Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA) in the IVF laboratory play an important role in the success of any IVF program. The role of QC procedures in the IVF laboratory is to fine tune existing protocols in order to more effectively help infertile patients in their quest to have a healthy baby.

Every IVF Clinic dealing with infertility issues and handling advanced issues in respect to reproductive health and Artificial Reproductive Technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), will need in their IVf Clinic state-of-the-art IVF Laboratory. This IVF Laboratory has to be equipped with latest IVF technology equipments aiding in the process of IVF and other medical applications.


The IVF Lab Facility is the most critical work area in the entire ART IVF Center. In this area sperm embryos and Oocytes are manipulated openly. This is specifically designed for aseptic handling of oocytes and embryos to minimize microbial contamination. This is an advance process where embryos are formed and transferred into women’s uterus.

IVF today is among one of the most profitable treatments to offer in the Healthcare Industry. IVF clinic or fertility specialty hospital can provide better chances at conception to infertile couples with IVF ART technology. Egg donation and egg freezing programs are integral part of any IVF Clinic.

IVF Clinic or IVF Center requires 400-800 sq ft of space to start a basic IVF facility. More elaborate and advance facilities require about 1000-1800 sq ft of space. The basic rooms required are OT, Embryo Culture Lab (IVF lab), Semen Collection Room, Embryo Transfer Room and utility room. The embryologist need to be trained to do basic IVF lab routine work and the clinician need to have the knowledge of follicle monitoring on ultrasound and ovum pickup in any IVF Laboratory. Because every IVF lab or In Vitro lab has specific requirements for their IVF program, all ART IVF centers have their own need for a variety of configurations and accessories for IVF Workstations.IVF Workstations need to be positioned sensibly and logically to make working more practical and accident free.


The CO2 Incubator is the heart of an IVF Lab. This is the place where all embryos live and grow before they go back to their mummy’s uterus.

The CO2 incubators are the most important equipment for the work performed in the IVF lab because the eggs harvested from the ovaries of the patient for fertilization spend the greatest amount of time outside of the body in the incubator.

Variation in pH and temperature affects the embryo quality and thereby pregnancy rate. Therefore proper maintenance of CO2 incubator is very critical.

CO2 incubators are widely used in scientific research to grow and maintain cell cultures. Typical fields of application include tissue engineering, in vitro fertilization, neuroscience, cancer research and other mammalian cell research. The new Micro Galaxy CO2 incubator is designed for, but not limited to, use in vitro Fertilisation (IVF) techniques. IVF procedures demand accurate temperature and CO2 levels, quick and convenient incubator access within a work station and fast recovery after the door is opened. (The Micro Galaxy is a unique new product which satisfies all these requirements.) It has Micro footprint with 14 ltr capacity.

The following features of Micro Galaxy CO2 incubator makes it widely acceptable in IVF Workstation.

1. Seamless internal chamber with rounded corners

2. Personal incubator for cultivation of sensitive samples

3. High humidity with completely dry wall chambe

4. Simple, easily removable shelf and racking system for easier cleaning

5. Compact design and stack ability optimise laboratory space

6. Infrared CO, sensor for fast and accurate CO, recovery

IVF workstations:

IVF workstations are specially designed to use in fertility laboratories for research work, ART and IVF Laboratories in the fields of human and animal reproduction. Many In Vitro Workstations are dedicated to IVF and the many ART techniques. The idea is to achieve the best possible controlled environment for the gametes and embryos during the various procedures to minimize microbial contamination.

This includes hygienic conditions to minimize microbial contamination, a warmed work surface for the sustenance of biological matter and provisions for the use of microscopes.

In the IVF workstation, air is taken in from above the workstation and passed through an ULPA filter. The filtered air is then passed through the main chamber in a vertical laminar (unidirectional) air stream before being exhausted through the front opening.

Normally an IVF Workstation is in the capacity of 3, 4, 5-foot width with Single Scope, as well as 6 foot width Single Scope and double Scope. For labs that may not be able to accommodate a 6-foot width yet require more bench space than a 4-foot bench, the 5-foot IVF Workstation is the perfect alternative.

The Key Benefits of using an IVF Workstation in IVF Laboratory are

1. The noise level is kept very low (less than 55 dB).

2. The pH and osmolarity are controlled with a built-in gassing and humidifying system.

3. Flushing CO2-gas mixture maintains correct pH.

4. Prevents frequent openings of CO2-incubator.

5. Temperature is controlled with a built-in heated area in the table plate.

6. Maximum work area in well lit laminar flow cabinet, flushed with a vertical flow of HEPA filtered air.

7. Microscopes already in use and microscopes purchased separately can be built into the workstation.

8. The use of stainless steel makes it easy to clean.

In today’s world a computer controlled IVF workstation are predefined in the size. Location of the crater in the ZP, documents various parameters, and automatically transfer the data to a spread sheet or to the patient’s records.

