Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for characterising an embryo is provided, the method comprising determining characteristics of the pattern of movement of the embryo; and comparing the determined characteristics with reference data relating to the expected movement pattern of the subject embryo. The method is of use in the staging of embryos and in analysing an environment to which the embryo has been exposed. A system for characterising an embryo is also provided.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé de caractérisation d'un embryon, le procédé comprenant la détermination des caractéristiques du profil de mouvement de l'embryon; et la comparaison des caractéristiques déterminées à des données de référence concernant le profil de mouvements attendu de l'embryon sujet. Le procédé est utile pour la stadification des embryons et pour l'analyse d'un environnement auquel l'embryon a été exposé. La présente invention concerne en outre un système de caractérisation d'un embryon.
