He's got 30 uterine replicators & some eggs from  a clinic's discard bin.  Miles has just said that so far there have been 88 live births with 30 more on the way. Now these have been  for all possible problems to begin with, anyone want to speculate on why there hasn't been 90 live births?  What happened to the 2 missing embryos? A new mutation or a new pairing of existing genes that doesn't work, or something else. Whichever, It will always be a process that needs tweaking.\

It could had been something as simple as 2 different replicators needed extra maintenance and missed the first cycle (or the 2nd).
