Assisted Hatching is a new lab technique that was developed when fertility experts observed that embryos with a thin egg shell layer had a higher rate of implantation during IVF. In assisted hatching, an embryologist uses micromanipulation under a microscope to create a small hole in the outer egg shell layer (zona pellucida). This is done either by drilling a hole through it or by thinning it, which promotes hatching or implantation of embryos that are unable to escape intact from eggs’ outer covering.
