Hormonal and Immunological Testing

Modern Assisted Reproduction Units provide comprehensive services to the people putting their trust in it. It is important that have indegrated services and direct collaboration of a large group of specialists, such as reproductive gynaecologists, clinical embryologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, psychologists etc. Modern units must select every effort based on both clinical and ultrasound findings and laboratory analyses.

Laboratory analyses are the mainstay of monitoring the development of assisted reproduction attempts. From initial hormonal and immunological testing up to the pregnancy confirmation, laboratory tests must be direct, timely and accurate. To achieve this, the development of a modern immunological and hormonal laboratory in a modern Assisted Reproduction Unit is important.

Embryolab realised this need very quickly and incorporated it in the facilities of a modern Hormonology and Immunology laboratory to cover effectively these needs. They can be summarised into two main categories:
• Diagnostic approach: the valid identification of factors, both in the woman and the man, which hinder the success of an attempt, leading to immediate and effective treatment.
• Clinical monitoring: Immediate hormonal monitoring is particularly important for proper direction and progress of the attempt.

Every attempt is unique and deserves respect and appropriate treatment, providing immediate results that will lead to important decisions. Exploring the causes and monitoring the evolution of an attempt are important tools that contribute significantly to achieving a successful outcome and having a child!


• Embryolab is one of the few assisted reproduction units with a Hormonology and Immunology Laboratory within the Unit.
• The accuracy of the hormonal tests is controlled through successful participation in the National External Quality Assurance Scheme.
• It possesses the most up-to-date equipment with complete traceability
