Explore the inner workings of our IVF lab

For the couples and individuals trying to create families, fertility treatment often provides the solution they need to make their dreams come true. Our Los Angeles fertility clinic provides compassionate care, advanced fertility treatment and a state-of-the-art IVF lab. Part of our job is to take excellent care of the eggs, sperm and embryos needed to ensure our patients have successful pregnancies that result in healthy babies.

Understanding the IVF lab processes

In the laboratory, our team is responsible for analyzing and then monitoring the eggs, sperm and embryos that will result in success for our patients. We will assess the eggs and sperm to help achieve high-quality embryos. Once we combine the egg and sperm, our embryologists monitor their development until the transfer date.

Our IVF lab helps patients build their families

Headed by a team of experts, our highly trained embryologists work behind the scenes to help the egg and sperm come together to form embryos for transfer. These dedicated team members skillfully perform tasks, including combining the sperm and egg in a petri dish, and injecting a single sperm into an egg as part of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Their dedication and hard work make parenthood possible for those seeking fertility treatment.

  • We have set up our lab as a sterile environment with an advanced air filtration system and high-tech equipment.
  • The embryologists and other team members receive specialized education and training to stay updated on the latest developments in assisted reproductive technology.
  • Our staff has implemented stringent policies to safeguard and store eggs, sperm and embryos.
  • Along with standard practices related to IVF cycle preparations, we can also perform more specialized procedures like genetic screening, gender selection via preimplantation genetic testing and ICSI.
