Our partnership with IVF Centers Prof. Zech

The IVF Centers Prof. Zech is one of the most renowned IVF clinics in Europe. They have over 25 years’ experience with over 25,000 babies being born through their clinics. They run clinics in six different countries across Europe – Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Liechtenstein and Germany.

The guiding philosophy of the IVF Centers Prof. Zech is that they provide their clients with the shortest possible time in achieving a pregnancy and this is backed by one of the highest pregnancy rates in Europe. They continue to maintain their position at the forefront of the IVF industry through continuous research and innovation.

We collaborate with IVF Centers Prof. Zech on a number of levels to bring our patients here in Nigeria all the advantages of a top-tiered clinic in Europe.

Improvements in pregnancy rates

The science of assisted conception and IVF treatment are rapidly advancing and the Zech Group operates at the cutting edge of this science. They are in fact leaders in their field internationally. By collaborating with the group we have built all our systems to be in line with theirs. This means we have been able to significantly improve our pregnancy rates through some of the world’s most sophisticated systems.

Implementation of the latest techniques:

Under the supervision of the Zech Group we have been able to implement many new techniques that increase your chances of having a baby:
Blastocyst transfer:

By culturing all embryos for five days we are able to select the strongest embryos which have a much higher chance of implanting and becoming your pregnancy.


Vitrification is a revolutionary new method that allows us to freeze spare embryos making a second chance of embryo transfer and pregnancy a real possibility.

Egg banking:

Through vitrification we can now also bank eggs, especially for women who want to preserve their fertility. This also improves the availability of donor eggs for couples who may require donor cycles.

MSOME technique:

We are now able to increase pregnancy rates by using this latest method for assessing the ability of the sperm to effectively fertilise the egg.


By using the MSOME technique we can select the best sperms for injection into the egg during ICSI.

Genetic screening:

Using top genetic screening processes before implantation means we can test the embryo to be sure that the embryos we transfer have no genetic abnormalities. This can also be used to find out the sex of the embryo before transfer.


We have access to Dynamed, an IVF client management and electronic medical record system pioneered by IVF Centers Prof. Zech. The system focuses on ensuring the highest standards of client care and safety and is aligned with world-class treatment standards.

Through this system we can share information with the Zech Group team allowing them to help us with valuable advice on the management and treatment of all our patients. Through Dynamed you have access to the best level of international service right here in Nigeria.


We send staff to the Zech Clinics in Europe every quarter to work and train with the best so that when they come back they can continue to deliver the highest standard IVF treatment in Nigeria.

The Zech team also travel to Nigeria to train our staff, making sure we keep providing the same high quality service you have come to expect.

Review and collaboration

Every month we review how our clinics are performing in terms of pregnancy and fertilisation rates and compare them to the expected results from the Zech clinics. By continually improving on our results as compared to international benchmarks we deliver to you the best chances of getting pregnant.

If you are in treatment but have not yet achieved a pregnancy we review your case with the Zech team to create a more successful action plan. You also have the option to travel within our system to Europe for further treatment.

Together The Bridge Clinic and IVF Centers Prof. Zech have agreed to adhere to a common code of conduct to ensure the highest ethical standards in treatment and client service.
