The term ‘Shoebox IVF’ relates to the size of the laboratory used in this new IVF treatment.
In standard IVF treatment, a Conventional Culture System (CCS) is used, meaning that the incubators used for embryo development are ‘open’. This traditional incubation system relies on expensive technology to ensure the gas environment in the laboratory is correct.
By contrast, the ‘Shoebox IVF’ method uses a Simplified Culture System (CCS). This means that embryo development happens in a ‘closed’ incubator system the size of a small shoebox.
Removing the need for the expensive CCS is one of the reasons why abc ivf are able to offer patients the most affordable IVF treatment in the UK.
All other aspects of fertility treatment are kept as per normal laboratory practice and carried out at the highest of standards.
It is now the case that 1 in 6 couples are experiencing trouble conceiving, and our aim is to make IVF treatment accessible for as many of these people as possible.
