At CAG, our embryology laboratory support is provided through our collaborations with state-of-the-art laboratories in both Orange and San Diego Counties.
CAG Embryology Resources:
Our primary laboratory is conveniently located some 20-30 minutes south of Carlsbad at Reproductive Sciences Medical Center. RSMG is a global leader in embryo diagnostics and IVF technology, and is equipped to deliver the latest in embryology diagnostic technology including next generation sequencing.
Our Embryology Director, Dr. Catharine Adams, has almost 30 years of experience in IVF; she is the only full-time, on-site PhD embryology lab director in San Diego. Dr. Adams has been selected by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) as an inspector of other IVF labs that are seeking CAP accreditation. She oversees a high-complexity laboratory team with expertise in preimplantation screening, egg/embryo cryopreservation (freezing) and blastocyst culture. Our clinical and research resources enable CAG to provide our patients access to world class fertility treatments — with results to match.
For our IVF patients who prefer to have their egg retrieval & embryo transfer procedures in Orange County, CAG also has a secondary affiliation with the Southern California Institute for Reproductive Sciences (Newport Beach). Whichever lab is most convenient for you, Dr. Sills personally performs all of his own oocyte retrievals and embryo transfers.
