About Unisense FertiliTech A/S (UF)
Unisense FertiliTech A/S was founded in 2003 to develop technology to improve human embryo assessment in assisted reproduction. Initial research using bovine models led the way to collaborations with embryologists in Europe and North America to evaluate our technology for use with human embryos. Towards this end, an instrument incorporating a fully stable incubation environment with integrated time-lapse image acquisition was developed.
Unisense FertiliTech A/S manufactures and sells state-of-the-art instrumentation notably the EmbryoScope® Time-lapse system, the EmbryoViewer® Workstation (Software) and related products, which are EU approved and FDA cleared for clinical use in IVF laboratories. Unisense FertiliTech A/S conforms to the requirements in DS/EN ISO 13485:2012 for production, installation and servicing of IVF incubators and related accessories
The company is involved in numerous international collaborations, and strives to develop embryo assessment algorithms to improve embryo selection and workflow in the assisted reproduction laboratory. Our goal is to promote knowledge building through extensive documentation and retrospective analysis. We are dedicated to providing technology to improve IVF treatment through quantification of embryo development patterns.
