Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if there is a power outage?
Our storage tanks are filled with liquid nitrogen, which has an extremely low temperature. The tanks are not controlled by electricity, so there is no power to fail. The only electrical component on the tanks is the alarm, and these are equipped with backup battery power. Our team checks the tanks every day to ensure that they are at the optimal level to keep the eggs frozen.
How do you identify each patient’s eggs/embryos?
At Evolve, we have a sophisticated bar-coding system, as well as a unique identification number for each patient. Barcode labels with your ID code are used on all dishes and tubes that come into contact with eggs, embryos and sperm — and everything is verified by scanning before freezing and thawing to ensure accuracy.
Are the eggs or embryos monitored 24/7?
How long can my eggs or embryos be stored?
There’s no limit — they can be stored indefinitely. The freezing process we use at Evolve keeps the cells safe for a long, long time.
Does that mean I’ll be paying for storage forever?
As long as your eggs or embryos or sperm are stored with Evolve there will be storage fees.
