Infertility – A societal health concern
Around 17.5 percent of the adult population, roughly 1 in 6 worldwide, are affected by infertility as per the latest report published by the WHO. When it comes to India, it is home to almost 28 million infertile couples, and a double-digit growth in infertility has made it a personal, psychological, and societal health concern. However, the treatment rates are less than 1 percent as it still remains a condition that is often not prioritized as a key health issue.
As the risk factors continue to increase, the rising burden of infertility is alarming, and it is about time to address the issue to mitigate its serious implications both at an individual level and on a societal level.
The recent enactment of the ART rule is expected to drive standardization, clinical efficiency, and patient centricity in a fragmented market. On a similar line, the IRDAI’s directive to insurers, mandating comprehensive insurance coverage for surrogacy, seeks to amplify affordability and accessibility for potential parents who aspire to expand their families through this method.

We provide a wide range of products and services for the complete ART process and enable healthcare providers to put time on the side of women, babies, and families at the healthcare moments that matter most in life.
Be it our innovative lab management system, such as RI Witness™, wide range of media and consumables, special products for poor prognosis patients, such as culture media with GM-CSF, innovative sperm selection tools – PICSI® and SpermSlow™, our aim is to offer fertility specialists with the best possible support to drive the efficiency of their clinics and support them to increase the standards of treatment.
We strongly believe that fostering innovation through knowledge sharing is essential for bridging the existing skill gap that exists today. In India, our center of excellence is located in Mumbai where we offer a wide range of courses and workshops for embryologists, gynecologists, lab managers, and R&D scientists with hands-on expert training. Our recent collaborations with academic institutes, such as the Lovely Professional university and Gujarat university as an industry partner, is one of the key strategic steps that we have taken to raise the level of education and research in the field of clinical embryology.
Our gratitude extends to the Indian fertility community for their acceptance of not only our products but also for various knowledge initiatives like CMEs, workshops, and panel discussions. We were also the knowledge partners in the development of the historical ART consensus guidelines, involving the three major infertility societies of India – ISAR, ACE, and IFS – which is a breakthrough in the Indian IVF industry that aims to bring in the standardization in the IVF process to optimize results.
