Innovative techniques

Laboratory technologies and clinical protocols have made important strides ahead over the past decade, leading to ever increasing pregnancy and take home baby rates. We pride ourselves at CFA for contributing to many of these advances, both through our own research programmes, and the rapid application of all new techniques.


Clinical exellence

Our staff, under the direction of Professor Brian Dale, an internationally renowned reproductive scientist from England, are highly qualified specialists.
