In 2006, a Texas company called ViaGen impregnated a mare with a cloned embryo produced from the DNA of Royal Blue Boon, an animal that earned its owner hundreds of thousands of dollars in competition.
The EmbryoScope is helping doctors best determine which embryos offer the best chance at becoming healthy babies, and new research indicates this process could raise live birthrates by 50 percent or more. NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.
EmbryoScope, an incubator that takes high-resolution pictures of an embryo’s development, is allowing doctors to better see which embryos have the best chance at becoming healthy babies. NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.
