How to become an Embryologist?

April 21, 2015

Embryology the science of test-tube babies and in vitro fertilization is a specialized field. The profession requires both the knowledge of clinical laboratory techniques and an understanding of reproductive biology. A 4-year degree is the minimum level of education needed to work in the field. Potential employers for embryologist include fertility clinics, universities, hospitals, embryology laboratories, biotechnology firms, government organizations and commercial industries. Embryologist plays an important role in ivf and icsi cycle, handling ooctyes, sperm and embryos. Embryologist need to have perfection in the work they do and should have sufficient hands on training in the laboratory they work.

Embryology the science of test-tube babies and in vitro fertilization is a specialized field similar to the practice of medical laboratory technology. Most individuals in the field of embryology begin their careers as medical laboratory technologists or biologists. The profession requires both the knowledge of clinical laboratory techniques and an understanding of reproductive biology. Specialized training in the field is very limited and many embryologists learn their duties while on the job. Certification in the field is available, although not required for practice.

Embryologists most commonly work with physicians to assist their patients with reproductive health issues and clinical research. Clinical embryologists are responsible for retrieving eggs, assisting with in vitro fertilization, maintaining clinical records and running tests on eggs. They often work in hospitals and fertility clinics, but may also perform laboratory work or seek posts in academia.

Education Requirements to become an Embryologist

Embryologists need a bachelor’s degree in biology or biomedicine and a master’s degree in reproductive science or clinical science, though some embryologists earn a Ph.D. or M.D. as well. A few such scientists possess both a doctorate and medical degree. Courses specific to this field include biochemistry, molecular biology, endocrinology, infertility, genetics and in vitro fertilization. A bachelor’s degree typically takes 4-5 years to achieve, while a master’s takes an additional two years of study and a Ph.D. is another three years. A 4-year degree is the minimum level of education needed to work in the field. Education level requirement for embryologists vary from country to country.

To become an embryologist is a growing trend. More and more students are getting attracted for this course.

Embryology uses many medical laboratory techniques, and education in either medical laboratory technology or microbiology will provide a good basis in terms of general laboratory knowledge. For example, medical laboratory technologists and microbiologists understand how to use microscopes, prepare culture media, analyze samples and maintain records of experiments or tests.

Coursework

Embryology coursework at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is a mixture of classroom lectures and hands-on laboratory work. Primary courses focus on biomedical science, andrology, cell biology and clinical embryology. Other classes may cover ethics, genetics, cryopreservation and laboratory technology. Master’s degree and doctorate programs emphasize the development of writing skills for scientific proposals and journal publications. Many courses involve learning about male and female fertility and infertility, allowing students to develop a clear understanding of the field. Human embryologists work with infertility programs with the goal of helping couples have a baby. Potential employers for embryologist include fertility clinics, universities, hospitals, embryology laboratories, biotechnology firms, government organizations and commercial industries.

Role of an Embryologist: An embryologist plays an important role in an ivf laboratory and embryology laboratory. They should have good hands on training to perform following responsibilities.

  1. The embryologist in an in vitro fertilization program (IVF) plays a vital role in the journey to pregnancy for a couple struggling with infertility. During the course of infertility treatments, the embryologist will be involved from the start to finish of an in vitro fertilization – IVF cycle.
  2. During the testing phase before IVF treatments, the embryologists will prepare the embryology lab for infertility treatments by regulating and testing environmental conditions in the embryology laboratory including temperature, air quality, and humidity. Ordering supplies and the culture media, or liquids used to grow the embryos, is also a necessary step when preparing to start an IVF cycle.
  3. Testing of sperm and freezing sperm samples from couples about to undergo treatment is another job of the embryologist during the testing phase. Often, an embryologist will also work in the role of an andrologist, which is an individual that works with sperm.
  4. During the egg retrieval procedure, embryologists receive test tubes containing liquid removed from the ovaries. The embryologist will search this fluid under a microscope and identify the eggs. The eggs are collected together and placed into Petri dishes for the remainder of the IVF process. The embryologist is also responsible for fertilizing the eggs with sperm by conventional insemination techniques or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

The new entrants in the field of embryology,   has to have confidence and they need to stream line the functioning of their initial IVF procedures.

