Assisted Reproductive Treatments Preserve your fertility

The modern vitrification techniques enable us to freeze the eggs of patients wanting to subsequently experience a pregnancy or patients subjected to chemotherapy treatments due to an oncology.

Our egg bank preserves oocytes in test-tubes submerged in liquid nitrogen at -196ºC.

Purpose:

  • Oocyte vitrification program. Targeted for women wanting to freeze their eggs today for a future pregnancy.
  • Storage of eggs for a surgical or chemotherapy treatment to preserve the fertility.
  • Storage of eggs by the Donor for the Oocyte Donation Program.
