Newport Beach IVF Laboratory Program Specializes in Next Generation Solutions
Ovation® Fertility’s IVF laboratory in Newport Beach has assisted men and women with family building services since 1992. Every Ovation professional adheres to strict industry regulations, and our Newport Beach IVF lab maintains the highest standards. In fact, the program was one of the first IVF labs in the country and is known for breakthrough research in areas such as:
- Assisted hatching
- Blastocyst culturing
- Embryo selection
Ovation Fertility’s Newport Beach IVF lab is nationally accredited by the College of American Pathologists, federally certified by CLIA and certified as a Reproductive Specialty Lab and Cryopreservation Tissue Bank by the State of California.
Ovation Fertility Newport Beach has one of the largest IVF lab teams in the United States and consists of embryologists at the top of their field. Lab Director Mitchel C. Schiewe, M.S., Ph.D., HCLD (ABB), ELD (ABB), has remained active in the field of embryology since the advent of IVF and has helped influence the way advanced reproductive technologies are performed today.
Reproductive endocrinologists around the world recognize Dr. Schiewe for his contributions to the field. He has served as chairman and moderator with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and as a journal reviewer for Fertility & Sterility and Theriogenology. He also co-founded the Society for Reproductive Biologist and Technologists (SRBT) in 2010.
Our Laboratory Techniques
It was our Newport Beach IVF lab team that developed microSecure Vitrification — the tremendously successful preservation technique for oocytes and embryos. Our highly skilled embryologists routinely perform the most intricate lab techniques in reproductive medicine today:
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, ICSI
- Blastocyst culturing
- Laser assisted hatching
- Embryo biopsy
- Blastocyst-trophectoderm biopsy
Our newly renovated laboratory features a high-efficiency air purification system to remove potential contaminants from a carefully controlled environment. This results in air that is greater than 98% cleaner than rooms without this high-tech system.
The Newport Beach IVF facilities also contain a cryopreservation lab, including an on-site tissue bank for sperm freezing, and HEPA-filtered embryo transfer suites. Housed within the same complex, patients have access to a full-service andrology lab offering semen analysis, sperm penetration assay, sperm binding assay and immunological testing.
Safe. Reliable. Secure. Successful.
