Advanced Certificate Course in Embryology by Medvarsity
Approximately 1 in 7 people of reproductive age are infertile. Due to the increasing prevalence of infertility worldwide, the rise of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) has grown significantly. Over 5 million ART babies are born every year throughout the world, highlighting the role of embryologists. By 2022 the IVF industry in India is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 28%, i.e., nearly 5425 crores INR.
The general population may not be aware of their role in achieving successful parenthood, but embryologists are key to IVF success rates or any assisted reproductive technology. Developing viable eggs, sperm, and embryos outside the human body requires a deep understanding of the science involved and hands-on experience in clinical techniques and technology to guarantee success. Besides their scientific expertise, embryologists play a crucial role in successfully conceiving babies through advanced assisted reproductive technologies.
They are experts in Clinical Embryology, a branch of biology that deals with developing and fertilizing eggs and developing embryos outside the womb. They assist in creating embryos outside the womb by using eggs and sperm. Physicians specializing in embryology manage and maintain the genetic fabric of embryo creations and monitor the embryos closely during their development. They help identify viable embryos for use in IVF procedures.
It’s essential to understand how IVF works before learning about embryologists. It starts with removing the eggs, retrieving the semen sample, and manually fertilizing the egg in the laboratory by injecting the sperm into the egg. Highly trained embryologists perform the procedure in a highly controlled environment, after which the fertilized embryo is transferred into the uterus.
Many couples are now seeking IVF when they can’t conceive naturally, indicating that the demand for assisted reproductive technology is increasing. This also means there will be a greater need for embryologists. With a high demand for embryologists, the IVF industry will likely soon require advanced knowledge in the application of emerging and future-ready assisted reproductive technologies.
