The Lab

At Olive, we have invested heavily in the most advanced equipment for our brand new lab. However, there is much more than just the hardware that we use that makes our lab so special.

All the egg and embryo handling, sperm injection procedures (ICSI) and embryo biopsies are performed in this lab and we have done everything to make sure that it is the very best lab environment it can be for these purposes. We have installed a very intricate air control system which maintains a precisely controlled level of air circulation, positive air pressure and very low particle count within the embryology lab. This ensures that we maintain the safest environment for eggs, sperm and embryos.

To ensure the safety of the sperm, eggs and embryo, all of the storage tanks where sperm, eggs and embryos are kept frozen are equipped with alarms that protect against anything that could go wrong. Our laboratory staff is on 24 /7 alert to deal with any issues that arise.

But beyond our technology, what really sets us apart is the outstanding group of scientists that run our lab. At the lead is Dr. Salaheldin Abdelgadir, PhD, who has been a laboratory director for nearly 20 years with certification as a Technical Supervisor (TS) and High Complexity Lab Director (HCLD) from the American Board of Bioanalysis. What is unique to Olive is that we have the only PhD-educated lab director in the province who works on-site, full time to maintain strict and direct supervision of all laboratory processes and procedures. While some labs may rely on off-site, contracted lab directors who work remotely or only on a part-time basis, Dr. Abdelgadir is exclusively dedicated to Olive.

Working with Dr. Abdelgadir is an entire team of amazing embryologists and andrologists. These highly educated and experienced individuals are unsurpassed in their technical skills, their passion, and their dedication to allow us to provide the most advanced, successful, and progressive care possible.

WHAT IS THE EMBRYOSCOPE™?

The EmbryoScope™ is an IVF incubator system with a built-in camera that provides time-lapse photos of embryo development from fertilization to transfer.

The device takes high resolution images every 10 minutes and the embryos never leave the environmentally controlled incubator. The images provide the embryologist with detailed information about the timing of cell divisions and other critical events that indicate the health of the embryo.

Meet Our Doctors:
DR AL YUZPE MD, FRCSC

Dr Yuzpe is co-founder and co-director at Olive Fertility Centre. As Canada's most senior Reproductive Endocrinologist, he has been involved in IVF for the past 30 years and in the field of infertility for the past 43 years.

He received his MD, M Sc. and completed his fellowship training in obstetrics and gynecology at Western University, London Ontario. During his training, he was a Fellow of the Medical Research Council of Canada for two years with his research focusing on the development and refinement of fertility promoting drugs including clomiphene and human gonadotropins.

Dr Yuzpe joined the Western University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1970 and passed through the academic ranks to Full Professor. He retired from the University in June 1995 and now holds the distinguished academic appointment of Emeritus Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He then went on to found the Genesis Fertility Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia.

He pioneered the development of the emergency contraceptive pill which is often referred to as "The Yuzpe method". This method was recently named by the Canadian Child and Youth Health Coalition to be among the 10 most important Canadian discoveries which have had the greatest impact, or the greatest potential for impact, on health outcomes for children and youth in the last 100 years.

Dr Yuzpe has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society Award of Excellence in Reproductive Medicine, The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Presidents Award "for his distinguished career in academic reproductive endocrinology and infertility and his dedication to women's health in Canada and abroad," and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Speaker's Award.

Meet Our Doctors:
DR MARGO FLUKER MD, FRCSC

Dr. Margo Fluker received her MD and completed training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Alberta in 1985. After completing her clinical fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of California in San Francisco, Dr. Fluker joined the faculty at the University of British Columbia in 1989, where she currently holds the rank of Clinical Professor. In 1995, Dr. Fluker co-founded Genesis Fertility Centre with Dr. Al Yuzpe. Dr. Fluker is actively involved in medical education and received a national teaching award from the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1999. Dr. Fluker has authored 48 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 6 textbook chapters. Her clinical and research interests involve new ovulation induction protocols for assisted reproduction, treatment options for young women with premature menopause, and early pregnancy assessment. Although she “retired” in 2010, Dr. Fluker can’t quite stop coming to work because she still finds enjoyment and fulfillment in her interactions with colleagues and patients. You may spot her at the clinic doing ultrasounds or procedures 1-2 days a week, or at BC Women’s Hospital, where she provides urgent care for women with threatened miscarriages at the Early Pregnancy Assessment Program (EPAC). She is passionate about providing ethical and evidence-based care, and is committed to supporting both the team and the philosophy of Olive Fertility Centre.
