The Fertility Center of San Antonio Expands Reproductive Services with the Addition of INVOcell

MEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INVO Bioscience, Inc. (IVOB), a medical device company granted FDA clearance for the first Intravaginal Culture System, INVOcell™, today announced that The Fertility Center of San Antonio, Texas, a leading reproductive services provider in central and southeast Texas, has expanded the scope of its reproductive services with the addition of INVOcell.

INVO Bioscience (IVOB) is a medical device company, headquartered in Medford, Massachusetts, focused on creating simplified, lower cost treatment options for patients diagnosed with infertility. The company's lead product, the INVOcell, is a novel medical device used in infertility treatment that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development in the woman's vaginal cavity.

Matthew G. Retzloff, M.D., said, "We are pleased to be working with the INVO Bioscience team to add INVOcell to our palette of reproductive services. INVOcell brings innovation to the reproductive services practice by featuring a streamlined process and significant cost benefits to patients. The INVOcell process also decreases the possibility of multiple births, unlike more traditional in-vitro fertilization processes. INVOcell provides an additional avenue of hope to couples that have failed to conceive with other reproductive procedures. We are excited to embrace the benefits of INVOcell for our patients in the greater San Antonio metro area."

INVOcell is a patented medical device used in the treatment of infertility that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development to take place in the woman's body, in vivo. The INVO Solution allows women to incubate their own gametes, providing a psychological benefit while reducing the risk of wrong embryo transfer. Utilizing a mild stimulation protocol, it decreases the number of oocytes required, which may reduce the risk of severe ovarian hyperstimulation (OHSS), reduce the risk of multiple births, and/or reduce the need for embryo cryopreservation and storage. As a lower cost option to traditional IVF, INVOcell expands access to patients who may otherwise be unable to afford the traditional method or would prefer for a more natural, cultural, or religious appropriate choice.
