A unique combination of expertise in not only embryology but also human genetics, allows our lab team to fundamentally understand the whole reproduction process from beginning to end, giving them a particular edge when understanding and treating fertility issues. By pioneering scientific research, to understand fertility even better and drive the field forward, our team are always at the forefront. Our lab team have been published in multiple journals and are led by Dr Christian Ottolini – read more about our Lab Director here.
Our lab team is fully involved in the patient’s journey – following them through from the initial planning stages, stimulation phase, embryo development and aftercare. A deep understanding of fertility enables the team to explain treatments to patients in layman’s terms, allowing them to truly understand an otherwise potentially confusing journey.
At The Evewell, our aim is to empower patients to take control of their fertility and give them the options they deserve to build a family. Throughout the process, we gather information about our patients’ fertility, allowing them to make more informed decisions to preserve their fertility for the future.
Our state-of-the-art lab facilities contain top of the range technology including our incubators, air handling and temperature management systems. Time-lapse imaging, used to monitor the development of the embryos, is also used routinely in our lab, which enables the lab team to gather information without interfering and minimises stress to the embryos.
The cleanliness in our laboratory is exceptionally high, making our lab is one of the cleanest laboratories in the country.
In case of any emergency, we have a number of measures in place to ensure that any current cycles, eggs and embryos are preserved. In case of a power outage, we have a full suite of back-up power to ensure that no equipment is affected. In case of an extreme emergency in the clinic, we can transfer the embryos to a partnering lab where they can be stored safely.
