ivfOPEN

Better Security Through Collaboration, Efficiency, and Consistency

The fertility industry is rapidly expanding. There is an urgent need for industry-wide data-sharing to ensure the safety, privacy, and integrity of samples and processes, and to reduce misidentification of IVF specimens to zero.

ivfOPEN aims to modernize the IVF ecosystem and increase patient awareness and access to the most modern practices in IVF and genetic testing.

The Time Is NOW

The fertility industry continues to expand rapidly, creating an urgent need to devise, and implement, an industry-wide standard to ensure the absolute security, confidence, safety, and integrity of each fertility patient, sample, embryologist, process, and system, while maintaining the privacy of each patient. In particular, the need to reduce the incidence of misidentification of IVF specimens to zero requires a solution: we call it ivfOPEN.

Our solution is proactive instead of reactive, as we anticipate a fertility treatment explosion, as more equitable access to care is created, more women freeze their eggs for fertility preservation, more same gender couples create families, and more people use IVF to avoid passing on genetic diseases.

ivfOPEN brings together the best in the industry to modernize the in vitro fertilization ecosystem, and increase patient awareness of the most modern practices around identifying and tracking eggs, sperm, embryos – all  human tissue – created during the in vitro fertilization and genetic testing process.

A better fertility process

Our goal is to establish an independent, non-profit shared source of truth regarding fertility identity. 

Tissue Control

The cornerstone of quality control and care standardization.

Interoperability

Support the interconnected global market, within the lab, between vendors, and among clinics & donor banks.

Support Innovation

Reliable identity data at scale will help drive both commercial and clinical innovation.

Patient Advocacy & Education

We want to help patients fully understand the importance of protecting their most precious cells to reduce the risk of misidentification.
