What is a Certified Clean Room for Ultra IVF?
In addition to undergoing the genetic screening process, part of our Ultra IVF is the fact that we determine, or measure, all of the components that could impact the embryo environment. These components consist of the air quality. We have installed in our labs several hepa air filters, which have allowed us to be certified as a “Clean Room.”
What a Clean Room means is that there’s not very much dust, dirt or contamination in the air, very much like what is done when people are working on a microchip. You cannot let dust land on a microchip because then it will cause it to short circuit. Same thing with an embryo, an embryo is microscopic and any piece, no matter how small, of dust or contamination can cause that embryo not to progress.
