Principles Of Ivf Laboratory Practice "Laboratory Set-Up, Training And Daily Operation"

In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure practised worldwide, with patients and practitioners expecting higher live birth rates and excellent standards of quality as methodologies become more established. This practical book covers every stage in the life of an IVF laboratory, from designing and planning the laboratory to training the embryologists and ongoing management and troubleshooting, providing step-by-step protocols for today's best practice. Chapters follow the same structure, allowing readers to translate complex and specialized procedures into a standard workflow. Several new chapters are included in this second edition, including descriptions of the protocol for piezo-ICSI, safe and effective cryostorage of embryos, and how to manage emergency situations in the IVF laboratory. Written by an international team of experts, this is an exemplary portfolio of techniques, providing a good foundation of working practice for both new and experienced embryologists.

Markus H. M. Montag started his career in IVF as post-doc in the team of Prof SC Ng, the father of the first subzonal insemination (SUZI) baby at the National University Hospital Singapore. From 1993 to 2013 he was laboratory director in a private IVF unit and at the Universities of Bonn and Heidelberg. He is currently the CEO of ilabcomm GmbH, his IVF consultancy company.

Dean E. Morbeck is the Chief Scientific Officer for Kindbody Inc in New York City. He most recently served as Scientific Director at Fertility Associates New Zealand and Sunfert International Fertility Centre, Malaysia, and is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Monash University. Prior to moving to New Zealand, Dr. Morbeck was an Associate Professor at the Mayo Clinic.
