In recent years there have been many assisted reproduction centers low cost or "low cost". However, this is antónimo quality and commitment to patients. Hence the importance of carrying out such an important center with high demands to prime the main objective process: give birth to a healthy child.

The crisis affecting us for years has made cuts occur at all levels. However, in the case of health can have serious repercussions. In the field of assisted reproduction they have gone appearing centers "low cost" which, as its name suggests, have lower prices but, logically, affects the quality of care.The common goal of patients and professional experts is to achieve the birth of a healthy child. And for that, work as safely and reliably be performed.


Quality and commitment in assisted reproduction

To meet this commitment to quality a team of qualified people with total dedication is needed and have the appropriate means to minimize risks. This is only possible by providing a few laboratories with the best technology and investing in continuous staff training.It's been more than three decades since the first child born by IVF and today we are able to solve infertility problems who were then totally unthinkable. At this time we have managed to put reproductive medicine at the forefront of medicine and not only in our country but internationally, both for the quality of care as our results.It is true that many of the investments are neither will be profitable from the economic point of view but allow processes with greater security and accuracy. This, after all, is the common goal of both specialists and patients.Embryology laboratory should not skimp on any investment that involves a security guarantee.


Previous reproductive studies in men and women

So important is the study of women as male, so that in an assisted reproduction should be a andrólogo. This will assess the male factor and treat the andrological problems before the couple undergo any assisted reproductive treatment. Similarly, a center of quality should have a psychological cabinet that can provide help and support to patients, because the emotional charge involving infertility problems and treatments, is not small and the help of an expert is necessary.


Good service requirements for assisted reproduction

There are several essential tasks to ensure good service assisted reproduction. This work is minimized with a good team that has the best means, always complying with European standards for working with maximum security while minimizing risks:- Doubling the aparataje- Work in pairs to have dual control processes- Working weekends and holidays- Attend conferences and training courses- Perform audits and external quality controls- Have the right number of staff- Have safety and control systems 24 hours storage systems frozen embryos and gametes- Have comprehensive controls and records environmental conditions of temperature, humidity and air quality in laboratories, quality medical gases in the culture media and the embriotestado consumables.- Professionalism and expertise of embryologists, who know that each step in each process has a time marked and, beyond them, it would be goodAll this deployment of resources allows us not only to devote to each patient the time needed to make a good diagnosis and therefore indicate proper treatment, but offer complementary techniques that will improve the chances of having a healthy child home.The level of demand in each process must be imposed by the center itself and all staff should be aware of the importance and relevance that it has.


Difference between centers of assisted reproduction quality and low cost

The big difference from a center of quality with a low cost begins on the philosophy of the company. A quality center will invest in having the best people, the best facilities and the best resources for their patients achieve the dream of parenthood. This can never be compared to another where profitability in the short term and policy work is the owner issued by the same capital risk company.Investment in security is expensive and is proportional to the cost of the cycle.The end we seek, both professionals and prospective parents, is the birth of a healthy child and cuts of the crisis have no place in this project.
