What is NIMA?
NIMA is an innovative non-invasive metabolic test designed to identify euploid embryos. The combination of mass spectrometry (MASS SPEC) and machine learning for analyzing complex metabolic profiles is a promising approach in reproductive medicine.
Key Points About NIMA
- Non-Invasive: NIMA is non-invasive, which means it doesn’t require invasive procedures to assess embryos.
- Metabolic Analysis: It focuses on metabolic profiling, which can provide valuable information about the health and viability of embryos.
- Accuracy: NIMA has demonstrated a 90% accuracy rate during its initial validation, which suggests it could be a reliable tool for embryo selection.
- Versatility: NIMA can be used either on its own or in combination with other technologies like niPGTA (non-invasive preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy) and artificial intelligence (AI).
If individuals are interested in learning more about the NIMA research project or wish to participate, they should contact your clinic team. This research could potentially have a significant impact on improving the success rates of assisted reproductive techniques.
