IVF Lab Procedures for IVF at Ovation Fertility and Our Nashville Fertility Center
Our reproductive laboratory became one of the first in the country to be accredited by The Reproductive Laboratory Accreditation Program of The College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). We also maintain CLIA and Tennessee State licensure.
Our laboratory director, Dr. Melanie R. Freeman, has worked in this field since 1984, and continues to keep our laboratory at the forefront of innovative IVF research. Dr. Freeman also serves as an on-site CAP inspector to determine if other programs are maintaining the quality required to achieve accreditation.
The embryologists who staff our fully equipped state-of-the-art IVF laboratory have many years of experience with manipulation of eggs and embryos. They also have expertise in the most recent, innovative IVF procedures including intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), culture of embryos to the blastocyst stage, blastocyst vitrification, and embryo biopsy.
