Embryo glue

During IVF and ICSI fertility treatment a fertilised embryo will be transferred into the women’s uterus. The aim of the treatment is that the embryo will successfully implant itself onto the lining of the uterus where it will grow and develop. However, sometimes the embryo does not implant and the fertility treatment cycle is unsuccessful.

EmbryoGlue is a medium developed to closely resemble the environment in the uterus at the time of implantation. It is not a glue in the common sense, but acts as an adhesive by increasing the chance of implantation of the embryo to the uterus. The embryos are placed in the solution and allowed to soak in it for a fixed duration of time prior to the transfer.
