Features & Facts

Recognition of the best
A dozen awards and quality certificates prove the high quality of services at the Institute of Life Athens. In particular, the medical center was one of the first in Greece to receive the quality management certificate EN 15224 -2017 and ISO 9001-2015 simultaneously.
Meticulous attention
The clinic was the first in the country to focus on details that can affect IVF. Cooperation with the American company TMC made it possible to equip laboratories with hydraulic anti-vibration tables and increase the accuracy of delicate micromanipulation at the cellular level.
Forewarned is forearmed
The Athens Institute of Life offers more than 7 advanced genetic tests for pre-implantation diagnosis and endometrial research. The possibility of a detailed examination allows for avoiding diseases of the fetus and understanding the reason for the couple's infertility.
Research for development
Cooperation with Embryotools allowed the medical center to participate in the "Metal spindle transfer" clinical trial, which studies cytoplasmic dysfunction of oocytes and repeated IVF failures.
Two heads are better
The "CHLOE OQ" technology is Greece's first and only artificial intelligence scientific tool at the Institute of Life Athens. Modern incubators allow you to evaluate each egg and calculate the percentage of chance of having a child, selecting the best material.

About the clinic

Institute of Life Athens is one of Greece's leading reproductive medicine clinics, competing with world medical centers. A modern laboratory and the latest methods allowed the hospital to receive international recognition and certifications indicating compliance with European standards of quality and safety of treatment. Also, doctors participate in clinical studies under the licensing and supervision of the National Agency for Medical Aid in Reproduction. This approach helps the medical center be the center of cutting-edge developments and the first to implement effective treatments. The clinic offers cures for female and male infertility, assisted reproductive technology, as well as storage of patients' biological material for future fertilization planning. Preservation of testicular tissue with the help of Sperm VD is practical even in cases of deficient concentration of spermatozoa in semen. In addition, testicular biopsy (TESE/micro-TESE) avoids surgery. Additional laboratory methods increase the chance of fertilization, implantation of the embryo, and successful pregnancy. Physiologic intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (PICSI) and intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) ensure the selection of the most suitable sperm without damage to the genetic material and with maximum functionality. Assisted hatching of embryos and blastocysts with Octax Navilase helps solve embryo implantation problems, which is especially relevant for women over 37 years old. Laser technology makes it possible to thin the special zona pellucida of oocytes and increase the probability of embryo implantation in the endometrium. In addition, the EmbryoScope® Plus, available at the Institute of Life Athens, allows reproductologists to monitor the development of up to 240 embryos simultaneously. Information about the growth rate of embryos and further dynamics is obtained with the help of artificial intelligence ERICA "Embry Ranking Intelligent Classification Algorithm". Artificial intelligence is also involved in the selection of high-quality sperm. 24-hour delayed embryo monitoring, first introduced in Greece within the clinic's walls, also increases the success rate of results up to 41%. Pre-implantation diagnostics on the 5th day of embryo development allows for selecting the highest quality specimens for fertilization without genetic abnormalities. Athens Institute of Life continues to research and develop the best methods of infertility treatment to maximize the possibility of pregnancy the first time through assisted reproductive technology. Doctors understand the importance of the birth of a healthy child in the event of a long-awaited pregnancy and are equipped with the most accurate methods of material selection, storage, and testing of embryos at an early stage. A team of gynecologists, reproductive specialists, psychologists, and geneticists provides a multidisciplinary approach.
