INDIA’S FIRST HOME GROWN ELECTRONIC WITNESSING SYSTEM LAUNCHED
AT OASIS FERTILITY ON THE OCCASION OF WORLD IVF DAY
Recently, an awful news shocked the medical fraternity and thepatients all over the globe. A US couple of Asian descent accused a California fertility clinic of an IVFmix up, leading them to have ‘wrong children’. They filed a lawsuit against the fertility clinic whenthey gave birth to two boys of Non-Asian traits. They also claimed that the DNA tests confirmed thatthe children were not related to the couple.
This kind of terrible mishap though rare, but may happen once in a blue moon, which can shatter thefaith of the patients on medical sciences and destroy the reputation of a fertility clinic. We cannot accept this mishap when the solution to this problem is already there, and a fertility clinic did not care to embrace this technology for zeroing the chances of any mix-up.
When you start your treatment at Oasis Fertility, you can be reassured that we take adequate care of your oocytes, embryos and sperm. We are now equipped with a state-of-the-art Electronic Witnessing System (EWS) in our laboratory, designed to further safeguard the transparency and ensure that the process is undertaken without any human errors. This technology is India’s first home grown technology brought to us by ARTis Witness a pioneer in web based fertility treatment software with concept of Make in India.”
Electronic Witnessing System is a 'track and trace' system covering every single stage of the treatment process. This system improves traceability and quality control, while reducing laboratory- based risk. It tracks samples at predefined procedural steps in IVF laboratories to prevent mix-ups and provide an automated solution for mandatory double witnessing. This is achieved through assigning unique IDs and personal codes for all the samples. These codes, tagged to the samples, enable easy detection signals, identification, tracking and recording at every step. Only once the identity is confirmed through EWS, the Embryologist will proceed with insemination. In an unlikely event of sample mismatch, the system will alert the Embryologist preventing potential errors. The
unique ID is automatically checked against the tagged embryo prior to the transfer. “
