The success of any fertility treatment cycle hinges on the standards of the IVF lab. Dr. Batzofin is proud of the achievements of his high-performing IVF lab, under the direction of John Scodras, BSc, MSc, PhD. He openly shares his methodology for protocols and lab procedures with colleagues interested in the latest advances in the IVF lab.
