The set up hosts state of the art equipment’s along with 3 beds recovery room, Andrology Lab, Embryology Lab with some extremely sophisticated equipment. A well-equipped lab has several types of powerful microscopes, state-of-the-art embryo incubators, and IVF micro tools. In order to grow and develop properly, an embryo requires a complex set of environmental controls at every stage.
The air quality in an embryology lab has an enormous effect on the health and viability of embryos. The units in an IVF lab should generate enough air pressure that the air in the room is entirely replaced a minimum of 20 times an hour, hence High-quality air filtration system has been installed in the lab along with the careful light and temperature control. Embryos are exquisitely sensitive to changes in ambient light and temperature as they develop. Both of these factors are profoundly important. These specialized embryology labs have a vital role to play in IVF, and access to a great IVF lab can greatly raise the chances of success in the fertility treatments along with the team of specialist doctors and the support staff. Jehangir Hospital IVF centre understands the need of an hour and the fact that the standard of an IVF lab plays a crucial role in the treatment cycle and that the quality of an IVF lab is perhaps the most important factor.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Mr. Vinod Sawantwadkar, CEO Jehangir Hospital said, “IVF centre was the only missing link in our comprehensive Mother and Child Unit and with Jehangir – ART we now are a complete one stop solution for all the mother and child services. According to Mr Sawantwadkar, The ultimate advantage of IVF is achieving a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. IVF can make this a reality for people who would be unable to have a baby otherwise: Around 14% of married couples are going through infertility issues and it continues to grow approximately 10% annually. Hence, it is extremely important to have more such centres.”
