Frequently Asked Questions
What makes the TRIO lab different from other labs?
Our training, expertise, experience and technology. In addition, TRIO’s lab consistently achieves pregnancy rates that are higher than the Canadian average.
How do I know my frozen eggs and embryos will be safe in the lab?
TRIO is very serious about safety and security. Our lab is equipped with backup power, back up tanks, and a sophisticated alarm system for all of our incubators and storage tanks. Monitoring is in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If any parameters change, we are notified immediately.
Will I have access to the TRIO lab even though I am monitoring at one of your satellites clinics?
Yes. While your day-to-day monitoring takes place at a satellite clinic, your IVF procedure, and all of the associated lab procedures will take place at TRIO’s downtown clinic, where our lab is located.
How do I know if I need the additional technologies above and beyond standard IVF?
You and your doctor will discuss your specific diagnosis and treatment plan, and your doctor will recommend which lab technologies will give you the best chances for success.
“We will never forget that day we had our embryo transfer! At times throughout our journey it was difficult to stay positive, but we were always hopeful we would get to send a success story like this to TRIO. After years of wanting to welcome a baby into our family, our dream came true. 💜 Many thanks to all the TRIO staff, especially Dr. Chang (our RE), Dr. Gunn (who performed my egg retrieval), Edem in the OR, and Dr. Meriano and his staff in the lab. Thank you for helping us expand our family! Miracles really do happen”
