  In Vitro Fertilization Embryo Quality
Embryo quality as we see it under the microscope in the IVF lab gives us some reasonable ability to predict the chances for pregnancy from an embryo transfer.
The true genetic potential of the embryo to continue development and the quality and receptivity of the uterine lining are really impossible to measure.
Embryo quality, to a great extent, is determined by the quality of the egg from which it started.

  Embryo Information
Plants: In botany, a plant embryo is part of a seed, consisting of precursor tissues for the leaves, stem (see hypocotyl), and root (see radicle), as well as one or more cotyledons.
Animals: The embryo of a vertebrate is defined as the organism between the first division of the zygote (a fertilized ovum) until it becomes a fetus.
An embryo is called a fetus at a more advanced stage of development and up until birth or hatching.

 Embryo adoption - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Embryo adoption is the adoption of human embryos for subsequent in-vitro fertilization.
Since embryos are not considered to be children under the law, they cannot be legally "adopted." Thus, an embryo adoption is legally a transfer of ownership of embryos (ordinarily up to nine embryos are transferred in one adoption because pregnancy may not result with the first attempt).
Embryo adoption differs from ordinary donation of embryos in that a regular adoption agency performs a homestudy and matches the donor and adoptive families as in an open adoption.

At four weeks, the embryo is 3 mm/0.1 in long, with a large bulge for the heart and small pits for the ears.
In humans, the term embryo describes the fertilized egg during its first seven weeks of existence; from the eighth week onwards it is referred to as a fetus.
In animals the embryo exists either within an egg (where it is nourished by food contained in the yolk), or in mammals, in the uterus of the mother.

 Understanding Embryo Donation
Embryo donation can provide the opportunity to assist others who want to conceive by donating available embryos and giving someone else the chance to start or add to their own family.
If the embryos have not been frozen (as occasionally occurs when patients undergoing IVF donate remaining embryos to another couple during their fresh cycle, rather than cryopreserving them), a donor eligibility determination is mandatory.
Depending on the stage the embryos were in when they were frozen (at fertilization, day 3 or day 5), between 50-80% of the frozen embryos typically survive the thawing process and continue dividing.

In its widest definition, the embryo is the young from the moment of fertilization until it has become structurally complete and able to survive as a separate organism.
Embryology, the scientific study of embryonic development, deals with the period from fertilization until the hatching or birth of an animal or the germination of a plant.
In lower animals, which lay their eggs in water, the developing embryo is nourished by yolk, absorbing oxygen from and discharging wastes directly into the water.

is the process of removing an embryo (a fertilized egg) from a broodmare and placing it in a surrogate mare where it develops into a foal.
The Embryo Transfer begins with breeding the donor mare (the mare "donating" the embryo) at Vessels Stallion Farm.
A transferable embryo is between the ages of 6 and 8 days old.

 Embryo Storage and Disposal
As a juridical person, the embryo or child born as a result of in vitro fertilization and in vitro fertilized ovum donation to another couple does not retain its inheritance rights from the in vitro fertilization patients.
Embryos shall not be created using semen or oocytes of client-depositors or directed donors who are blood relatives of the other gamete provider to a degree that their sexual contact would constitute incest under New York State law.
This statute relates to children; authorizes human embryo donations and transfers; requires performance of certain techniques by physicians; prohibits certain activities; requires written consents; specifies certain procedures; requires confidentiality; specifies legal status of certain persons; provides that certain donations and transfers are not trafficking in children; specifies conditions; provides for codification; and declares an emergency.

 Embryo Transfer in Cattle
With embryo transfer an already fertilised egg is being inserted, which eliminates one of the steps of artificial insemination so the conception rate should be 5 - 10% higher than artificial insemination, but a lot depends on the condition of the recipients.
Although it is possible for embryos to be flushed from a cow or heifer at these ages the result obtained from the heifer or cow it may not be worth the effort.
Embryo Transfer is now accepted as the quickest and most cost efficient method of increasing the rate of genetic improvement within a herd.

 Historical Implications for Today’s Embryo Transfer: Day 3 Vs. Day 5 by G. John Garrisi, Ph.D.
A discussion of the optimal day for embryo transfer is, in its essence, a discussion of the IVF laboratory environment, and the ability of human embryos to respond in a "normal" way to the artificially created embryo culture system.
The cells of the embryo (called blastomeres) continue to divide, and on Day 4 the embryo is called a morula; at this stage, the cell number may be difficult to determine because of continued division and a developmental process called compaction.
The embryos are challenged by the conditions present in the blastocyst culture system, and the fittest are able to continue development and become normal blastocysts.

 Embryo Adoption and Donation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
With embryo donation, neither the mother nor the father is genetically related to the couples have a child.
If pregnancy occurs through the use of donor embryos, prenatal genetic testing will be advised depending on the age of the woman who created the donated embryo (rather than the age of the recipient).Other prenatal tests, based on the recipient's age and risk for complications of pregnancy, may be suggested.
Embryo donation or embryo adoption may be used for the same reasons as egg donation.

 Genetics & IVF Institute
Since we know the pre-freeze characteristics of each embryo frozen, and the embryo score is related to the probability of implantation, we can purposely thaw and transfer more embryos when the embryo quality is lower without concern for high multiple gestation rates while maximizing each embryo’s potential for implantation.
Embryo morphology (appearance of the cells / percentage of fragmentation) is one of the most influential factors for embryo survival.
Embryos that are 2, 4 or 8 cells when frozen have about 5-10% greater survival than embryos with an odd number of cells.

At the beginning of the embryonic period, a structure known as the embryonic disc is formed from the inner cells of the fertilized egg.
Louise Brown, the first "test tube baby," was born in July of 1978 with the help of in vitro fertilization, which is performed outside the mother—in a test tube or petri dish—using her eggs and the father's sperm.
This followed previous legislative and executive measures banning federal funding of embryo research, which is seen as controversial because of its possible links to the abortion issue and to the debate over whether the embryo—which contains the entire "genetic program" needed to produce a human being—represents the beginning of human life.

Originally a jazzy space rock group, Embryo was formed in 1969 in Munich, Germany, by former R&B and jazz organist Christian Burchard (vibraphone, hammer dulcimer, percussion, marimba), Edgar Hofmann (saxophone), Luther Meid (bass), Jimmy Jackson (organ), Dieter Serfas (drums, percussion), Wolfgang Paap (drums), Ingo Schmidt (saxophone), and John Kelly (guitar).
By the time of Embryo's Rache (1971), the group was already adding ethnic touches to their music.
Embryo also set up their own record label, Schneeball, with the rock band Checkpoint Charlie during this time.

 Training manual for embryo transfer in cattle
Embryos of various stages are illustrated in Figures 14 to 25.
Embryos should be generally spherical or ovoid, not too light nor too dark in colour (Figure 21B and C illustrates unacceptable extremes), and have uniform cell size.
The proper procedure for classifying embryos is to isolate them, remove debris (which occurs automatically in the process of washing them three times), and then separate them into groups of transferable (or freezable or splittable) and non-transferable (unfertilized or severely degenerate) groups.
