Anatolia IVF has made a great investment to use the RI Electronic Witnessing System (EWS) https://fertility.coopersurgical.com/products/ri-witness/, a proven and validated system, to
- To avoid the real risk of human error (mix-up of biological material)
- To enhance the efficiency in the IVF laboratory
What is RI Witness?
RI Witness uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to detect and monitor all activity in the IVF Laboratory. The system helps mitigate the risk of human error every time samples are moved from one dish or tube to another, and safeguards every step of the IVF cycle.
Throughout the lab, RI Witness readers are situated wherever work is undertaken, critically where samples are handled.
They are active all day, every day, so a check cannot be overlooked. An RI Witness work area has a tablet computer connected to the server, integrated with our clinic’s patient database. Thanks to self-adhesive RFID tags attached to all the laboratory plasticware, it is possible to ensure protocols are followed and only compatible samples are worked on at any one time.
The system is automatic, so it does not require additional steps by embryologists to identify samples, which are necessary with human double witnessing or barcode witnessing systems. By automatically tracking, monitoring and recording across all the work areas, RI Witness provides the highest level of safety.
