ACRM (the Advanced Centre for Reproductive Medicine) is Singapore’s leading reproductive health centre, with special dedication to the treatment of infertility in women and men, the performance of laparoscopic surgery to correct problems with their reproductive systems, as well as services in General Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Our centre has been equipped to allow patients to experience a seamless visit from consultations to diagnostic tests and treatments all within the hospital.
ACRM is centrally located at Gleneagles Hospital off Napier Road, one of Singapore’s private tertiary hospitals and is easily accessible via taxi, bus or MRT services. The centre, which offers patients a relaxed and safe environment, is right next to Singapore Botanical Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
ACRM is the only private IVF centre to provide blood-hormone tests onsite, processed through our own hormone laboratory, with results available to the patient within two hours.
In addition, ACRM also has an onsite Andrology laboratory which provides basic as well as advanced semen tests; results are available to the patients within three hours. This includes sperm DNA fragmentation, Hyaluron binding assay except for sperm survival tests (results within 72 hours).
ACRM is currently one of only four reproductive centres in Singapore to offer time-lapse embryo imaging technology. The time-lapse incubator provides a stable environment for cultured embryos and minimises stress through excessive handling while monitoring embryo development. In addition, the in-built camera (imaging system) provides continuous monitoring and developmental analysis of cultured embryos. Time-lapse technology allows the embryologist to perform better selection of embryos with higher potential to achieve a pregnancy, leading to improved live-birth rates.
ACRM, in collaboration with the Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Centre at National University Hospital Singapore, also offers Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) services for patients with known genetic conditions only. Our first PGD case in 2014 conceived and delivered a healthy baby girl in Jan 2015.
