What is Blastocyst Culture

Blastocyst culture is an advanced laboratory technique used during in vitro fertilization (IVF) to grow embryos for an extended period before implantation. This method involves cultivating embryos in a specialized incubator until they reach the blastocyst stage, which typically occurs around day 5 or day 6 after fertilization

Blastocyst culture offers several advantages over traditional embryo culture methods, including improved embryo selection, higher implantation rates, and reduced risk of multiple pregnancies.


Following egg retrieval in the IVF laboratory, either through conventional IVF or ICSI, embryos undergo a meticulously controlled culture process. This involves sequential development stages:

egg retrival

Egg retrieval marks the beginning of the process.


The pronuclear stage, assessing fertilization success.

embryo progress

Embryos progress to the two to four cell stage.

eight cells stage

Further development to the eight-cell stage.

morale stage

Embryos reach the morula stage.

Culmination in the blastocyst stage, characterized by distinct inner cell mass and trophectoderm layers.

Advantages of Blastocyst Culture

Yes, blastocysts can be frozen for future use. The common freezing technique is Vitrification which provides high survival rates upon thawing.

There is one risk that not all embryos will develop to the blastocyst stage, which could result in fewer embryos available for transfer. 

Generally, the cost ranges from Rs 1.5 lakh to 2 lakhs. It depends on different factors like clinics, the condition of a person and other factors.

After fertilization in the laboratory, embryos are cultured for several days until they reach the blastocyst stage. A healthy blastocyst is then selected and transferred into the uterus using a thin catheter.

Factors such as the woman’s age, embryo quality, and previous IVF outcomes play a role in determining the best approach.

Blastocysts are more developed and have a higher chance of successful implantation compared to three-day-old embryos. By waiting until the blastocyst stage, the chances of pregnancy are increased.
