In MedITEX IVF, donation is performed by linking patients and cycles. In order to have a donation procedure completed, we need first to set the properties described above for each patient. Secondly, we need to link those patients and their respective cycles.

This task is accomplished by Matcher. An interface that helps you create cycles and link patients.

This button opens Matcher and helps you through the necessary steps. It can have different functionalities depending on how much of the donation process has been completed. For example, if a patient do not have a donation cycle created, Matcher will first of all help you creating it, otherwise it will only link cycles. Therefore, Matcher works as a smart button that verifies the necessary steps to successfully perform a donation.


Cell tracking

After the donation has been completed, we can open the cycle of the recipient/donor and continue cultivation. You can switch between cycles with the buttons from the image below. If a patient has more than one recipient/donor you will be asked to whom you want to switch.



Another easy way of tracking donated cells is by using a special function. Select the oocyte/embryo you wish to track, right-click it and select Cell tracking. The cell you have selected will be shown in the cycle of the recipient/donor.

This feature is only available if the donation was performed from the Graphical Representation.
