Assisted Reproductive Laboratory - Prashanth Fertility Research Center - IVF

Assisted Reproductive Laboratory


The Laboratory is fully equipped, with all the latest and advanced equipments required for offering latest technology in treatment. This is effectively backed up with a duplicate set of equipments. Our team includes an in-house Embryologist trained at Sydney IVF Australia and two Consultant Embryologist from Australia.

Apart from them we have 12 more dedicated and fully trained embryologists in the team. Quality control assays are performed on a routine basis to ensure high quality performance.

List of Equipments with Exclusive Features

  • MINC incubators
  • Humidicribs
  • Laser Assisted Hatching Equipment
  • Intra cytoplasmic Sperm injection Microscope
  • Intracytoplasmic Morphologically selected Sperm
  • Embryoscope
  • Computer Assisted Semen Analysis
  • Andrology unit and Sperm Bank
  • DNA fragmentation

These are small bench top incubators which maintain temperature and accurate gas flow. There is a private chamber for each patient. Opening and closing the lid for one patient does not disturb the embryos of other patients.

Humidicrib is a new generation work station with a stereomicroscope. This workstation is used to manipulate the eggs and embryos in a closed environment with controlled temperature and gas which mimics the uterus. This setup enhances the quality of the embryo and there by increases the pregnancy rate.

It is a semen bank or Cryo bank that stores human sperm for future use. Semen is stored for different types of patients.

  • Sperm from donors for women who go on IVF treatment with azoospermia partners.
  • Patients who undergo chemotherapy
  • Patients who have collection difficulty
  • Patients who have low volume and count.
  • Patients whose male partner is abroad and not available at the time.

In this procedure the sperms are cryoprotected by a specific technique and stored in straws and plunged in liquid nitrogen.

Sperm DNA fragmentation is the physical breaking of one or both DNA strands in sperm chromosomes. So a DNA test is done to find the DNA Integrity to identify men who are at risk of failing to initiate pregnancy. This is treatable if it was induced by life style, smoking, alcohol or by varicocele.

halo-sperm dna fragmentation

It is an inverted microscope with an adjustable temperature treated stage. It has a suction syringe to hold the egg and an injection syringe to inject t he sperm into the egg.

CASA is designed with phase contrast microscope is provided for performing reliable assessment of sperm movement pattern and morphological characteristics in semen.
