Survey:2014 IVF Laboratory census /False
Comment:FertAid has used the 2013 census as the blueprint for this survey but in response to feedback and curiosity expanded some sections. For instance the type of media has been included but only for established products. FertAid acknowledges this is general in nature and not reflective of any product and subject to potential browser bias. Several quality questions have been added plus some on workload and issues. Happy to receive comments and criticism over content. Make the 2015 census better.

We do more than 40% eSET in all age groups
Mix sequential media brands
We devide our pts between into multiple incubators depending on their D in the the lab and procedure type.
I do not think many people are still doing D3 biopsy or ET.
