Laboratory Primary Focus is Fertility
Our laboratory’s primary focus is fertility and offers a broad range of tests including reproductive endocrine testing, semen analyses, tests of sperm function, serology, tumor markers, immune testing and metabolic markers. We provide laboratory services 365 days of the year, and the results of most tests are reported on the same day as the samples are received.
In 2003, our new IVF laboratory was constructed in our center for reproductive medicine. The state of the art laboratory suite was carefully designed and built to provide an optimal environment for extended embryo growth and development. RTL provides all IVF laboratory services including ICSI, assisted hatching, embryo cryopreservation, and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
RTL provides tissue banking services for patients of all referring physicians including the cryopreservation and processing of semen and sperm samples procured by testicular/epididymal aspiration or testicular biopsy. The immediate adjacency of the IVF laboratory and the surgery center facilitates examination and processing of surgically recovered sperm samples.
Through established links and contracts with some of the nation’s largest reference laboratories, clinical testing for any medical specialty can be performed through our laboratory. In addition, RTL typically out-sources sub-specialty tests which may impact reproductive efficiency including genetic, microbiological, and DNA testing.
RTL offers one-stop shopping for all laboratory services requested by its extensive physician clientele.
