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 scrab room, a large egg collection suite, a second theater hosting embryo replacements and a specifically designed embryology laboratory connected to the two theaters 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.
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.
The Genesis clinic has its own accredited sperm-bank
with more than 200 donor candidates with a diversity of ethnic backgrounds and 4000 semen specimens available for donation. The Genesis Sperm Cryo-bank is managed by qualified and dedicated personnel and will be launched for the general population within 2010. The sperm bank provides samples which allow for a comprehensive choice at a cheaper cost in comparison to alternative facilities worldwide.
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 50.000 pre-implantation embryo biopsies and subsequent diagnoses. This subjects Genesis clinic to possibly the most experienced centre with regards to pre-implantation genetic analysis using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) techniques worldwide.
Genesis provides individualized and supporting care to its patients offering consultations to patient-couples free of charge.
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.
