LIVE IVF LABORATORY

A live IVF laboratory aroused a great interest during our previous Festival. Couples waited in line to see an egg, sperm and embryo under the microscope, what cell cleansing looks like, how sperm swim… Embryologists from the Serbian Embryologists Association had their hands full for two days. We owe special gratitude to them who dedicatedly were explaining to us how the entire process of creating a new life under the microscope looks like.

So, a scientist who connects the sperm and the egg cell and helps the obtained embryos to grow in a controlled environment is an embryologist. Access to the laboratory or to an embryologist during the IVF procedure, in most clinics, is strictly limited. Although behind the scenes, embryologists make up a large part of the IVF journey. That is why we are once again giving them a special place at our Third Festival – their and your corner – Live IVF Laboratory.

You will be able to see what is happening behind the scenes – what the process of  reproductive cells fertilization looks like, what an embryologist does, what he or she uses, what such a delicate process as creating a new life looks like.

You will look through a microscope; you will see media, test tubes, pipettes, a Petri dish and everything that takes part in the creation of a new life. Also, the embryologists will explain the entire process of fertilization.

It is true that what we can’t see and touch is always interesting and incomprehensible to us! Scientists say that the egg is the largest cell in the human body, that sperm move very clumsily and funny and hit their heads, so let’s check it together in our Live IVF Laboratory.

Each egg, sperm and their combination are different. This means that each IVF attempt uses different reproductive cells and that each attempt is a different experience.

The aim of our Live IVF Laboratory is to bring the process of in vitro fertilization closer to all people; it is not about artificial fertilization at all, since there is nothing artificial about it. So come take a peek!

It is recommended to wear a protective mask at the event, all in order to protect all visitors from the COVID-19 virus.
