In brief: In an embryology lab
The eggs go from the body directly into the IVF lab.
Today, the lab is specially designed for air handling, lighting and temperature to support embryo growth. The embryos are cultured for 3-6 days before transfer into the uterus. Embryos receive a score for implantation potential. Sometimes checked for the number of chromosomes and even time-lapse photography. # transferred based on age&quality
