The UK’s Liverpool Women’s National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust is planning to tag embryos electronically to avoid in vitro fertilisation (IVF) errors.

The move comes as part of the hospital’s £5.5m expansion of its reproductive care services, The Guardian reports.

The new system uses radio frequency tags to identify which patient the dish or tube belongs to when eggs, sperm or embryos are put under a microscope, hospital authorities said.