Learn what is expected from newly selected embryologist and embryology services  at http://www.ivftraining.com/services-embryology.aspx

  1. ICSI is a more complicated procedure that involves using microscopic instruments to remove the cumulus cells surrounding the egg, allowing the embryologist to assess egg maturity and egg quality. After the sperm preparation procedure, an individual sperm is injected into each egg.
  2. The day after the sperm and eggs are combined, the embryologist checks for fertilization by examining each egg under the microscope. Eggs that did not undergo ICSI will need to have the outer cells removed so the embryologist can perform the fertilization check. The fertilized eggs, or zygotes, are placed into an incubator that has been regulated to control gas mixture, temperature, and several other conditions till the point the zygote becomes an embryo. The embryologist will check on the embryos and change the culture media as needed during the 3 to 5 days before the embryo transfer procedure.
  3. Embryologists also perform embryo biopsy procedures on embryos at day 3 or day 5. During the embryo biopsy procedure, an embryologist must rely on experience to remove a single cell from an embryo while minimizing the risk of damage to the embryo. The embryologist will work with the laboratory performing the genetic test and coordinate the handling of the cells and test results. The embryologist’s skill at performing micromanipulation procedures on embryos can play a vital role in the success of IVF.
  4. Using micro-surgical techniques, embryologists may also perform assisted hatching on embryos. During this procedure, microscopic tools are used to thin the outer shell of embryos and make a hole in the zona pellucida to facilitate the hatching process. The embryologist will also assess the quality of the embryos and provide the infertility doctor with a report on embryo quality. This information is used to determine if there are any issues with poor embryo quality that could affect the chances of a pregnancy.
  5. When the best quality embryos are identified, the embryologists will load the embryos into the transfer catheter and work with the doctor to perform the embryo transfer procedure. Any remaining embryos that are not transferred and appear to have the capability of making a pregnancy are frozen for later use. The embryologist is responsible for the cryopreservation of extra embryos during the IVF process.

Quality Management System in Fertility IVF Laboratory

February 8, 2014

Quality Management System in IVF Laboratory – Quality Management and Control in ART Laboratory – Quality and Risk Management in the IVF Laboratory – Air Quality Control and Management in Reproductive Laboratory – Quality management systems for in vitro fertilization clinic’s laboratory – Quality control and troubleshooting in ART Laboratory – QMS & Licensing and regulation in the ART laboratory

Several countries have in recent years introduced prescribed requirements for treatment and monitoring of outcomes, as well as a licensing or accreditation requirement for in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics and their laboratories. It is common place for Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) laboratories to be required to have a quality control system. However, more effective Total Quality Management systems are now being implemented by an increasing number of ART clinics. In India, it is now a requirement to have a quality management system in order to be accredited and to help meet customers demand for improved delivery of ART services.

The guidelines set up by the ESHRE constitute the minimal requirements for any laboratory offering assisted reproduction techniques (ART). The implementation of guidelines for good practice in IVF laboratories requires a quality management programme to be in place, integrating quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement. This should be done by the design of a quality policy and a consequent implementation of a quality system that encompasses and integrates the operative units, the processes and procedures that represent the core of ART clinics.

What is the need for Quality management Control in IVF Laboratory?

In IVF laboratories, the diversification of the applied procedures necessitates a major attention and concentration, a systematic check of the results obtained, and a more complex training programme. Extensive research is necessary before admitting new procedures to standard technique protocols which are routinely performed in IVF laboratories.

As future perspectives, the IVF laboratory is deeply involved in defining novel techniques to be admitted (i) as standard clinical protocols which are routinely performed to expand ART indications, such as freezing of oocytes and ovarian tissue and in vitro maturation of oocytes, and improving embryo implantation through a better selection of gametes, zygotes and embryos; (ii) in basic research such as the generation of embryonic stem cell lines.