Every Normal Diagnostics IVF Workstation should include Vertical Laminar Flow, Integrated Warming Plate, Mounting Assembly for One Microscope, Stereomicroscope Installation, External Water Circulator and Heater, Hoses, Tubing, and Clamps, Silent Operation (less than 55db), HEPA Air Filtration, Electrical Receptacle Integrated to Back Plane, Floor Stands (available in 30″and 36″ heights) and Expert On-site Installation.

These Workstations are dedicated to IVF and ART techniques. The idea is to achieve the best possible environment for the gametes and embryos during the various procedures and low noise level in the Workstation for your comfort.

Luxembourg’s largest steel company Arcelor is ready to study Mittal Steel‘s improved takeover offer, the former said on Sunday, opening the door to possible talks with Indian steel magnate Laxminivas Mittal. Arcelor Chairman Joseph Kinsch told reporters after a meeting of Arcelor’s board that the company’s directors would be ready to examine the details of Mittal’s latest offer once it has been approved by the CSSF (Luxembourg’s financial regulatory body).

Until Sunday, Arcelor, the world’s second-largest steel company, had firmly rejected world-leader Mittal’s bid to take the former company over and form a global steel giant. The softening of Arcelor’s stance comes after Mittal Steel raised its hostile cash-and-equity bid by a third on Friday and dropped a key demand for family control over the combined entity.

Media reports had suggested that Arcelor was trying to find another company to rescue it from being taken over by Mittal Steel. Possible candidates included Russian tycoon Vladimir Lisin and Russia’s Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK). Mittal’s move on Friday came after the value of its initial offer fell more than 10 percent behind the market worth of Arcelor, as the latter announced a buyback of its own shares at above-market prices to ward off Mittal Steel.

Laxminivas Mittal, who has hinted that the bitter takeover battle might have a hint of racism involved in it, told the French newspaper La Tribune that he was sure that the attractive nature of his revised offer would enable him to obtain over 50% of the Arcelor shares. He added that he was of the opinion that the involvement of a Russian third party would not be in the best interests of Arcelor’s shareholders.

Bicycle sales in Australia have recorded record sales of 1,273,781 units for 2006, exceeding car sales by 32 percent. It is the fifth year in a row that the bicycle industry has sold more than one million units, a figure yet to be realised by car manufacturers.

The Cycling Promotion Fund (CPF) spokesman Ian Christie said Australians were increasingly using bicycles as an alternative to cars. Sales rose nine percent in 2006 while the car market stalled. Mr Christie said people were looking to cut their fuel costs and improve their fitness.

Mr Christie said organisations were beginning to supply bicycles as a company vehicle. “There is an emerging trend towards people using bikes as their official company-supplied vehicle in place of the traditional company car,” he said.

“Some of Australia’s biggest corporations now have bicycle fleets, and when you add in government organisations, we now know of at least 50 organisations which operate fleets of bikes.”

“Although the company bicycle is a long way from taking over from the company car, it’s an important trend when you consider that nearly half of all cars sold are to company fleets.”

The CPF claims most commutes to work are less than 5 kilometres (3 miles) making bicycle travel a viable alternative.

United States President Barack Obama test drove a Chevrolet Volt Friday during a visit to a General Motors plant in Michigan. The visit was part of a larger trip to the Detroit area to discuss the progress of Obama’s bailout of the auto industry earlier in his administration.

As the president toured the factory, managers invited him to test drive the Volt, which will soon be manufactured there. After consulting reluctant top aides and Secret Service personnel, Obama accepted. “I hope it has an air bag,” said press secretary Robert Gibbs. Obama hopped into the car with assembly manager Teri Quigley, buckled his seat belt, and crept forward about ten feet (three meters). As he got out he remarked that the ride was “pretty smooth”.

Obama visited the Detroit area to defend his controversial decision to invest US$50 billion in the failing auto industry last year. “It’s estimated we would have lost another million jobs had we not stepped in,” said Obama. Instead, job growth totaled 50,000 workers this year, the largest since 1999. Obama warns, though, that recovery is not yet complete.

This was the second time Obama drove a car since early 2007, when as a presidential candidate he requested Secret Service protection. The first was a Dodge Charger, which he drove a few months ago at a Secret Service training facility.

After an oil pipeline in China exploded and spilled around 1,500 tonnes of oil into the Yellow Sea near the city of Dalian, the government has launched a cleanup operation consisting of more than 800 vessels.

The spill occurred on Friday, after a pipeline at the port exploded. The oil terminal at the port has been closed ever since. Authorities have been using 24 ships designed for cleaning up oil, and today ordered around 800 civilian fishing boats to join the operation.

The spill has been halted, although an oil slick which measured 50 square kilometers at its height remains in the harbor, and ships are using absorbent foam to remove oil from the water, as well as barriers to keep oil from reaching the shore. Despite their efforts, parts of the coast reportedly have a slick of oil evident on beaches and rocks.

Although rough seas have affected the cleanup, authorities expect to have completed the operations within ten days.

According to domestic media, concerns over safety at the port have been raised in the past; a government study in 2006 noted that five projects at the port were at risk of accidents.

The spill has caused ongoing disruptions to the port’s operations, with several ships, including six oil tankers carrying a total of around twelve million barrels of oil, having been diverted to other ports both in China and other countries.
