How does it work?

Genea embryologist and Geri lab photoThe introduction of Genea-designed Geri® incubators means we are capturing time lapse footage of every single embryo that develops in Genea’s labs.

Each Geri has six individual chambers so your developing embryo will have their own personalised space. Each of those six chambers has its own camera, working continuously to capture every incremental development of your embryo.

Developed by embryologists, Geri is a state of the art incubator, designed to be the optimal environment for developing embryos outside the womb.

So once you’ve had your egg collection and your eggs have fertilised in the Genea lab, the resulting embryos will be placed into Geri and your embryologist will let you know when the photos and videos are ready to be sent to Grow.

We’ve put together a short video to walk you through the functions of Grow. Watch it below to see the Australian first app in use.

Access to photos and videos

Genea Geri Grow days

On Days 1, 3, 5 & 6, of development, you will receive access to photos as well as time lapse footage that will be available 24/7 for you to access. This gives you a wonderful chance to be closer than ever to this important phase and share the experience with loved ones. See Step by Step for more details.

Grow is not intended to replace communications with the lab, your Embryologist or Nurse. You’ll still be getting regular phone calls with information about the development of your embryo. Accessing Grow will simply enhance the experience, giving you a greater connection to your developing embryo.
