Quality Management System and Witnessing Procedure

Total Quality Management System

We have total quality management systems in place to ensure exceptionally high standards of care, ENSURE PATIENT SAFETY  and to ensure consistently high success rates.

  • Witnessing procedures are in place to ensure no errors happen while handling gametes / embryos in the lab.
  • Documentation –We have exclusive IVF software to ensure every step of the process is documented in great detail and details of storage of gametes and embryos are maintained.
  • We have SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) and Daily LOG of temperature, pH of incubators and other lab equipment on a twice-daily basis to maintain standards.
  • Periodically check the quality indicators to ensure consistently high success rates.
  • Toxicity tested labware, media and disposables are used to ensure quality.
  • We have a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Service) back up for all our equipment.
  • We do preventive maintenance of all our equipment to maintain high standards at regular intervals.

Witnessing Procedure

All samples right from semen collection to Embryo transfer and cryopreservation are labeled with patient unique ID. Whenever a gamete or embryo is moved from one dish to another there are 2 people witnessing the process so that there is no mixing up of samples. This ensures the correct gametes are used to make the embryo and the right embryo is transferred to the right couple.
