Our IVF Lab

The technology to serve you better

Our state-of-the-art, onsite lab embryology and andrology lab is a vital part of our commitment to deliver better care and better results to our patients.

It’s important to us that we offer our patients the choices that technology and science can provide, but it’s also important to us that we ensure every step in your journey takes place under our extremely rigorous quality control standards.

With many clinics, lab services are outsourced, and while there are many high-quality labs out there, every time sperm, eggs or embryos are transferred creates an opportunity to introduce error into your experience. When you choose to become a PNWF patient, you’re trusting us with a precious responsibility, and we take that seriously. Our investments in our lab and facilities are just one way we demonstrate that commitment to superior care, and it is something that undoubtedly contributes to our success rates.

If you visit us, we encourage you to look through the glass in the waiting area to see our lab. We’re very proud to show it off!

IVF/Embryology Lab

Our embryology laboratory was designed with clean room conditions which minimizes distress to eggs and embryos. The Embryology laboratory is equipped with a state-of-the-art air handling unit that eliminates all volatile organic compounds as well as particulates that are deemed harmful to the embryo.

Egg Freezing

We have expertise in the most up to date freezing technique, called vitrification, for embryos, and we have more experience with frozen eggs than most IVF embryology labs in the United States. Most clinics offer egg freezing, but very few have taken the next step to optimize the process to produce the highest success rates possible from frozen eggs. As of March 2017, Pacific NW Fertility celebrated the more than 300 live births from eggs frozen at our clinic.
