A Simpler Way to Life
The INVOcell is the first FDA cleared Intravaginal Culture (IVC) device and is a small polystyrene capsule used for egg fertilization and embryo development using vaginal incubation. In this technique, the woman’s body is used as the natural incubator, laboratory incubators are only used to pre-warm media and disposable materials needed for the INVO Procedure. The primary advantage of the INVOcell is in utilizing the women’s vagina as the main source of incubation. Couples participating in this treatment feel more directly involved, and more in control of the destiny of the embryo.
The INVO Procedure is a simpler technique where the patient undergoes natural or mild ovarian stimulation. Once the eggs are retrieved and the sperm are collected and prepared, they are immediately placed inside the INVOcell device with culture media and then inserted into the woman’s vaginal cavity where they will be incubated using the patient’s body as a natural incubator. After several days, the INVOcell device is removed, the embryos are observed, selected and immediately transferred back to her body for further development and implantation.
