RADfertility’s laboratory has welcomed the addition of two new EmbryoScope+ time-lapse incubators, the latest state-of-the-art technology that enhances IVF success for our patients. The EmbryoScope+ is a combination incubator, time-lapse camera and microscope that helps our embryologists select the embryo for transfer with the highest chance of resulting in a successful pregnancy during the IVF process. The original EmbryoScope made its debut at RADfertility in 2013 and this new model provides even more insight into an embryo’s development.
This novel technology creates a stable culture environment for the embryos and continuous observation. A photo of the embryo is taken every 10 minutes which creates a video that shows its growth during its time in the incubator. Without time-lapse, embryos must be taken out of the incubator to be assessed, exposing them to unnecessary stress and fluctuations.
Stacy Carney – Director of Laboratory Services
“We are thrilled to go to the next level and offer the cutting-edge technology of Embryoscope+ to our patients. It helps optimize the embryo selection process and provides our laboratory team with the full picture of an embryo’s development rather than just snapshots at key points.”
EmbryoScope+ time-lapse technology, when used in combination with preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidies (PGT-A), is a powerful tool in the decision-making process. This is why our IVF For ME (Maximal Efficiency) program now includes PGT-A and the use of EmbryoScope+ to monitor embryo development from its first cells.
Ronald Feinberg, MD, PhD – Medical Director of IVF Programs
“This technology strongly complements our commitment to single embryo transfer at the blastocyst stage. At RADfertility, we have consistently maintained one of the highest SET rates in the country because it is the safest and most effective way to attain a healthy pregnancy through IVF. We are constantly searching for ways to improve pregnancy success rates while maintaining healthy outcomes for our patients.”
Additionally, EmbryoScope+ utilizes software that has gathered information from thousands of IVF cycles performed worldwide. This creates an artificial intelligence algorithm from the morphokinetic data that will soon identify development patterns most likely to yield a successful result for our patients, which is our ultimate goal.

From fun giveaways to updates on state-of-the-art technology we are using to improve patient success, our blog puts the news in perspective for our patients.
"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."
"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."
"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."
"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"
"The staff and doctors are amazing. It will feel like home every time you walk in the door. They gifted us with our miracle baby and we couldn’t be happier. I will always recommend RADfertility above all others!"
"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options. I am so fortunate and appreciative of the care that I received at RADfertility. They go above and beyond."
"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."
"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
