We are one of the few centers in the Middle East & North Africa who are qualified to be certified for the ISO 9001-2000 Certificate as we have made an accurate approach in implementing the effectiveness of quality management system in order to meet our patients’ requirements, satisfaction and absolute privacy. As a result, we are keen on conducting continuous internal audits at planned intervals in order to analyze and discuss our documented data and statistical studies.
Regular and professional calibrations for all our equipments are done, including weekly monitoring and calibration for all our Tri-gas incubators. These incubators are known to have almost the same environment as the female uterus, where the concentration of O2 is 5%, N2 is 89% and CO2 is 6%, giving a good environment for the embryos to reach the Blastocyst stage (day 5-6 transfer) smoothly thus significantly improving the pregnancy rates because of better embryo quality and endometrial receptivity. We are proud to be one of the few centers in the Middle East & North Africa to have those Tri-gas incubators.
As for our staff, we have highly qualified gynecologists, andrologists and embryologists who have had their training at one of the most reputable centers in the United Kingdom and the United States who continuously and regularly attend updated international conferences. We are also in contact with specialized fertility centers world wide for any information needed, achievements and technical support.
That is why SUNRISE FERTILITY CENTER has one of the best fertilization, cleavage and pregnancy rates and is constantly competing with international standards to make the SUN RISE to those whom infertility has darkened their lives.
What makes us unique
What also makes us one of the unique centers in the region is that we have the RI Saturn Laser machine by which we do assisted hatching to improve pregnancy rates as well as embryo biopsies and pregenetic diagnosis (PGD) for patients who experience repeated failure and recurrent miscarriages due to genetic causes.
Strict infection control procedures and monitoring are done monthly and documented. We also have Coda Filters with triple filtering systems for micro-organisms, air particles and odour which gives 99.9% purified air in our laboratories and theatres.
Sunrise IVF Center is the first certified centre in Egypt and North Africa to have an embryoscope unit, serving many patients from the whole area. With this ground-breaking technology, science fiction has now become reality in medicine.
It differs from normal IVF procedures in that when using a normal incubator, fertility specialists needed to extract the embryo from its test tube every 18 hours, starting from the first day, to monitor progress, in itself a risky and delicate procedure. Now, with the Unisense Fertilitech time-lapse embryoscope it is possible to track the development of the embryo from the time of conception. The unit has six chambers, each holding twelve embryos. Each embryo has its own video camera to monitor and record the cell division over a five day period, meaning that there is no need to remove it from its stable environment.
When playing back the videos after five days it can be seen which embryos have maintained the best cell division and exclude the abnormal or weaker ones. The embryoscope unit has built in technology to assess this. The embryo can then be transplanted secure in the knowledge that it stands a very good chance of resulting in a successful pregnancy. The process has helped tremendously in avoiding repeated miscarriages, a cause of great stress and disappointment to many couples in the past. Of course, it is also wonderful for parents to have a record of the very beginning of their child’s life, from the first millisecond up to when the cell has multiplied into 100 cells.
The embryoscope is extremely reliable with 24 /7 monitoring via a dedicated ADSL link with the headquarters of Unisense Fertilitech in Denmark. Should they see any irregularity in the unit they alert Sunrise IVF Center immediately.
Many couples have tried IVF on many occasions, but without success. This can be a financial drain as well as emotionally tough for them. Now with the embryoscope their chances of delivering a healthy baby are achievable. It is wonderful not only for the parents, but also the medical team that help make it possible.
