Our Reproductive Medicine Laboratory:
Assisted reproductive technology makes the in vitro environment for human embryos as close as possible to the conditions inside the fallopian tubes and the uterus. In our embryology laboratory, we achieve this constant womb-like environment for embryos by using the most innovative technology and incubation equipment available.
Our first embryology laboratory was built in 1999 at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Northwest Portland, using the expertise of engineers who design clean-room facilities for Intel. Over the past 16 years there have been many advancements in technology and the engineering used to develop clean rooms.
In December 2015, we completed the development of our new state-of-the-art facility and carefully integrated the advanced technology into our new lab design. We began our first clinical cases in January 2016 and our embryos are loving their new first home.
The Reproductive Medicine Laboratory is located on the second floor of Oregon Reproductive Medicine’s downtown Portland location, adjacent to our two procedure rooms where egg retrievals and embryo transfers are performed.
