Bitcoin-powered genetic data tracking system Eggschain reportedly disclosed details related to a new alliance forged with the Boston IVF chain of 30 fertility clinics in the United States.

Specifically, the new alliance is reportedly going to utilize blockchain technology provided by Eggschain to assist with the tracking of cryogenically preserved sperm to be used for in vitro fertilization (IVF) and other fertility and non-fertility treatment, together with storage of genetics in the long run. 

“Using the blockchain to track biospecimens such as sperm and eggs empowers individuals facing reproductive issues. This pivotal partnership enables greater confidence through the transparency and immutability of the data.” An Eggschain representative further remarked. 

Established in 1986, Boston IVF reportedly functions as a chain of fertility clinics that focuses on IVF, genetic data storage, and endocrinology. 

The clinics have reportedly offered assistance for more than 100,000 babies to be delivered so far. The chain has also completed the graduation of over 30 reproductive endocrinologists via its accredited REI Fellowship Program.

Head of Boston IVF David L. Stern reportedly shared his expectations for integrating blockchain into the firm’s operations to enhance the customer experience “with an unparalleled level of transparency and security.”

Austin-based Eggschain reportedly operates as a healthcare tech firm developing a supply chain solution for the fertility sector, via utilizing blockchain developed on Bitcoin layer-two Stacks. 

It is in charge of running a custody management system that secures stem cells, DNA, RNA, organs, tissues, blood, and IVF.

It supposedly brings down the period required for the sperm selection process throughout international jurisdictions, via finalizing the registration of data on its platform, offering to safeguard high-level patient information, steering clear from any potential misfiling of data, and amping up the transparency of overall operations.
