The World Egg Bank expands its growing list of verified fertility clinics by adding Queensland Fertility Group’s St Andrew’s Place clinic and Queensland Fertility Group’s Toowoomba clinic, both in Australia.
The World Egg Bank (TWEB) announces the addition of Queensland Fertility Group’s St Andrew’s Place clinic in Brisbane and Queensland Fertility Group’s Toowoomba clinic to a list of over 100 verified clinics. A clinic becomes verified once a TWEB embryologist assists a clinic laboratory in the first warming of a shipped ova. Controlling the process of thawing a shipped egg is critical to the delivery and use of the ova in a donor egg recipient.
Brian LoManto, TWEB Laboratory Manager, traveled overseas to Queensland, Australia in late April to verify two clinics operated by Queensland Fertility Group (QFG). LoManto is proud to report that the verification process went smoothly with both clinics.
“Both clinics have exceptional teams of embryologists that are well trained and hard working. The training went seamlessly and I am confident these clinics will be successful in helping to create families in this region of Australia,” said Brian LoManto.
While there, LoManto met with Jacqui Irving, QFG Scientific Director, who is a leading fertility scientist in New Zealand and Australia. Irving gave LoManto a tour of their clinics and laboratories. They discussed laboratory protocols, the special conditions for donation in Australia, and recommendations for some sights to see during the visit.
As the oldest and most reputable egg bank, TWEB sets high industry standards for egg quality and in cultivating close relationships with egg donors and recipients worldwide. TWEB’s singular focus is on egg freezing and operate a state of the art retrieval facility in Phoenix, Arizona. This has shown to further improve egg quality by providing consistent and better controlled monitoring, procedures, and environment. TWEB’s growing donor roster includes over 400 egg donors and currently holds thousands of eggs available for immediate shipment.
