FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific, has added the Life Whisperer Genetics module to its Life Whisperer software package (launched in 2021), enabling non-invasive evaluation of embryo genetic integrity during in vitro fertilization (IVF). Life Whisperer Genetics used in conjunction with Life Whisperer Viability uniquely aids in the clinical selection of blastocysts that may have a greater likelihood of being euploid and resulting in pregnancy using a single platform.
Dr Michelle Perugini, CEO and co-founder at Presagen, said: “The Life Whisperer platform was developed with a network of IVF clinics around the world to provide a single suite of AI-based technologies for a non-invasive, objective option along with a seamless workflow solution to aid clinicians in the IVF process.”
The Life Whisperer platform’s artificial intelligence-based approach analyzes day 5 blastocysts’ morphological features that correlate with increased likelihood of clinical pregnancy to produce a confidence score from 0 to 10 across both Life Whisperer Viability and Life Whisperer Genetics modules. Research has shown Life Whisperer Viability may improve selection of viable embryos by up to 25% vs. embryologist assessment alone. In a simulated cohort study, Life Whisperer Genetics identified the top-ranked embryo as euploid in 82.4% of cohorts. By using the non-invasive single platform, the embryologist or clinician has an objective assessment and consistent grading aid to clinical decision-making and helping patients build families.
The Life Whisper platform is cloud-based and compatible with standard optical microscope and image-capture software to streamline integration into existing IVF workflows. The software uses image drag and drop functionality to generate results quickly, harnessing its objective Life Whisperer Viability and Life Whisperer Genetics grading system to generate patient-centric reports. This reporting feature provides patients with a firsthand look into the decision-making process, increasing transparency and patient knowledge, and opening further discussions between patient and clinician in the IVF process.
Life Whisperer is available from FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific, sole worldwide distributor, in select regions. Life Whisperer is not authorized for sale in the U.S.A.
