Advanced technology

RI Witness

We prioritise the safety and confidence of our patients throughout their fertility journey. We are proud to be the first fertility clinic in South Australia to implement the revolutionary radio frequency ID (RFID) technology known as RI Witness.

Our state-of-the-art lab in Adelaide is equipped with the latest technology, demonstrating our commitment to providing the highest quality care. 

With RI Witness, we have taken significant steps to ensure that samples used during the IVF process remain secure and free from any mix-ups. This ground-breaking technology utilises radio frequency tags that are attached to all dishes and tubes where samples are stored. Throughout the laboratory workflow, RI Witness constantly monitors the unique IDs of these samples as they are transferred from one location to another.

One of the key features of RI Witness is its ability to sound alarms if samples from different patients are inadvertently brought into the same work area within the laboratory. This immediate notification prevents any potential mistakes and allows our highly skilled team to halt any procedure if necessary. The comprehensive safeguards provided by RI Witness help to maintain the integrity and accuracy of your treatment, providing you with added confidence and peace of mind.

By implementing this advanced technology, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of safety and quality in every aspect of your fertility treatment. At our Family Fertility Clinic, your well-being is our utmost priority, and we continuously invest in innovative solutions like RI Witness to ensure the highest level of care for our patients.

Life Whisperer

To further enhance our services, we have partnered with Life Whisperer, harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence to assist in selecting the most viable embryos for transfer. 

Harnessing the power of cloud computing and artificial intelligence, Life Whisperer revolutionises the field of embryo assessment, offering a transformative approach to improving pregnancy rates. The wealth of knowledge contained within the AI system provides a valuable resource to enhance the accuracy and precision of embryo selection, ultimately increasing the chances of successful fertility outcomes.

Life Whisperer supports our skilled embryologists in identifying and selecting the most viable embryo for transfer and/or cryopreservation. It is a powerful tool that has the ability to identify morphological features and patterns within an embryo that are crucial indicators of its health, often beyond what the human eye can perceive.

During your treatment, our experienced embryologist will independently grade your day 5 embryos and capture detailed photos of each one. These photos are then uploaded to the Life Whisperer system. Within just a few minutes, the system generates a score that reflects the viability of each embryo based on its unique characteristics.

The use of Life Whisperer is particularly valuable for our embryologists when making decisions about which embryo(s) to transfer during the procedure. Additionally, for frozen embryos, it helps in determining the optimal order for thawing. By providing objective and scientifically supported information, Life Whisperer enhances the decision-making process, ensuring the highest chances of success for your fertility treatment.

With the aid of this innovative technology, our team can confidently select the embryos with the greatest potential, maximizing the likelihood of a successful outcome. At our clinic, we embrace cutting-edge advancements like Life Whisperer to provide you with the most advanced and effective fertility care available.

Enhanced Physical Proximity
