Tags to prevent IVF confusion

1st September 2009

Liverpool Women's Hospital has said it will introduce an electronic tagging system in order to decrease the possibility of IVF errors.

Dr Steve Troup, scientific director of the hospital's Hewitt Centre for Reproductive Medicine, said: "In the past we did this manually, which was effective, but this new system will make it even more efficient and avoid any potential problems that have occurred in other hospitals. The electronic witnessing system offers patients increased confidence that their samples are safe and will not be mixed up at all times during treatment."
