I have used RI Witness for over three years now and it has made a dramatic difference to our working practice in the laboratory. It eliminates the need for non-critical steps to be double witnessed by another embryologist, such as sperm preparations, which is laborious and time consuming.
The working areas ensure only one patient’s gametes are worked on by any given operator at any given time, acting to reassure embryologists and give patients extra confidence in a secure system which safeguards their precious gametes and embryos.
The system generates reports at the conclusion of every treatment cycle which provide a record of staff members involved in patients’ treatments, as well as procedure times and dates, which fulfils regulatory requirements.
The Witness system has been positively received by our patients and staff alike. I can honestly say I wouldn’t want to work in a centre which doesn’t use this system in the future.
