Reproductive Genetics

Preimplantation Genetic Testing

First Genomix specializes in preimplantation genetic testing for embryos created during IVF cycles. This testing provides valuable information about each embryo before implantation, helping to select viable and healthy embryos for a successful pregnancy. During the IVF cycle, after fertilization, a cell or cells are taken from each embryo and tested at First Genomix. The results of the genetic testing are used to determine which embryos to transfer back into the uterus, reducing the risk of transferring aneuploid or affected embryos.

Genetic Testing for Male Infertility

For many couples, achieving a pregnancy can be difficult due to different reasons which may include male infertility.

Male infertility may be implicated in many cases of unexplained and recurrent pregnancy failures and chromosome abnormalities in offspring. It can result because of low sperm production, abnormal sperm function, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Conventional semen analysis studies sperm concentration, motility, and morphology, but does not consider genetic parameters such as:

  • Numerical errors in sperm chromosomes, also known as aneuploidies
  • Microdeletions, or the loss of small portions of the Y chromosome
  • Low integrity of the DNA molecule in the sperm

Genetic testing plays an essential role in investigating different genetic aspects of male infertility. The results can help couples in making better-informed reproductive choices for the future.

Genetic Testing for Endometrial Receptivity

Many women encounter a complex problem called Recurrent Implantation Failure (RIF) during their IVF journey. RIF is defined as a failure to achieve a pregnancy after transfer of at least four good embryos in at least 3 IVF cycles in women under the age of 40.

To address RIF, First Genomix offers the Implantation Window test (IW) that measures the expression of relevant hormone-regulated genes, to help precisely determine the short time period during which the woman's endometrium is receptive for implantation, i.e., ready to accept an embryo.
