Gyncentrum clinics are located in the city centres of two large Polish cities, Katowice and Cracow. Gyncentrum was established in 2011 and is a private fertility clinic accepting national and international patients. Both clinics are located in the vicinity of the biggest attractions and local hotels. In 2021, the clinic’s specialists performed 1,600 treatment cycles of which 40% were egg donation and 60% were IVF cycles using own eggs. Both Gyncentrum clinics have five laboratories, three theatres and three recovery patient rooms.

Gyncentrum Fertility Clinic holds ISO 27001 and ISO 9001. The clinic uses new technologies in their day-to-day operations. Some of the include:

  • OCTAX Ferti Proof System which is a barcode-based system that guarantees control and traceability of all IVF lab procedures and prevents mix-ups of patient samples.
  • Fertile Chip (Microfluidic Sperm Sorting Chip) is an advanced method of selecting sperm selection. This procedure boosts the potential for egg fertilization and mimics the sperm selection process that takes place in the woman’s womb.
  • Oosight Imaging System which is an analytical,non-invasive tool imaging system that analyzes the ultrastructure of the oocyte,
  • CASA (Computer Assisted Semen Analysis) evaluates sperm parameters that are needed for infertility diagnosis. SCA (Sperm Class Analyzer) visualizes the sperm under a microscope, records the data, and assesses sperm parameters. CASA limits the possibility of laboratory errors to a minimum.
  • Primo Vision is a 24-hour time-lapse embryo monitoring system.
  • EmbryoGen with GM-CSF (Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor) is the first culture media used in IVF treatment in which positive outcomes have been proven. This medium is dedicated to culturing the embryos coming from patients with previous miscarriages.
  • Music in the embryo incubator – the studies show that vibrations caused by music enhance the chances of the in vitro fertilization.
