NGC Clinic is equipped with a modern embryology laboratory: it is a complex of rooms with special equipment,conditions and finely tuned processes. The success of hundreds of IVF programs depend on its work, which is why we reconstructed and equipped the building according to the highest world standard.
How does the embryology laboratory work?
The NGC clinic has three separate rooms, connected by pass-through-windows as well as two manipulation labs. In the the manipulation labs punctures and embryo transfers are performed. Embryologists work next to the pass-through-windows and interact with the fertility specialist on the spot, during the procedure. The entrance to the embryology laboratory is closed not just for the patients but for the majority of the employees of IVF clinic as well. Even our clinic’s doctors can get in there only if accompanied by an embryologist. Embryologist and the doctor accompanying have to fully change their dress at the entrance to the lab, which means change their shoes, put on masks and headdresses. In the lobby before the lab the floor has special adhesive aseptic mats, which provide 100% protection against microorganisms that may be on the soles of the shoes.
For the embryology laboratory it is important to create an ideal microclimate. That is possible to do only in a separate building: in St. Petersburg only two clinics meet this requirement and one of them is - NGC clinic. The requirements for the purity of the embryology laboratory is very high: a separate air supply and exhaust ventilation, equipped with special class 11 , air cleaning filters, which clean the air from all contamination, including - micro particles, allergens, bacteria, molds and toxins.A specially installed CODA AERO, which operates within the laboratory, provides additional clearance from the smallest bacteria.
"The embryology laboratory - is a clearly and smoothly functioning system, where sophisticated devices and the latest technology come together in the hands of the professionals of NGC clinic."
