These courses will be held at our new ART training facility, the Reproductive Skills Centre (RSCB), located at the Centre for Reproductive Medicine (CRG) – UZ Brussel (University Hospital Brussels, VUB).
Our trainer will be Martine Nijs PhD, an ESHRE accredited senior clinical embryologist. Places are limited to three participants only (on a first-come-first-served basis) to ensure an intensive and focused training experience.
Running over two days, our Trophectoderm Biopsy Workshops provide core knowledge, introductory practical skills, and an overview of biopsy techniques for different developmental stages including cleavage stage and Day 5. They also explore genetic analysis methods. You will learn how to prepare the biopsy setting, perform assisted hatching biopsies, retrieve trophectoderm cells using lasers, and biopsied cell tubing.
The course fee is EUR 1300 which includes lunch and refreshments. Participants will need to organize their own transport and accommodation. There is a choice between staying close to the hospital or in the city center, details will be provided upon booking.
