Why Us

IVF consists in generating and cultivating embryos for up to 5 days in the lab before transfering it to the patient’s womb. Cultivating cells, and embryos alike, can be challenging.

As a researcher, Alexandra has spent significant time cultivating and imaging tissues and cells, feeling like these images had much more to say that we thought, but lacking the tools to give them a voice.

Realizing that IVF was a key and growing application of cell culture, it became obvious that it was similarly in dire need of tools to optimize decision making, with one key end-goal: increase quality control.
