Development of quantitative, safe and rapid techniques for assessing embryo quality provides significant advances in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART).
Instead of assessing the embryo quality by the standard morphologic evaluation or genetic screening with biopsy, we apply the phasor-FLIM (Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy) and hyperspectral microscopy to capture...