All these involvements require high-laboratory standards with highly qualified personnel, as well as defined quality management systems. ESHRE guidelines for good practice in IVF laboratories, together with the European Tissue Directives, no longer represent an option, but a prerequisite, to operate and provide the best clinical outcome in a safe working

Total quality management(TQM) is an integrative philosophy of management for continuously improving the quality of services and processes. Through the years,this concept has become fundamental in Healthcare, a field in which a high standard of treatment should constantly be pursued. Quality management focus on all processes performed within fertility units and how they can be influenced and improved by TQM in order to provide patients with the best and most safe treatments and procedures available. TQM can be a useful tool to improve efficacy and efficiency, also with reference to financial and administrative aspects.

Focus on the creation of a patient-oriented best-in-class Fertility laboratory.

Focus on the creation of a patient-oriented best-in-class Fertility laboratory.

Quality Control in the IVF Laboratory

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. The three most important physical conditions in the IVF laboratory that can be controlled are the temperature, pH and osmolality of the IVF culture medium. Laboratories are required to document and monitor these physical conditions regularly as part of their ongoing QC/QA programs. Monitoring and documentation of temperatures inside incubators, refrigerators and freezers is an integral part of routine day to day QC in the IVF laboratory.

Written procedures should be present describing the various phases of IVF techniques. Rules concerning the correct handling and identification of gametes and embryo samples should be established by a system of checks and, where needed,double-checks.

Life in it's Purest Form requires Air in it's Purest Quality

Life in it’s Purest Form requires Air in it’s Purest Quality

International standard and accreditation for IVF centres  

ISO 9001 is the basic standard for ISO certification and is a requirement before other standards are implemented such as EN 17025 and 15189. IVF is a clinical enterprise that involves physicians, nurses and others whose tasks go far beyond a clinical laboratory. In fact, it is the integration of the clinical team with the laboratory that requires the most attention to ensure that the highest quality service will prevail.

ISO 9001 forms the basis for a quality management system internationally. Other standards may be sought afterwards by those that may be interested in taking their quality systems further. it is to be noted that ISO implementation can be costly, and careful attention should be made to not set too many standards as a requirement. ISO 9001 serves as an excellent worldwide standard. All IVF centres and IVF Laboratories must be encouraged to consider implementing a quality management system. Experience has shown that, when conscientiously and properly implemented, ISO 9001 can improve employee and patient satisfaction and overall quality. Newly implemented ISO 15189 may offer new and improved standards for clinical laboratories.

The purpose of accreditation, which is voluntary, is to ensure that quality management and quality assurance methods meet highly set standards of quality control. All these involvements require high-laboratory standards with highly qualified personnel, as well as defined quality management systems.

There has been increased demand for transparency pertaining to the safety aspects, effectiveness and health outcomes of ART treatments both from the general public, patients and regulators. The important components that make a laboratory great are the people, procedure, equipment and the laboratory design. Recruiting the right people is the critical step in setting up the best IVF laboratory. An IVF center is only as good as the staff it employs and there is an absolute need to ensure consistent and continuous education and training. QMS, that have been proven effective by other industries, can be used by ART clinics to meet existing requirements by monitoring and controlling the way in which services are delivered. Thus, by determining and meeting the expectations of patients and other stakeholders, implementation of QMS will also be a vital tool for setting, planning and meeting advancements through documented processes enabling continuous improvement.

To design ,built and setting up complete world class IVF center or lab is important turnkey project and you need an expert to take care of it.You need Specialist of IVF lab design like:Shivani Scientific Industries Pvt Ltd. Shivani extends comprehensive service for implementation of ISO 9001 and ISO 17025. Quality Management System provides quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement activities. ISO 9001 system helps ART centers in ensuring quality service for not only the customers but also improving performance in organizations, creating a calibration protocol for equipment’s, creating proper documentation as per national and international guidelines. The services are also extended to any of those running IVF Labs, who do have the desire and intention of improving upon themselves.

