Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an essential, how-to guide to building and managing an IVF laboratory from the ground up. … The audience is physicians and embryologists/andrologists who are interested in understanding the basics of establishing an IVF laboratory. … This is a necessary book for any graduating fellow or physician involved in assisted reproductive technologies. It helps nonscientists better understand the role of the IVF lab and can actually help them talk the language when building their own clinic/lab. A must have!” (Kenan Rifat Omurtag, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2014)
