• Scientific leadership

    Laboratories that perform at the highest standard

Setting a new benchmark in scientific services.

Under the leadership of world-renowned embryologist, Professor David Gardner, our scientific strategy is designed to set a new benchmark in the delivery of services from the IVF laboratory.

To enable this vision, we adopt advanced technology in our labs, ensuring our patients’ safety and, ultimately, to drive successful outcomes. 

  • The EmbryoScope+ incubator is at the heart of our laboratories and enables our embryologists to monitor the growth of an embryo at every stage of development, taking a photo every 10 minutes over a five day period. Our scientific teams can study the live images without the need to touch or handle the embryo. It is these images that our Artificial Intelligence system studies to guide embryo selection.
  • Virtus laboratories are also equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic witnessing system, called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). This system detects and monitors all activity in the IVF laboratory, digitally tracking the identity of each patient’s eggs, sperm and the resulting embryo to provide added peace of mind for patients and embryology staff alike.
