For the first part of this event, Jim Hotaling, M.D., and Jingtao Guo, Ph.D., will be joined by Michael Eisenberg, M.D., to discuss the recent Fertility and Sterility manuscript, “No evidence of SARS-CoV-2 in semen of males recovering from COVID-19." For the second part of this event, Patrizia Rubino, M.S, Bradford Kolb, M.D., and Tih Tan, M.S., E.L.D, will be joined by Tex VerMilyea, Ph.D., HCLD, to discuss the recent Fertility and Sterility manuscript, “Trophectoderm biopsy protocols can affect clinical outcomes: time to focus on the blastocyst biopsy technique."

Questions and issues addressed during the event include:

  • How can the ART lab limit transmission to patients and staff?
  • What is the rationale for hatching on day 3 prior to biopsy on day 5?
  • Does trophectoderm biopsy technique affect euploid rate?
  • How does trophectoderm biopsy technique affect clinical pregnancy rate?
