More lawsuits have been filed against University Hospitals for the disaster that left thousands of eggs and embryos compromised.

"There is just not an ability to do this unemotionally".

Three class-action lawsuits have been filed so far by couples who lost eggs and embryos. "Anger is a big part of the phone call", he said. "Our goal is to provide all the patients we see with some kind of a family".

The hospital has issued an apology after the unexplained malfunction caused temperatures inside the storage tank to rise.

The failure came the same day as one at a Cleveland-area clinic where officials estimate about 2,000 frozen eggs and embryos may have been damaged by a similar storage malfunction.

Clinic spokesman Alden Romney told the Post the eggs and embryos from the troubled tank represent as much as 15 percent of the total stored at the facility. The lawsuit also stated that the storage tank has monitors and sensors that set off audible alarms if there is a temperature flux, and can be monitored remotely.

After eight years, they were ready to use their frozen embryos at the fertility clinic.

According to Herbert, once the failure was discovered, the lab director immediately had a spare storage tank brought into the lab and filled with liquid nitrogen, so that the eggs and embryos could be transferred.

Herbert told the Post, "This was a bad incident, but I was reassured that".

That means the Packers could be a significant player in the cornerback market, if they can clear some additional salary cap room. The teams also swapped picks in the fourth and fifth rounds, meaning the Packers moved to the top of those rounds.

Hunt said staff members at the Grand Rapids clinic also physically check the tanks every week.

"We are so very sorry this happened and we want to do all that we can to support our patients and families through this very hard time", Patti DePompei, president of University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital and MacDonald Women's Hospital, said in a video posted on Facebook. He said the clinic is sending letters to about 500 patients "that may have been involved in this tank".

According to the clinic's website, its fees for egg freezing are $8,345 for the initial cycle and $6,995 for each subsequent round.

"Never in their worst nightmares does that embryo become not viable because of conduct or misconduct of the clinic", Wolf said.

Herbert is a longtime physician and researcher in assisted reproductive technology. He moved to San Francisco in 1990 and, with colleagues, purchased Pacific Fertility Center nine years later.

At least two class-action lawsuits have now been filed against an OH hospital following a storage bank malfunction that potentially destroyed as many as 2,000 eggs and embryos. Some of the samples date to the 1980s, said Dr. James Liu, head of the hospital's obstetrics and gynecology department.

UH officials said earlier the hospital does not comment on litigation.
