Infertility Management Series: Basic Laboratory Procedure in ART

The progress in assisted reproductive technique (ART) has involved putting a new technology in constant evolution at the service of the population. This implies the idea of being able to recover it when desired, not being necessarily, so much less when it is directly linked to age. For these reasons, it seems that the tendency is not to decrease, but quite the opposite. This implies an enormous effort at the clinical level, due to the difficulties involved in the diagnosis and the treatment of the reproductive disorders of each member of the couple; and at the technological level, in the search for progress that provides solutions for the majority of infertile couples. The purpose of this book “Infertility Management Series Basic Laboratory Procedure in ART” is to provide a reliable and updated version of the techniques performed in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) unit and to give an idea of the state-of-the art technologies. Another important point to consider is the design, set-up, and staff that forms the IVF unit, as ultimately it will impact also in the consecution of the clinical objectives. From the most basic techniques, as the conventional in vitro fertilization or the embryo transfer, to the most complex as the genetic diagnosis, the magnetic cell sorting of sperm cells or the use of stem cells to develop into gametes, all have the same importance for the couple whose problem needs solution. This book aims to provide an overview of all the procedures being offered in ART and help to improve the practice of the professionals of the field.
