Baibys

AI and robotics-based autonomous sperm selection for IVF

BAIBYS’ autonomous sperm selection solution for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is designed to analyze living sperm cells in real-time using Machine Vision (MV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

BAIBYS’ system evaluates the cells according to morphological criteria, which can only be identified using high magnification.

The system recognizes structures in motion in order to evaluate the quality of living sperm cells according to previously established criteria using state-of-the-art AI algorithms.

It then autonomously selects and collects the sperm with the highest fertilization potential to microinject into the egg in IVF procedures.

Ferty U

«SERVICE FOR OVARIAN RESPONSE PREDICTION IN IVF INFERTILITY TREATMENT» is software for doctors that works discretely and as integration with other software. The problems we cope with are as follows: insufficient predictability of ovarian response and related problems such as risks, costs and availability of IVF treatment. Number of retrieved oocytes is the factor that influences treatment success. Our solution is based on ML. Machine learning to identify addition predictive factors, make the prognoses more accurate and faster, and predict the number of matured oocytes as well. Service allows make stimulation results more predictable, avoid the start «fail-cycles», carry out part of the treatment remote, increase the availability of the treatment, and reduce patients and insurance company’s costs. Our next step of development is to manage the therapy outcome through modified factors. All participants of IVF treatment will benefit due to high predictability of ovarian response.
