    Our Embryology Lab

    We are proud of our embryology lab.

    Because our embryologists are highly experienced, thorough, dedicated and everyday they work with attention to detail.

    Because our lab has been designed, built and are operated daily with only one purpose in mind: your healthy baby.

    The air system in our lab has been installed according to the European standards. The air is being refreshed and filtered constantly in such a way that it gets cleaned from particles and micro-organisms. The lab has been built using neutral materials that do not release toxic substances in the lab, where the embryos are cultured.

    Because we offer all tests and the latest and most effective fertility treatments:

    • Sperm analysis and DFI test
    • Obtaining sample from testicular or epidydimal biopsy (PESA, TESA, TESE) using a fine needle
    • Oocyte retrieval, grading and processing oocytes before fertilization
    • In-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
    • Culture and grading of embryos before embryo transfer
    • Blastocyst culture and embryo transfer
    • Cryo-preservation (freezing) of sperm samples, oocytes and embryos
    • Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to check embryos for hereditary diseases (e.g. thalassaemia or cystic fibrosis) or chromosomal abnormalities

    Because we use mini incubators

    The state-of-the-art mini incubators simulate the natural environment of the fallopian tube, where conception normally takes place (low oxygen levels and the right CO2 and nitrogen levels) and embryos start to grow. Mini incubators offer a unique advantage – each couple’s embryos are cultured separately. This way we make sure that embryos are cultured in ideal conditions.

    Because we use the best culture media

    In the mini incubators, embryos are cultured using special culture media. The quality of these media is crucial for the success of your IVF cycle. We carefully choose the culture media and we use only the best quality media without considering the cost.

    Because we emphasize on informing our patients

    The embryologists inform each couple about their embryos. Right before the embryo transfer, you will be given a written report about the course of your treatment and photos of the embryos.
