Embryology laboratory


The embryology laboratory is a critical component of any successful fertility program. We utilize the most up-to-date technology, which includes novel incubators, advanced quality control system, smart witness and tracking system, and artificial intelligence. We strive to support families and provide patients with the best possible outcomes. 

  • State-of-the-art embryology laboratory equipment including novel incubators, microscopes, and Ai-enabled analyzers
  • New electronic witness and tracking system to lock patient identity to every gamete, oocyte and embryo. It adds an extra layer of security to each step of IVF and ensures that the eggs, sperm and embryos belonging to you are used in your treatment.
  • 24/7 IVF monitoring and alarm system, protecting your embryos in real-time.
  • Facilities include clean rooms, embryology & Air handling units that enable a healthy environment for embryo development.
  • Doctors & Embryologists who have more than 20 years of experience in IVF, provide you with personalized treatment.
Procedures in the laboratory

Learn more about common procedures our lab provides, from oocyte cryopreservation to frozen embryo transfer. 
Oocyte Cryopreservation
Oocyte cryopreservation, more commonly referred to as egg freezing, is the process where retrieved oocytes are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen. This involves using cryoprotecting solutions to protect eggs from damage, and then flash freeze eggs and submerge eggs into liquid nitrogen. Frozen eggs are then plunged into liquid nitrogen tanks and stored for future use.

ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection in which embryologists use micromanipulation techniques and equipment to inject a single sperm into a single egg to fertilize the egg. ICSI is used for male factor infertility to promote fertilization or overcome fertilization failure.

Assisted Hatching
Assisted hatching is a procedure where embryologists use a laser beam to make a small opening on the outer shell surrounding the embryo. It enables embryo biopsy in preimplantation genetic testing, and it is believed to improve embryo seeding in the uterus and increase pregnancy rates after embryo transfer.

Embryo Biopsy
Embryo biopsy is a procedure that is part of preimplantation genetic testing (PGT). Embryo biopsy is typically performed on Day 5 – Day 7 after fertilization. At biopsy, 4-5 cells that will become part of the placenta are sampled from each embryo and sent to genetic testing. Cells that will develop into fetus are kept intact.

Frozen Embryo Transfer
Embryos you decide to use later are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen. When you are ready to conceive, we thaw embryos and transfer the embryo into the uterus to let it implant in the uterus and establish pregnancy.
