Biopsy
A fragment of tissue removed for study under the microscope. Endometrial and testicular tissues are often removed for study.
Blastocyst
An embryo developed for five days after fertilization has two different cell types and a central cavity. The surface cells (trophectoderm) will become the placenta, and the inner cell mass will become the fetus. A healthy blastocyst should hatch from the zona pellucida by the end of the sixth day.