Future Of IVF

January 25, 2014

Future Of IVF in Assisted Reproductive Technology – Future of Fertility Treatment – IVF future – Economical, High Success Rate, Safer IVF Treatment –  The ambitious future of IVF Treatment –  The importance of IVF Laboratory and IVF process – Future of IVF and Genetic Testing – Bright future of IVF and ART related techniques –  21st  Century Future of In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common and most effective type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help infertile women become pregnant. In an IVF process, eggs are removed from the ovaries and fertilised with sperm in the laboratory. The fertilised egg (embryo) is later placed in the woman’s womb.

IVF process - Future of IVF and Genetic Testing

Future of Fertility Treatment – IVF future – Economical

Since it was first used in 1978, in vitro fertilization (IVF) has created more than 5 million babies. Success rates for IVF depend on a number of factors, including the reason for infertility, where you’re having the procedure done, and your age. Currently pregnancy is achieved in an average of 29.4% of all IVF cycles (higher or lower depending on the age of the woman. The percentage of cycles that resulted in live births was 22.4% on average (higher or lower depending on the age of the woman). apart from the success of the IVF treatment infertile couples know that IVF is expensive, and doesn’t always mean the birth of a baby. Hence the number of infertile couples opting for this treatment is less.

The future of IVF treatments is very good. With advances in the technology of ART, IVF treatment is going to be the first solution for intended parents. Following are the points where IVF has more good options of improving and it has already seen boost in the treatments.

1) Chromosomal Abnormalities

Many of the embryos formed during infertility treatments carry no possibility of becoming a baby because they carry lethal genetic abnormalities. Around 70% of the time, an embryo fails to form because of these abnormalities in its DNA. The pregnancy does not take place and patient has to go for another ivf cycle. There are ways, however, of improving the odds.

PreImplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Today Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) helps you distinguish which embryos have genetic or chromosomal defects before implantation. If you or your family is a carrier of genetic diseases, you can have embryos examined through PGD, and screened for genetic diseases, including Fragile X Syndrome, cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s disease, and many others.

This procedure allows you to select the healthiest embryo for implantation, increasing your chances of having a healthy baby. If your family has a history of hemophilia, for example, preimplantation genetic diagnosis reveals which embryos test positive for the disease.

Bright future of IVF and ART related techniques

Bright future of IVF and ART related techniques

The Future of IVF and Genetic Testing

A recent scientific breakthrough in preimplantation genetic diagnosis gives many couples new hope. Next generation sequencing is a game changer for couples who turn to IVF. This new technology sorts through genetic information and mutations, improving doctors’ ability to detect abnormalities and identify embryos with the highest chances of producing a viable pregnancy.

This procedure allows you to select the healthiest embryo for implantation, increasing your chances of having a healthy baby. If your family has a history of hemophilia, for example, preimplantation genetic diagnosis reveals which embryos test positive for the disease.

2)  Transfer of Embryos

Initially more than two embryos were implanted to get favourable results. With the help of blastosyst embryo transfer only healthy and viable embryos are transferred which results in pregnancy. Cryopreservation of unused embryos is efficient, since embryos without the capacity for full development are not frozen. Blastocyst transfer also allows the option of single embryo transfer. The advances in genetic screening will go far beyond getting people pregnant, however, as we better define genetic diseases and learn how to screen for a greater number of serious conditions. This is complex, both medically and ethically, but the future convergence of well-defined genomes and very effective embryo testing makes this application inevitable at some point of time.

3)  Ovarian Tissue Transplant

Ovarian tissue transplant has the potential to revolutionise fertility treatment. Ovarian Tissue Transplant followed by Successful IVF Creates Future Fertility Hope for Ovarian Cancer Survivors. A women who is facing infertility problem because of ovarian cancer treatment, now has the ray of hope to achieve pregnancy. The sample of ovarian tissue is taken from the patient’s cancer-free ovary through keyhole surgery and is then frozen.  After the patient is ready and free from her treatment, the tissue which is frozen is grafted onto the left and right sides of the front wall of her abdomen. After a few months the tissue starts working, and with a gentle dose of hormone treatment produced follicles and two single eggs.  Both were fertilized, implanted, and became viable pregnancies. These is possible because of the freezing process of ovarian tissue in the IVF laboratory. This technique is new and will be a great boon for infertile couples facing fertility issues because of cancer diagnosis.

