients was extremely moving and helped them reduce anxiety. Now that patients can be directly involved and are able to see their embryos before the transfer, they have a feeling of being of control and it helps minimize the stress.

Music at Institut Marquès

The clinic is a world pioneer in incorporating music in embryo culture. The studies conducted by the clinics have shown that micro vibrations from the music produce movements similar to those that fertilised eggs experience in the mother’s womb. The vibrations help stir the culture medium and that results in a more homogeneous distribution of nutrients in the fertilized egg. The use of music turned out to become a key factor in the increase of Institut Marquès’s success rates which are already among the highest on the globe.
