State-of-the-Art IVF Lab 

One of the most overlooked and yet critical components of helping our patients achieve a successful, healthy pregnancy can be attributed to the advanced technology and procedures practiced in the laboratory. That’s why The Center has a highly advanced IVF lab that does its best to simulate a natural uterine environment. Our IVF lab: 

  • Minimizes the impact of toxic environmental factors 
  • Employs high air quality filtration 
  • Uses highly advanced mini-incubators 

The successful outcomes of our patients can also be attributed to the skill and dedication of our highly experienced embryologists and lab team. In addition, our IVF lab has specialized equipment to monitor the progress of your embryo and perform procedures such as cryopreservation, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), biopsies, and preimplantation genetic testing. 

All the equipment we use is hooked up to remote monitoring systems and backup generator systems to ensure that it functions 24/7. A cloud-based alarm lets our team know if there is anything to be concerned about so it can be handled immediately, prioritizing the safety and health of the embryos in our care. 

IVF Procedures The Center Offers 

Since The Center began offering IVF in 1985, we have kept our success rates above the national average. The Center offers IVF procedures, including intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and pre-implantation genetic testing. 

IVF procedures involve a sperm fertilizing an egg outside of the uterus in our IFV lab. The fertilized embryo is then cultured in our lab until it reaches the blastocyst stage; then, the healthiest embryo is transferred back to the uterus for implantation, hopefully resulting in a pregnancy.  

Assisted fertilization, also known as ICSI, is also an option that can be used in conjunction with IVF. This method improves the treatment of severe male factor infertility, like low sperm count. A single sperm is injected into an egg to improve the chance of fertilization. Then, the embryo is transferred back to the uterus for implantation. 

Assisted hatching can enhance pregnancy rates when used with certain IVF treatments. A small opening is made in the embryo’s shell right before implantation, making it more likely that the embryo will implant on the uterine wall. 

The right option for you will depend on you and your partner’s medical/fertility history. Your fertility specialist will help you review all your options and choose the right path.
