Concert for embryos

Antonio Orozco gave a private live concert to the very fortunate 380 embryos that were in process of development, at the time, at our in vitro fertilization laboratory. I would like to share this video with all of you because the experience has been exciting! His first song was called “I’m made of tiny...

The price of an IVF

The results of a centre only have value if they audited by health authorities. According to the study “The price of having a baby by assisted reproduction”, based on results audited by health authorities and budgets of different clinics, Institut Marquès is the best positioned.

When our center’s biologists come into the In Vitro Fertilization lab every morning they are fascinated by every embryo’s video. These images are so shocking that we have...

Resting After Embryo Transfer

This week we’re presenting a beautiful study in London, which has been awarded for being the Best Oral Presentation in the Congress and we would like to thank all colleagues that have taken part in it.
