The Embryology Laboratory

The following Embroyology services are provided by us at out clinic:

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is a process by which the eggs are retrieved from the ovary and fertilized by sperm in the laboratory.  The resulting embryos are then transferred back into the woman’s womb (uterus) three to five days later.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI is a micromanipulation procedure performed in the laboratory whereby a single sperm is injected into each egg to achieve fertilization.  ICSI is the treatment of choice for male factor infertility such as low sperm count or poor sperm motility.

Embryo Cryopreservation

Typically, two to three embryos are transferred into the uterus after IVF or ICSI.  Extra healthy embryos can be frozen for future attempts at pregnancy.

Assisted Hatching (AH)

AH is a micromanipulation procedure performed in the laboratory just prior to the embryo transfer.  During AH, a tiny opening is made in the embryo’s shell (zona) to facilitate hatching.  AH is indicated for embryos with thick zona, and for embryos from woman who have elevated FSH, over the age of 38, or with multiple failed IVF attempts.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)PGD is performed three days after IVF or ICSI.  A single cell is removed from the embryo for genetic testing.  PGD has been shown to reduce the possibility of a genetically abnormal pregnancy and decrease the incidence of spontaneous miscarriages.

 

Blastocyst Culture

Embryos have traditionally been transferred three days after fertilization. Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Over the last few years, commercially available embryo culture media have been significantly improved to allow the culture time to be extended an additional two days to the blastocyst stage of development.  When a patient has more than eight good quality embryos, this “extended culture” allows the very best embryo or two to be selected for transfer while minimizing the chance of high-order, multiple births.

The embryology laboratory is equipped with the latest and premier quality equipment. Our latest addition is the Saturn Laser (Research Instruments, U.K). Strict quality control is maintained in the laboratory with special attention being paid to air quality control, temperature regulation, and the sterility of the laboratory and IVF theatre. We use only the best culture media (Medicult, Denmark), pick-up needles (Cook ,Austrlia), embryo-transfer catheters (Cook -Australia) and other lab disposables (B-D Falcon). This ensures that we maintain a high success rate.
