Biometrics

At The IVF CenterSM we leverage the most cutting-edge biometrics technology to ensure 100% positive identification of every embryo, egg, and sperm specimen that passes through our facilities and the laboratory partners we utilize.

These rigid protocols, backed by science-based technologies, protect our patients against IVF lab mix-ups and ensure your peace of mind.

We are committed to providing the most advanced and innovative clinical treatments available today. This includes adopting the most rigorous patient and human sample identification processes that guarantee the accuracy of our work while creating a transparent process throughout the patient’s fertility journey.

eIVF Biometrics is the next evolution in lab security, ensuring the myriad samples you send are controlled and tracked properly with no room for errors to occur.

eIVF Biometrics at The IVF CenterSM

The IVF CenterSM has invested in the most state-of-the-art technologies to ensure physical accuracy during the infertility treatment process. eIVF Biometrics is the first and only fertility-based platform providing 100% positive patient identification by using cutting-edge biometrics technology.

If you’ve heard of facial recognition or fingerprint identification, you already know how biometrics works. Biometrics use automated computer technologies that recognize a person or a human lab sample by a physiological or behavioral characteristic. This could include a fingerprint, face, hand geometry, iris, or other personal identifier. These systems represent the latest in impenetrable security technologies to reduce the risk of misidentification during processes that previously relied on human identification methods. 

During the complex process of in vitro fertilization, biometrics technologies reduce the risk of errors, provide traceability of samples in real-time, and eliminate manual processes such as human handwriting to label lab samples. 

By leveraging digital tracking and lab e-witnessing technology, eIVF Biometrics eliminates the manual process of patient and sample identification. The powerful features of this software allow us to offer our patients:

  • Real-time transparent patient cycle and procedure tracking that is customized by patient
  • Simplified computerized labeling and identification of samples that minimizes the risk of a mismatch
  • Full integration into the patient’s electronic medical record so that data is easily and accurately tracked
  • Improved risk management by removing the chance of human error with a 100% accurate positive ID on every egg, sperm, and embryo

Simplified labeling and identification during this process allows complete accuracy in the sample identification process, by using:

  • Bar code scanning
  • Fingerprints
  • Wristbands
  • QR codes
  • Secure pin numbers

These security procedures minimize the risk of patient and sample mismatches while automating the entire patient process to help us deliver the best clinical care. Today, with the use of these modern technologies, we can track your physical samples in real-time, from beginning to end of the laboratory process. Data is easily passed between internal electronic patient records and external laboratories because eIVF biometrics software is fully integrated with our existing tools.

Using Biometrics During IVF

When you consider there are more than 150,000 new IVF cycles performed in the U.S. each year, you can appreciate the complexity of the delicate embryo transfer cycle. The good news is that there have been very few errors, however, when it comes to your family, even one lab mix up is one too many. Unfortunately, we have seen several of these devastating incidents in the past few years. 

Mark P. Trolice, M.D., FACOG, FACS, FACE, board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist and founder of The IVF CenterSM says, “The time has come for all fertility medicine clinics to adopt the latest in biometric technology. Our patients feel more secure there is an automated system in process to monitor their gametes throughout their entire fertility journey.” 

Attention to detail in the IVF process is just as important as the compassion our staff offers patients. While we know each of our patients well, we also ensure 100% positive patient identification with cutting edge biometrics to track each patient and their eggs, sperm, and embryos. 

Each staff member is thoroughly trained in these systems to ensure your future family is safe and secure at every step during the IVF process. Our partnership with eIVF Biometric technology allows us the highest level of control over every part of your fertility journey. It’s just another way that we perfect the art and science of fertility treatment to help you reach your goals.

Why The IVF CenterSM Is Unique

At The IVF CenterSM we recognize the process of IVF can at times be overwhelming.

To address this issue, we have an IVF Nurse available 24/7 to answer questions, guide you through the process, and provide emotional support. We also offer a Reproductive Health Psychologist to help couples develop their best coping strategies along their journey.

Success of the IVF Program at The IVF CenterSM is due to our scientific and technological excellence coupled with our compassionate and highly personalized approach to patient care.

The IVF CenterSM is committed to each couple’s success by providing individualized and supportive care along the way. We consider each couple part of our family as we attempt to help them create their own.
