Thirteen Ovation research abstracts accepted for

Nashville, October 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Ovation® Fertility teams present three oral presentations and 10 poster presentations at the ASRM 2021 Science Congress and Exhibition, which takes place both virtually and in person in Baltimore from October 17-20, 2021. In addition, Ovation scientists are leading interactive sessions and panel discussions at the annual event, where top reproductive medicine experts discuss the latest in reproductive care.

“With a heavy daily IVF lab workload, our team members once again found time to pursue their research interests, collect and analyze data from across the nationwide Ovation network. and to produce a considerable number of excellent studies over the past year, ”says Matthew“ Tex ”VerMilyea, PhD, HCLD / CC, vice president of scientific advancement at Ovation. “Ovation’s mission has always been to advance the state of the art in IVF, and we are proud to support our exceptional laboratory teams as they strive to push the boundaries of excellence. in the IVF lab. “
