A meaningful closure to your IVF journey
Forever Embryo™ DNA Time Capsule - An Alternative to Discarding Embryos
Preserving DNA from abnormal and extra embryos
Whether or not you believe that life begins at conception, the life of each and every one of us has begun at that very moment - the moment when male and female genes fused together to form the unique DNA combination that defines who we are today.
This combination of DNA is so unique that it will never be repeated in the history of human civilization.
Each of your extra embryos has a unique combination of yours and your loved one's DNA and is a blueprint of that embryos uniqueness.

Preserving your embryo’s DNA using a time capsule provides a more meaningful closure to your successful IVF cycle, than discarding your extra embryos as biological waste. Preserving your embryo’s DNA also creates the remote possibility of bringing this embryo back to life in the future when advancing technology makes doing so possible. By treating embryo's with respect, we are giving the highly emotional IVF journey a meaningful closure.
The time capsule comes in two options: without the microscope (above) or with the microscope (below)
The DNA is stained with a special dye that can be seen with the Forever Embryo™ built-in microscope.
Once the DNA is fixed onto a glass plate, it can be brought home and stored at room temperature.
Dignity At Any Time
If you decide that you do not want to keep the glass plate with the DNA, simply of it in a suitably dignified manner.
Forever Embryo™ vs Discarding Embryo
- Treating embryos as waste
- Nothing is left
- Taking no responsibility
Can an embryo be brought
back to life using the saved
Not at this time, but scientific progress suggests that it may be possible in the future.
The science of today has almost all the elements required to make this possible one day. In fact, recent discoveries have proven that as long as the DNA sequence is available, a cell can be reanimated. We believe that in 50-100 years, the technology to revive embryos from DNA will exist. Using CRISPR, it may even be possible to take a donor cell nucleus and replace unique parts of the embryo with its DNA material.
