This module deals solely with the laboratory aspects of Assisted Reproductive Treatment, from oocyte collection, gamete preparation and embryo culture up to and including methods of presenting results. It introduces the use of Quality Systems and risk management in human embryo culture, and the rationales for choosing various laboratory techniques and their potential complications. This Module will provide a better understanding of the complexities of the laboratory and culture technique requirements currently in use.
By the end of this course we expect that you will have:
an appreciation of the organisation needed to create a functional ART Team
an ability to understand the scientific aspects necessary in maintaining a successful ART laboratory
an understanding of the scientists perspective of ART as opposed to the clinical side alone
the ability to trouble shoot (or assist the scientists in troubleshooting) the inherent variability that can disrupt the functioning of an ART programme
