Our Milestones

Our Laboratory

An In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) lab is unlike any other lab. Precision is the name of the game, especially where the temperature and hygiene standards are concerned.

Strict controls in the IVF laboratory, such as CO2 controlled atmosphere with infra red CO2 technology, uniform temperature and humidifed work area, HEPA and carbon filter to provide microbiological-free, viral-free and VOC-free environment, ensure that the eggs, sperm and embryos harvested are handled in optimal conditions. All these in our Class-100 with Laminar Flow laboratory combine to increase your chances of success.

  • Remote Alarm System

    The remote alarm system, resembling a medical fridge, monitors all equipment in our IVF laboratory 24/7. Warning signals are emitted if any error messages are detected. For additional back-up, the system has an auto-dialer, which contacts the embryologist on call so that immediate action can be taken. This ensures that all the equipments are working well at all times, 365 days a year.

  • IVF Chamber

    The IVF Chamber acts like a mobile incubator that keeps your embryos happy and healthy. Shaped like a baby incubator, the IVF Chamber provides a compact and enclosed environment for IVF procedures. The interior of the chamber is maintained at 37°C with high humidity to resemble the human uterus, and embryologists conduct their investigations via a microscope by inserting their hands into the controlled chamber.

  • Cryopreservation

    Cryopreservation is the process of freezing eggs, sperm, embryos or ovarian tissue at below -196°C using vapour-based liquid nitrogen. During an IVF cycle, more than one embryo may be produced, which can be cryopreserved. These embryos can be used for a subsequent pregnancy, reducing the costs in a repeat IVF cycle. Cryopreservation can also be used to preserve eggs or sperm before cancer treatment.

  • Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) Station

    At the ICSI Station, embryologists carefully select one viable sperm and inject it into a good egg using a pipette. This intricate procedure, conducted using an inverted microscope that enlarges them by 200 times, requires a steady hand and calm disposition.

  • Regular Incubators

    Once they leave your body, your eggs and embryos will be kept in sterile incubators that are kept at 37°C to mimic body temperature.

  • IVF Grade Culture Dishes

    We invest in IVF Grade culture dishes that are tested and certified for Mouse Embryo Assay (MEA) because they are in direct contact with live embryos. The cost is three times higher than tissue culture grade culture dishes but the investment is necessary to provide an optimal environment for embryo development in the first few days of fertilisation.

  • Electronic Witnessing System

    Patient identification is a crucial aspect of our lab operations. To prevent any mix-up of eggs, sperm or embryos, our culture dishes are equipped with the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which sets off warning signals when the samples do not match. Before and during the process of Oocyte Pick-up (OPU), the doctor and nurses will also ask your name for multiple verification.

  • Mini Incubators

    To minimise stressing the embryos with the frequent opening and closing of the incubator doors, only one or two are kept in Mini Incubators while waiting for transfer into the body.

  • Laser System

    A special laser is used to conduct an ‘embryo surgery’ known as zona drilling or assisted hatching, where the shell of the embryo is softened to improve implantation rates and increase pregnancy rates. The laser can also be used to drill through the shell of the egg to extract one cell for the Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) procedure.
