J Assist Reprod Genet. 2010 Aug;27(8):437-9. doi: 10.1007/s10815-010-9443-2. Epub 2010 Jun 9.


Standardization of morphological assessment for embryo grading system was developed and is being implemented by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). A recent European consensus conference of embryologists from Europe and America is working toward adopting an embryo classification system modeled similarly to that of SART which, if adopted, would produce a de facto international standard to aid cross border collaboration.
