Imaging was started at the compacted morula stage and development followed till the blastocyst stage. Images were captured at 20 minute intervals. The majority of THG signal is generated by lipid droplets, which become fewer and larger over the course of development. Use keyboard arrow keys to navigate frame by frame through the animation.
