Encino IVF Laboratory Center for Fertility and Gynecology

In 2002, our embryology/andrology laboratory was built from the ground up in an exclusive medical facility. Sparing no costs, no detail was left unnoticed in the construction of the lab, including a separate back-up power supply unit in addition to the facility's own generators, to ensure no harm to incubated embryos in the event of a power failure.

A specialized system of sensors maintains uniform pressure, temperature, and ventilation settings to optimize stable culture conditions for embryos. High air exchange per unit time, and a specifically designed anti-contamination working suite, ensure an environment of maximum sterility.

The laboratory is fully equipped with state of the art instrumentation enabling our embryologists to perform the most advanced procedures in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), including Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, Assisted Hatching, and Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis.



The state-of-the-art IVF laboratory within the Center for Fertility and Gynecology is equipped with some of the most advanced research technology and is run by renowned embryologists.
