he Shady Grove Fertility state-of-the-art embryology, andrology, and endocrine laboratories have reached national and international distinction for offering highly sophisticated laboratory procedures.
Our five embryology, andrology, and endocrine labs in Rockville, MD, Chesterbrook, PA, Towson, PA, Atlanta, GA and Fairfax, VA are equipped with the very latest technology and are accredited by the Joint Commission. They are operated under the leadership of Michael J. Tucker, Ph.D., who holds the distinguished High-complexity Clinical Laboratory Director (HCLD) certification. This certification ensures his clinical laboratory training, experience, and depth of knowledge, along with continuing education, ensure the SGF labs incorporate the very latest technology.
Our embryology labs are also accredited by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART), an organization whose mission it is to establish and maintain standards for assisted reproductive technologies (ART) to ensure patients receive the highest possible level of care. SART clinics meet the highest standards for quality, safety, and patient care. Shady Grove Fertility reports their birth outcome data to SART on an annual basis.
Because accurate and reliable lab results can significantly impact patient outcomes, Shady Grove Fertility invests tremendous resources to ensure we maintain these accreditations.
