Laboratory & Quality Management
Andrology Solutions was established in 2007. The clinic is licensed by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (Centre No. 0293) for processing and storage of sperm, and intrauterine insemination with either partner or donor sperm.
Handling of sperm for storage or insemination is carried out in a Class II Safety cabinet with Grade A air quality.
Andrology Solutions Ltd. has put in place a radio controlled liquid nitrogen alarm monitoring system with an autodialler facility to ensure the highest standard of safety for storing sperm.
Andrology Solutions offers comprehensive, up-to-date diagnostic testing for male fertility in collaboration with The Doctors Laboratory, which is a CPA accredited facility.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority’s 8th Code of Practice requires a licensed centre to “put in place a quality management system and implement this system to continually improve the quality and effectiveness of the service provided in accordance with the conditions of this licence and the guidance on good practice as set out in the HFEA’s Code of Practice”.
A quality management system is defined as “the organisational structure, defined responsibilities, procedures, processes and resources for implementing quality management (i.e., the co-ordinated activities to direct and control an organisation with regard to quality), including all activities which contribute to quality, directly or indirectly” (International Organization for Standardization (ISO)),
Andrology Solution’s quality management system is fully documented and regularly assessed by an internal audit programme by a quality professional. In addition Andrology Solution’s compliance with the regulations is regularly inspected by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.
