Accreditation of the IVF Laboratory
In all laboratories of the Sanatorium Helios, the primary issue is concerned with the quality of work. Therefore, all laboratories of Sanatorium Helios are regularly subject to an audit by the independent agency ČIA (Czech Institute for Accreditation, o.p.s.), whether they meet the conditions for accreditation according to the ČSN EN ISO 15189 standard. This year’s audits of the IVF Laboratory and the Laboratory of Medical Genetics, which took place from 24 to 26 February 2020, were very successful.
Not all assisted reproduction centers with their laboratories are inspected in this way. For patients, the quality of laboratory work should be one of the main criteria for their selection.
Supervision over the quality of work of the IVF Laboratory is provided by a professional guarantor, prim. MUDr. Pavel Texl. Of course, there is a highly qualified and experienced staff, who has undergone a very strict inspection within the accreditation. We have succeeded in full range.
Accreditation of the Laboratory of Medical Genetics
An audit of the independent agency ČIA in the Laboratory of Medical Genetics also confirmed that the conditions for its accreditation according to the ČSN EN ISO 15189 standard are met.
We have accredited all methods used for preimplantation genetic testing, as well as methods for cytogenetic and molecular cytogenetic examination of peripheral blood.
Supervision over the quality of work of the Laboratory of Medical Genetics is provided by professional guarantor, prof. MUDr. Jiří Šantavý, CSc.

Global Clinic Rating Accreditation
SANATORIUM Helios once again upheld the accreditation of Global Clinic Rating in March 2020. Our clinic is the first and so far the only center of assisted reproduction in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. For our center, the primary concern is the quality of work and provided care.
This accreditation represents an expert assessment of the clinic and it demonstrates the fulfillment of a high level of expertise, technological equipment, quality of service and patient response. The Global Clinic Rating is a worldwide rating of clinic quality. We have been one of the top 5 clinics in the world out of a total of 1821 for over 3 years. However, this position in the rating is independent of the accreditation itself.
Accreditation is only allowed to clinics with proven highly above-average results that have been achieved in the long term.

ISO – International Organization for Standardization
Every process needs to be systematic. This is especially true for highly specialized activities such as medical procedures and laboratory technology.
Already in 1994, the Helios Sanatorium obtained ISO 9001 certification. ISO documents were created by an international organization in order to set requirements for quality management systems. ISOs provide systematic specifications for improving operational performance, serving as a model for quality assurance and control and management of these processes.
