Through our family of companies, Fairfax Diagnostics can help provide a full range of IVF and PGT-related services. A high-quality embryo biopsy will result in highly accurate and reproducible PGT results. Emphasis is thus placed on skillful embryology when performing the biopsy to yield high quality, intact cells.
The Genetics & IVF Institute, founded by Dr. Joseph D. Schulman in 1984 in Fairfax, Virginia, is the first clinical and laboratory facility designed from inception to provide fully integrated, comprehensive outpatient services in the areas of human genetics and infertility. In addition to having one of the largest fertility programs in the United States, GIVF is a leader in in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), medical genetics, and prenatal diagnosis. The Institute has developed one of the premier cryopreservation programs in the world.
Fairfax Cryobank was originally organized in 1986 to provide patients at the Genetics & IVF Institute with anonymous frozen donor semen that had a higher standard of genetic and infectious donor screening and sperm quality than could be obtained elsewhere. Physicians that visited the Institute and observed the results of the frozen donor specimens began to request the use of Fairfax Cryobank donor specimens in their own infertility practices. Although it was not the original intent to provide specimens outside of the Institute, due to continued requests by physicians and patients Fairfax Cryobank now provides donor semen to physicians and university medical centers in all 50 states and many foreign countries. Upon request from patients, physicians, and numerous medical facilities, the Cryobank also began providing semen freezing and storage for patients desiring to have their specimens cryopreserved for future use.
Fairfax EggBank was created out of the Genetics & IVF Institute fresh donor egg program, which began in 1988. As egg vitrification (freezing) proved to be a viable and successful alternative to fresh donor eggs, Fairfax EggBank was founded to accommodate the need for quality frozen donor eggs. Today, Fairfax EggBank has one of the largest repositories of frozen donor eggs in the United States, and is the trusted choice for hundreds of clinics worldwide. Our commitment to donor quality and service excellence makes us a premier solution for donor egg recipients. Fairfax EggBank and our recipients, benefit from our in-house experts with over 30 years of experience in safe and successful reproductive tissue banking.
