Laser-assisted hatching is a scientific IVF technique that can make it easier for the embryo to “hatch” or breakthrough its outer layer or “shell” (a membrane also known as the zona pellucida) by creating an opening.
The procedure involves an embryologist sending a brief, strong light beam, under a microscope, to create a gap in the shell through which the embryo can come out. This is usually done three days after fertilisation has occurred during an IVF or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) cycle, which is when the embryo has begun to cleave (divide). It takes only a few seconds and does not harm the embryo. The embryo is then transferred back into the patient’s uterus to attach itself to the lining and continue growing.
Any patient can take advantage of laser-assisted hatching, but those most likely to be best suited are those who: Are above the age of 37 Produce a high level of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) early in their cycle Have had unsuccessful IVF cycles Have a tendency to produce a harder and/or thicker zona pellucida
A laser has been shown to be superior to other forms of assisted hatching (chemical and manual) thanks to several advantages: Minimal handling of the embryo Fast and exact control over drilling of the shell opening It is gentle and safe, with no negative effects on the embryo Wide availability to patients, and offered under clinical guidance depending on your particular circumstances
