HIGHEST POSSIBLE STANDARDS
Our technology is cutting edge, precise and reliable. From the materials that we use inside the laboratory (only the best culture and freezing media is used, regardless of the cost), to the handling of the embryos and everything in between, we only provide one level of service… the service of excellence.
OUR EXPERT HEAD EMBRYOLOGIST
Each process in our laboratory is supervised personally by our certified embryology laboratory director, Dr Kostantinos Economou PhD MSc. He is a renowned and respected embryologist who achieves excellence in his work, something that is reflected by his very high success rates and making him arguably one of the best embryologists internationally.
Dr Economou’s knowledge and expertise, having worked for almost 18 years in some of the best fertility clinics in the UK and Greece, provides a strong foundation for our excellent laboratory results. His dedication and commitment to his work ensures that each and every patients’ embryos are treated individually with personalized care to the highest standards. This, of course, makes all the difference to the final treatment outcome and contributes significantly to our clinic’s very high overall success rate.
OUR LABORATORY SERVICES
Our fertility laboratory provides both analytical testing and clinical services for all aspects of assisted reproductive technology.
This includes IVF techniques such as oocyte/embryo culture, artificial insemination (including micro-fertilization – ICSI), blastocyst culture and transfer, embryo and oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing), embryo transfer and platelet rich plasma (PRP). Our laboratory also specializes in offering preimplantation genetic screening/diagnosis (PGS/PGD) for detection of specific genetic conditions.
Our laboratory offers rapid cryopreservation or vitrification of embryos and ova. This means that now every woman is able to cryopreserve her own eggs or embryos for use in the future without any risk on their quality.
SPERM ASSESSMENT AND PREPARATION
Our laboratory also provides a range of analytical tests (for semen analysis and assessment of individual sperm morphology) and clinical services (sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination, FNA and TESA testis biopsy, intracellular Sperm Injection (IMSI) and semen cryopreservation).
