Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Laboratory

The Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania features state-of-the-art equipment and cutting edge technology that positions Penn Fertility Care at the forefront of individualized patient care.  By utilizing controlled microenvironment incubation, non-invasive embryo culture protocols and continuous time-lapse embryo surveillance technology, the ART laboratory provides effective fertility treatment for patients pursuing family building options. 

The overall goal of the ART laboratory is to support the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) program and provide patients seeking assisted reproductive treatment with safe, effective, and successful outcomes. Briefly, the process of IVF consists of oocyte retrieval (or thawing), insemination of oocyte(s) with sperm and transferring an embryo or embryos into the uterus.
