METHOD VALIDATION
Capsule
Acquisition of accreditation is not a final goal but a starting point. An important item is how to validate relevant timing of zygotes and embryos observation using time lapse or static observation. On the other hand, embryos obtained in IVF laboratories are often discarded for their poor morphological feature and their low potential of implantation. Is it ethically acceptable?
