Rockville, MD – Frozen Egg Bank Network has announced plans to put more emphasis on quality in the egg freezing industry. A large gap in the quality of oocyte cryopreservation has been a matter of great concern for quite some time now. The launch of the network, which brings together some of the premier and most respected fertility clinics in the US and Canada, seeks to address these concerns in order to ensure strict industry criteria are being met.
Donor Egg Bank USA, which established http://www.frozeneggbanknetwork.com/, has significant experience in building technology that aids in both the freezing and thawing of eggs. According to the CEO of Donor Egg Bank USA – Heidi Hayes – “We have noticed much debate in the media regarding if women should or should not freeze their eggs. What we have not seen receiving the same level of scrutiny is the great variability of technological quality used in these processes. Frozen Egg Bank Network hopes to address concerns about this and other aspects of the process in order to ensure consistent quality for women electing to freeze their eggs.”
Heidi Hayes of https://donoreggbankusa.com/ noted that many doctors are willing to freeze a woman’s eggs, yet few are capable of producing the desired end result due to lack of practice in thawing eggs. To ensure complete adherence to quality, Frozen Egg Bank Network works closely with clinics that have solid experience and a record of freezing as well as thawing eggs successfully. To ensure that no clinic in its network deviates from this, the network has created a program it calls ‘Seal of Quality Assurance.’ The program has brought 20 top-tier clinics from different parts of the country together in order to create and maintain high quality standards for the industry.
Donor Egg Bank USA has trained more than 60 professional embryologists who have gone on to freeze and thaw over 30,000 donor eggs. More importantly, the embryologists have been responsible for a success rate of over 50% for patients attempting clinical pregnancy, for each embryo transfer. The technology for freezing eggs has improved significantly, thus prompting the American Society for Reproductive Medicine to declare the whole procedure non-experimental. Frozen Egg Bank Network has placed strict demands on all embryologists to achieve and maintain an egg survival rate of 80 percent or more. Furthermore, all clinics that participate in this program must go through a recertification process four times each year. In 2009, the number of women who were freezing their eggs in the US was 500. In 2014, that number has grown to more than 6,000, prompting the need for stricter quality controls. Frozen Egg Bank Network hopes to continue assisting donor clinics and embryologists with meeting these top standards, ensuring a higher success rate from the combined clinics.
