In order to meet the high standards we set for ourselves, at FCH we regularly carry out internal audits and continued professional development. These quality assurance measures are reflected in above average pregnancy rates.
The quality of our work is verifiable - and regularly verified.
The FCH clinic as a whole is DIN EN ISO 9001 certified and fulfills the hygiene requirements. Furthermore, we also hold the Authorisation for the Procurement of Tissues (Section 20b of the German Medicinal Products Act (Arzneimittelgesetz – AMG)) and for the Processing, Preservation, Testing and Storage or the Placing on the Market of Tissues (Section 20c AMG), and Approval for Tissue Sampling under the German Transplantation Act (Transplantationsgesetz - TPG).
All our team members participate in professional training events at regular intervals - this ensures we stay up to date with new developments. Our doctors place particular emphasis on scientific activities and attend meetings with colleagues from other institutions. This enables them to keep up to date with the latest research at all times. We transmit this knowledge to our patients during our information evenings. Finally, we carry out regular surveys to obtain feedback on our work from patients and referring doctors. A standardised comparison with other centres (called benchmarking) and participation in ring trials of the Germany Society of Andrology (QuaDeGA) are the final elements of our quality assurance policy.
The FCH belongs to a network of Centers of Excellence who have forged an international reputation thanks to their outstanding scientific performances and interdisciplinary work.
Our success rates prove us right: at FCH, we are proud to report success rates of 60-80%*.

According to international standards, the birth rate for IVF/ICSI treatment is always based on one cycle with embryo transfer and is given as number of births per 100 transfers. The diagram depicting our birth rates at FCH illustrates the chances of success depending on the patient's age.
