Dear Ms. or Mr.,

I am a business student from Aarhus University in Denmark. Currently, I am working on my master thesis. One of my research objectives is to explore the market for the use of time-lapse technology in IVF procedures in fertility clinics. I want to explore why some fertility clinics use time-lapse while others do not. Therefore, it is important to gather information from clinics with and without a time-lapse system.

This survey is targeted to personnel involved in the treatment of patients in an IVF procedure. The only criterion is that the respondent must have some level of influence on the decision-making regarding purchase of IVF equipment. Therefore, typical respondents are expected to be doctors/physicians, lab directors, embryologists, and similar positions involved in the procurement of equipment for the lab.

The survey can be completed in less than 10 minutes.

The survey is anonymized, but I would like to express my gratitude for your time by issuing a lottery of an iPad Air. Please remember to type in your e-mail address at the end of the questionnaire if you wish to participate in the lottery.

Please note that I have no financial affiliation with any of the companies providing time-lapse solutions. FertiliTech A/S has supported my studies by granting me access to some of their employees and consultants for me to develop an understanding of the use of time-lapse technology in fertility clinics. They only host my studies, and do not intervene in the making of my dissertation.

Please also remember that I am investigating beliefs and perceptions; NOT scientific facts.

You can access the survey from the link below:

Your contribution will be highly valued.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Kind regards

Hello Haliltokay,

You may have more succes reaching out to individual clinics.

By and large the members of this community are women and men who are trying to build a family through assisted reproduction techniques ("ART"). In other words, the patients.

My guess would be costs and proven efficacy would be a barrier to entry, but that is a guess on my part.

All the best to you.
