Polarized light microscopy-detectable structures of human oocytes and embryos are related to the likelihood of conception in IVF
Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, 08/21/2012
Molinari E et al. – The area of the IL–ZP of the human oocytes may represent a marker of oocyte competence, as oocytes with a low IL–ZP area are more frequently obtained in conception cycles. When measured in embryos, a low IL–ZP area identifies embryos with a high chance of implantation.
