ReproTech President discusses FDA Regulations and Embryo Donation at Nursing Symposium

October 17, 2012 - ReproTech, Ltd. president, Russ Bierbaum, was invited to speak to infertility and OB/GYN medical professionals at Nursing Symposium.

Reproductive Medicine and Infertility Associates held its 2012 Fall Nurse Symposium at its location in the Woodbury Medical Arts Building in Woodbury, MN yesterday.

ReproTech President Russ Bierbaum discussed Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines for the donation of tissues, and ReproTech's Embryo Donation Program. Bierbaum reported that for many couples, their only hope of achieving a full-term pregnancy begins with donated embryos. When continued storage of embryos is no longer practical, some couples will choose to destroy their embryos, while some feel the best choice is to donate their embryos to help other couples achieve pregnancy. ReproTech can facilitate this donation process. ReproTech also offers several Embryo Donation for Research options, and has established relationships with programs across the U.S. which are involved in many different types of research, from basic laboratory research to genomics research to stem cell research.
