Embryo Transfer (ET) Catheters Market: Overview
The choice of embryo transfer (ET) catheters occupies a crucial role in the success rate of assisted reproduction of IVF. Several surveys, notably in Australia and the U.K., have assigned high value to ET catheter as an independent variable in assistive reproduction system. A range of catheters both for human and animal use have been developed. Most notable of them in human populations are soft ET catheters and firm ET catheters. Embryo transfer is the final step in IVF procedures and the market has seen the attention toward testing new technologies in affecting primary and secondary measure outcomes of IVF. Primary outcomes in human ET comprise implantation rate, clinical pregnancy rate, and ongoing or take-home baby rate, while secondary outcome measures include avoiding complications and traumatic events. Also the catheter used in human ET during IVF must be bereft of blood, mucus, or retained embryos, and any other contaminants. In addition to humans, they are also used in farm animal production.
Manufacturers in the ET catheters market consider different design and physical parameters to meet the requirements of IVF or assisted reproduction technologies (ART). They are focusing on ease-of-use and non-toxicity as primary considerations while designing the devices.
