IVF is such a complicated treatment, which involves not only clinical expertise, but sophisticated IVF lab services as well. Because of the many biological variables involved in IVF treatment, the success rate amongst IVF clinics varies widely. In fact, the success rates in the best clinic can be up to four times as high as the worst. The experience and the expertise of the IVF doctor make a world of a difference. The success of ivf treatment and the clinic is jointly associated with the well managed and equipped ivf lab.

The IVF lab has an extremely important role to play. Unfortunately, this is an area where lots of IVF clinics take shortcuts. Many don't even have a full-time embryologist. Their equipment is often of poor quality and routine quality control measures (for example, checking the temperature and CO2 level in the incubator and the pH of the culture medium) are never performed. Many embryologists do not have the expertise to do ICSI properly and lots do not have the confidence of being able to grow embryos to the blastocyst stage. Sadly, it’s easy to take ignorant patients for a ride, and these clinics take advantage of the patient’s ignorance.

The poor patients suffer, and end up failing multiple cycles, when all they need is to take treatment at a good clinic which has a good IVF lab, which can generate good-quality embryos for them. It can be hard for patients to make out which clinic is good and which clinic is bad. This is why it’s important for patients to educate themselves, so they can find out which clinic offers the facilities they need in order to maximize their chances of getting pregnant. This does require doing homework and putting in a certain amount of effort, but it’s well worth it when the IVF cycle succeeds.

The IVF lab equipment and the skills of embryologist play a very crucial role in IVF treatment, but most IVF patients are clueless about what happens in the lab. Every patient needs to know following points about the IVF Lab in the IVF Clinic.

It allows visualising the eggs, sperm and embryos because of the high degree of magnification it offers, and also allows to precisely manipulate the fine pipettes which are used to perform surgery on the eggs and embryos.
  5. Freeze Control. It provides a patented and reliable method for heat transfer and temperature regulation in the freezing of embryos for long term preservation and viable recovery. These are liquid nitrogen containers, in which sperm and embryos are frozen and preserved at -196 C.
