Group courses are designed both for experienced embryologists who wish to improve their results and for young embryologists who are starting out in IVF techniques and also for companies related to the Assisted Reproduction sector.

At Embryotools’ facilities, we have the necessary equipment and teaching staff to ensure that the training is as individualized as possible, with one teacher and one workstation for every two students. We also have an unlimited number of samples available for the practical sessions.

The aim of the training is to go through the processes involved in IVF cycles focusing on the main techniques, emphasizing the important theoretical aspects and doing intensive hands- on practice to become an excellent clinical embryologist.

We offer training in:

  • Quality control: understand the fundamental principles of quality control, set up, management and workflow organization in an IVF laboratory.  Improve results, gain consistency and analyze the stability of the culture system in the laboratory.
  • IVF techniques: practical training in all the techniques used in an IVF laboratory. Updating knowledge of routine techniques and discovering how to improve results with just a few important tips and tricks.
  • ICSI: based on different types of oocyte injection, sperm capture and immobilization, oocyte rotation, IMSI and PICSI.
  • Cryopreservation of oocytes, embryos and blastocysts: The course will focus on practical and intensive lessons on vitrification, warming and assisted hatching techniques, providing tips and tricks to achieve consistent results.
