Bahrain workshop connects Assisted Reproductive Technology professionals


Prof. Daniel Franken

Prof. Daniel Franken

On October 10, our distributor partner Jaffar Pharmacy hosted an assisted reproductive technology (ART) workshop. Over 25 ART professionals including embryologists and lab technicians from all over Bahrain came together to learn from expert Prof. Daniel Franken PhD.

Prof. Daniel Franken was a key member of the WHO task force for standardizing semen analysis. During the workshop he spoke in detail about standardizing semen analysis by discussing key topics including morphology, sperm vitality, concentration, and motility.

As part of the workshop attendees had the opportunity to experience practical training in the area of vitality staining.

Bala Chandar, product specialist for Jaffer Pharmacy, noted it was well received with feedback from delegates being extremely positive; “Morphology and the Vitality of Sperm were the most popular topics and generated the most interest from the attendees. I believe the workshop will be of help to the attendees in the future when they carry out sperm analysis.”
