With help of IoT platform, it provides labs with accurate data, dual check point, data accessibility from anywhere, intelligent alarm systems

Indira IVF uses Internet of Things (IoT) technique in their embryology labs. With the help of IoT, sophisticated sensors and chips are embedded in equipments which monitors and records the valuable data and also transmits in real time. IoT systems are based on web, application or cloud and also represent data graphically for real time monitoring.

With this IoT technology, clinics can understand better how their system and equipment’s are working. As of today, 42 main centres of Indira IVF are equipped with Labcare system.

In the process, IVF labs creates embryos which requires artificial womb and also factors like temperature, CO2, pH, humidity, etc. in lab as embryos are very susceptible to even minute changes in these conditions. With the help of IoT platform, it provides labs with accurate data, dual check point, data accessibility from anywhere and intelligent alarm systems.

The alarm system send notification via email, automated calls, SMS etc. to concerned person and in case of no response it can also be escalated to senior management. The data collected by an automated system with actual insights without any human bias helps in minimising errors. This technology allows to access and monitor data by sitting at home helping us to keep an eye on quality control 24/7 X 365 days.

Indira IVF is using two systems currently regarding IoT platform, firstly IVF Labcare system which take care of different specialisations like lab care, lab health, Cyro sense, cold sense, freeze sense etc. and secondly RI Witness system which ensure patient’s confidence about the safety of gametes and tracks length of procedures, exposure of samples out of incubators and person handling the samples.

Speaking about IoT technique, Dr Nitiz Murdia, Director Embryology, Indira IVF, said, “By using IoT, Indira IVF aims to provide quality care and quality treatment to the patients. For a large group like Indira IVF IoT adds versatility in its quality control and it not only also helps lab team to reduce its workload in a busy setup but also brings security and peace of mind to IVF patients. We aim to reproduce future in present by embracing technology for benefit of not only patients or our organisation but for society.”

Speaking about the same, Naval Shah, Head Embryology Quality Assurance, Indira IVF, stated, “IoT is a powerful tool which helps to analyse varied data of the entire group under one umbrella. This helps in monitoring lab and culture conditions that are very critical to human embryo growth and helps to produce excellent results. It optimises efficiency of both lab and lab personals leading to excellency.”
