GENESIS CYPRUS IVF CLINIC
Genesis Cyprus IVF Clinic
Who we are
This state-of-the-art establishment measuring 580 square meters of beneficial space is situated on the top floor (4th) of a modern newly constructed building in Limassol, Cyprus. It incorporates amongst others a concealed positively pressurised sterile area designed in the context of a sterilisation room, a scrub room, a large egg collection suite, a second theatre hosting embryo replacements and a specifically designed embryology laboratory connected to the two theatres via specially designed air- tight windows. The walls and the compartment separation units within this area are made of medical partition panels which are recommended for IVF purposes by the European Union. The floor of the sterile area is surgically approved layered by copper antistatic material whereas the roof accommodates HEPA Class B air filtration systems for ultimate sterility. Clean air circulates on a continuous basis ensuring a sterile environment. Medical gases necessary for clinical and laboratory applications as well as for the requirements of the patient recovery rooms are supplied through an electronically operating gas bank system situated outside the premises.
Three separate laboratories distant to the above area comprise the andrology and the two pre-implantation genetic laboratories. All three have been designed to operate within the same concept of optimal sterility and ergonomy as the rest of the concealed positively.
The first genetic lab accommodates the sequencer (New Generation Sequencing – NGS) and the laver system necessary to perform NGS & aCGH respectively whilst the second is used for optimising and subsequently processing a reaction for identifying monogenic (single-gene) disorders using real time fluorescence PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction).
Genesis is a dedicated fertility institution and the first establishment to have acquired European Union tissue directive clearance in Cyprus, Greece, the Eastern and Central European Union countries. This is to say that Genesis complies with all prerequisites set by the guidelines of the European Union in relation to standards of quality and safety for the donation, procurement, testing, processing, preservation, storage and distribution of human tissues and cells. Genesis has been in this respect granted license to undertaking any type of clinical and/or laboratory fertility intervention available in human to date.
The unprecedented construction and mechanical engineering of the unit ensures continuous control of any potential emission of contaminants within the positively pressurized “clean” area. It has been reported that such working environments maximize yields and optimize success rates. In this context, Genesis has installed Ulpa and H-14 filtration systems in all areas associated with surgical or laboratory interventions.
Genesis has the back ground knowledge and expertise to offer patients any of the currently available fertility treatments to date. It has the capacity to undertake «In-House» all advanced laboratory techniques in relation to pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Personnel at this unit have performed more than tens of thousands embryo biopsies and subsequent diagnoses.
Genesis provides individualized care and continuous support to all patients.
Genesis is one of very few private fertility clinics to pursue «in house» advanced research programs in affiliation with accredited university research groups worldwide. Furthermore personnel at Genesis clinic participate at conferences relating to assisted human reproduction on frequent occasions throughout the year. This is consistent with Genesis’ policy for continuous improvement.
