Texas Fertility Center Responds to Dateline Story on IVF Lab Mix-Up
Date:1/10/2013

lates to approximately 1.5 million IVF cycles in the past decade alone. The fact that mistakes such as this one are such rare events serves as testimony to the exacting standards and safeguards that reputable IVF program have put in place.

The Texas Fertility Center laboratory policies and procedures are regularly documented, internally scrutinized and externally inspected by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), as well as the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Our fertility laboratory maintains the highest quality, and several of our embryologists actually serve as CAP inspectors – inspecting other laboratories around the country,” adds Dr. Silverberg.

Texas Fertility Center details on its website an exhaustive process for protecting individuals and couples from human error during embryo transfer. Read more about Texas Fertility Center and Austin IVF lab protocols and long-standing safeguards here.

For example, only one patient's gametes (embryos, egg or sperm) can be in each lab area at a time. Incubators are labeled by patient name and each patient’s identity is confirmed before and after the gametes are removed or returned to the incubator.

“We hope that television viewers who saw the Dateline piece and are currently undergoing fertility treatment understand the extreme safeguards in place at accredited fertility labs,” says Tom Turner, Chief Embryologist with Texas Fertility Center’s partner lab, Austin IVF. “Proper embryo identification and error prevention protocols, coupled with a rigorous CAP management and accountability system should reassure patients that their embryos are in capable hands during oocyte (egg) retrieval and transfer.”
