IMT Matcher – electronic witnessing system for IVF centres and donor banks

Visitors Reviews | Add to Favorites | Refer to Friends

Matcher is a barcode-based electronic witnessing, labelling, scheduling, traceability & data Insights system helping to protect patients, fertility centres and donor banks from the risks of error in IVF.

From IMT Matcher

Matcher double-checks, records and tracks the identity of patients and their barcoded samples, from patient registration through to embryo transfer, PGT and cryo storage, helping to reduce the risks of error with safe and easy to install technology.

Matcher’s software system runs on tablet PCs and uses Benchtop Matcher devices and Pocket Matcher handheld Android Wi-Fi devices, together with label sheet printers, bespoke labels and optional biometric fingerprint readers.

Matcher devices use digital photo images to read the barcoded labels, without the use of lasers, radio frequency radiation, supplementary heating or any equipment modifications.

Matcher integrates with all EMR systems, the hardware can be supplied with the system, at no capital cost, and the install is quick and easy with our dedicated expert technical support team, on-hand 24/7.