The ambitious future of IVF Treatment

4)  Three Parents: The Twenty-First Century Future of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

Babies with three parents could soon be born through controversial new IVF treatment. The new in-vitro fertilization technique, currently in the research phase, is nearing approval in Britain and would be the first to involve genetically modified embryos. The technique is meant to enable parents to avoid passing on diseases to their offspring. To prevent the passage of mitochondrial disorders from mother to child, researchers have devised a solution. The fertility treatment, known as mitochondrial transfer, tries to replace a faulty part of a mother‘s egg with healthy material from a donor, creating a “genetically modified child” with three biological parents. The technique has proven successful in human cells in the ivf laboratory and is awaiting recognition.

It involves intervening in the fertilization process to remove faulty mitochondrial DNA, which can cause inherited conditions such as fatal heart problems, liver failure, brain disorders, blindness and muscular dystrophy. The methods are designed to help families with mitochondrial diseases – incurable conditions passed down the maternal line that affect around one in 6,500 children worldwide.

5)  Better, Faster, More Budget-Friendly IVF Treatment

NGS technology (Next generation sequencing) has its advantages over older technology such as microarray. Next generation sequencing not only hikes the chances of getting a healthy pregnancy, but does so at a lower cost, and with more details and accurate information. What makes this cutting-edge process even more appealing, besides the very real promise of taking the guesswork out of making a baby, are the super-quick results it delivers. In only 24 hours, doctors will be able to have a complete assessment of the embryo’s health.

6)  What will it take to bring down the costs of IVF?

The biggest step will be automating the IVF lab. The embryologist opens the incubator door, takes out the petri dish, does something to the embryo or the media, opens the incubator door, put the dish back, close the incubator door series of steps for every IVF case that has been used since the 1980’s. The technology-robotics, microfluidics, incubators with cameras etc, already exists. Probably new invention will keep on taking place. These will involve higher success rate in ivf treatment, low cost ivf treatment and increased amount of infertile couples opting for IVF and ART related techniques.

In all IVF treatments eggs, sperm and embryo creation is very essential. Whether it is donor egg, donor sperm or infertile couples own eggs and sperm. Handling of all these requires very hygienic conditions and prescribed temperatures and sterlisation. They are to be stored in freezer. Handling of all these requires expert training and knowledge be it either embryologist or gynaecologist.

In vitro fertilization, Infertility, Embryology

What is IVF? What is In vitro fertilization?
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: in vitro. IVF is a major treatment for infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed.IVF is an acronym for in vitro fertilization (‘in vitro‘ meaning ‘in glass’). Simply put IVF is adding a man’s sperm to his female partners eggs in the laboratory to produce embryos. In vitro fertilization is an option for many couples who cannot conceive through conventional therapies. These embryos are put back into the female partner’s uterus (womb) after 3 to 5 days of being in the incubator, hopefully they will then grow into a baby. The reasons IVF is done include – poor sperm quality and/or quantity, obstructions between the egg and sperm, ovulation problems, and sperm-egg interaction problems. These problems can prevent couples having a baby naturally, and IVF helps to solve this.

Specific conditions that might require IVF include:

  • Unexplained infertility/ failed conventional therapy
  • Genetic testing (PGD) for inheritable diseases
  • Genetic testing (PGD) for possible reasons for multiple miscarriages
  • Tubal blockage or failed tubal reversal
  • Endometriosis
  • Cervical factor
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Male factor

Embryology – What is Embryology?

Embryology is a science which is about the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage.After cleavage, the dividing cells, or morula, becomes a hollow ball, or blastula, which develops a hole or pore at one end.

Modern embryology research: Currently, embryology has become an important research area for studying the genetic control of the development process (e.g. morphogens), its link to cell signalling, its importance for the study of certain diseases and mutations and in links to stem cell research.
