Metabolomics is a new method of embryo assessment by studying embryo metabolism. Using this method, we can analyze in a rapid and accurate way the metabolism of embryos, and in combination with their morphological characteristics we can have useful information on the viability of each embryo from a patient's cohort. The method is non-invasive and does not harm the embryos, as it entails the analysis of the culture medium that the embryo has developed in.
Metabolomics can increase pregnancy rates and also reduce the rate of multiple pregnancies, as we can reduce the number of transferred embryos.
The principles of the method are pioneering, but the reproducibility of the measurements needs to be improved, following international preliminary studies, in which Eugonia actively participated. For this reason, the method has been temporarily suspended and an upgraded version is awaited.
