In The Press

Review of the previous edition: '… an excellent handbook for good IVF laboratory practice right down to a description of total quality management (TQM) systems … concise, well written and should be mandatory reading for all potential and actual embryologists, as well as for those clinicians seeking a wider understanding of the subject.'
