Vitrolife has entered into transfer and collaboration agreements regarding a technology for assessing embryos with Virtus Health, a leading IVF clinic group based in Australia and Harrison.AI, a technology company specialising in the development of AI software in healthcare applications based in Australia. Using time-lapse videos during in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and before embryo transfer, the technology can predict the likelihood of an embryo to lead to a viable pregnancy. The AI technology will support elective single embryo transfer and is anticipated to shorten the time to pregnancy by helping Fertility & IVF practitioners to rank the most viable embryos for selection and transfer.
The initial purchase price related to the transfer amounted to USD 6 million. In addition to the initial purchase price, additional purchase price of USD 2 million may be paid in relation to product development targets.
Vitrolife is the market leader of time-lapse systems for use in assisted reproduction, providing undisturbed culture and improved selection of embryos. Vitrolife is listed on NASDAQ Stockholm Large Cap list.
