621. Number of technicians

24 July 2004 by William Wong
Someone asked me to send this question to IVF mail, hope can get help. He works in a private IVF lab. His work duty is all work as a lab director, embryologist and andrologist. Every year, he does 250 fresh IVF cycles, 60 Frozen cycles, 300-400IUI and ~300 complete semen analysis, and QC, QA, QI, CAP inspection paper work, SART data entry, supply order and all others in ART labortory by himself. He wants to know how many employees should work in such lab according to your opinion. Because there is no regulation about this issue from CLIA, CAP and other organization, it is very difficult to get information.
