Embryologists – Who are we & what do we do

Embryologists – Who are we & what do we do

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) – is a blend of rigorous science as well as an art form involving proficiency, empathy, and integrity towards couples. For infertility treatments to lead to positive outcomes, it is critical for all stakeholders to be working at the peak of their efficiency, namely, the Clinician, Nurses, and the Embryologists.

The role of an embryologist is often understated in IVF treatments. However, this role is decisive in ensuring consistent outcomes and requires the underpinning of multiple behaviors including a scrupulous adherence to processes and the highest code of ethics.

At IVF Access, we are a dedicated team of embryologists with years of training and experience who have been certified to handle cases with the utmost care. Our embryologists have had training from the world’s leading universities and have been exposed to the newest technologies. IVF Access has also developed its own proprietary technology and combined it with the state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the highest level of service to its patients. Our embryologists are engaged in bringing in new developments to improve the quality of IVF treatment.

At IVF Access, our clinicians and embryologists work as a unified team around the clock to continually discuss the best possible treatment paths for our patients. Our embryologists are trained & prepared to listen to and understand our patient’s needs. We passionately believe in supporting our patients psychologically and helping them stay calm through the treatment.

Our patient queries often include:

  • How do you ensure that my sample is secure?
  • IVF Access has designed its own DOUBLECHECK protocol. Every time we handle a couple’s sample, this is independently witnessed by another person who cross checks the identity of the sample.
  • For how long can we store our embryos?
  • Once embryos are frozen, they can be stored almost indefinitely. However, we recommend that frozen embryos are used within 10 years.
  • Why have I got so few embryos?
  • IVF-ICSI is a procedure which is always performed on mature eggs. At each stage of embryo growth, there could be a reduction in the number of good quality embryos as the developmental capacity of each egg is different.
  • You have transferred two good quality embryos. Why am I still not pregnant?

Embryo failure can happen in natural conception as well. A good quality embryo may not lead to pregnancy. The success of an embryo transfer ultimately depends on the genetic make-up of the embryo and the receptivity of the endometrium. IVF Access ensures highest possible outcomes by commissioning advanced genetic tests including Endometrial Receptive Assay (ERA) and by checking the genetic status of the embryos for Aneuploidy.
