Fertility Center of California (FCC) is certified by Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as being licensed by California Department for Public Health (CDPH). With over 35 years experience, the FCC laboratory supervisors and managers practice and teach proven methods for safely preparing sperm for IUIs.
All lab technicians undergo extensive training and participate in bi-annual proficiency testing to ensure all lab personnel are performing lab tasks at the high standard FCC demands.
Lab technicians only process one sample at a time in a confined location. Each piece of equipment the sperm sample comes into contact with is labeled with the patient name before contact is made. Each step of the sperm preparation process is carefully followed, making sure to always determine each tool the lab tech is using is designated for the sperm wash patient.
Technologists are also taught to be on guard 100% of the time for abnormalities in the lab environment. This constant diligence that has allowed FCC to be free from sperm processing errors for over 35 years.
