Our New Lab at TechInSA
The Flindersfertility Laboratory was re-located from Flinders Medical Centre (“FMC”) to TechInSA (formerly BioSA) the state-of the-art bio-sciences hub at Thebarton, in November, 2016.
This relocation project has been underway since June 2016, and the new premises are now home to one of the most advanced embryology laboratories in Australia, constructed to meet the latest international quality and performance standards. We are confident that the custom-made facilities will allow us to offer a higher level of patient service, improve laboratory efficiency and provide one of the safest, most stable and secure fertility facilities in Australia for the storage of our patients’ reproductive materials.
Our new central location – just fourteen kilometres from FMC and three kilometres from the new Royal Adelaide Hospital will provide greater patient amenity, more convenient access, and free parking.
Our committed and professional laboratory staff will also make the move, so you will see the same friendly faces and enjoy the same high levels of care in more comfortable surroundings. Co-location with our strategic Pre-implantation Genetic Screening partner, Reproductive Health Sciences (RHS) will enable close and efficient collaboration, further speeding your journey to parenthood.
What does this mean for you?
Storage of reproductive material
Reproductive material (sperm, eggs and/or embryos) stored at FMC will move with us to a highly secure state-of-the-art storage facility. The welfare of your gametes will be ensured by Flinders Fertility’s engagement of a specialised medical transport company to manage the move. Flinders Fertility will bear the transport costs.
On arrival, they will be stored in one of the most stable and secure fertility facilities in Australia, supported by on-site fail safe power systems including a whole-of-building uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and back-up generator, as well as Flinders Fertility specific UPS’s to maintain optimum storage and incubation conditions.
From November 21, all embryo transfers (fresh and frozen) will be performed at our TechInSA facility and not FMC. While some patients may have a little further to travel, everyone will enjoy free and ample car parking and easier access.
Egg pick-ups will still be performed at Level 4, South Wing, FMC.
There are 2 options for Semen collection. Collection can be done by you at home, then you can personally deliver the sample to our new Lab (our preferred method), or collection can be performed at our new Lab at TechInSA.
Oncology patients will be able to have their semen delivered to our new Lab at TechInSA.
It is not only business as usual at Flindersfertility, but the new Laboratory at TechInSA shows our dedication to continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence for the benefit of our patients. We look forward to welcoming you to our new Laboratory facilities, and, in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us on 131 IVF (131 483) if you would like more information or would like to arrange a preview visit.
