The state-of-the art facility resolves to adopt the best practices of assisted reproduction techniques in order to bring to Vietnam the very best of fertility treatments. In July 2014, HANH PHUC’s Fertility Centre achieved the RTAC Accreditation, thus endorsing itself as a Fertility Centre adopting and practicing International standards of reproduction techniques. “Since the opening of Hanh Phuc’s business in Vietnam market in 2011, it has striven to bring all the medical quintessence from the world to Vietnam and to provide a high standard of clinical quality care to serve our patients in Vietnam. Our Fertility Centre is no exception. The Centre is continually striving to bring the very best in assisted reproductive standards and technologies to Vietnam. The Centre sets high standards for observing patient safety and laboratory techniques. It has consistently achieved high success in pregnancy rates and has helped many couples in Vietnam fulfill their dreams of having a baby. In July this year, the Fertility Centre was awarded the RTAC Accreditation, an international recognition and endorsement of the high standards it maintains for the patients and their procedures. Not one to rest on its laurels, the Fertility Centre continues to seek to improve and benchmark itself against other reputable international Fertility facilities. Today, it gives me great pleasure to announce our collaborative partnership with Genea Australia, through their appointed Regional Joint Venture partner Superior A.R.T., Thailand. This partnership with Genea and Superior A.R.T. is the culmination of our efforts to fulfil the promise we make to our patients – to bring the region’s if not the world’s best to Vietnam.

Mr. Sarayuth Assamakorn, Managing Director at Superior A.R.T said, “We are very excited about this partnership!

Their research and technology development sets them as world leaders in assisted reproductive techniques and technology. Mr. Steven McArthur, Scientific Director at Genea, said “Genea takes 25 years of clinical insights at Genea Fertility and combines them with almost 25 years of investment in research and development to create and commercialize IVF laboratory technology for the global fertility market. This provides patients with success rates that are amongst the best in the world and will continue to improve”. “In addition, Genea Biocells has developed the world’s largest and most varied private bank of human embryonic stem cells, with cell lines representing almost 30 genetic diseases, enabling advances in research and drug discovery in areas of unmet medical need,” Mr. McArthur said.
