Capturing the development of embryos in vitro could be done with the use of time-lapse imaging. A sophisticated incubator including a microscope and a camera takes multiple pictures over time. These pictures are then pasted together creating a movie. In this video an oocyte was placed into culture after ICSI. Over a period of three days the images created a movie showing a fertilized oocyte dividing into a two, four and eight cell embryo.
