Become a referring IVF Center
Partnering to help infertile and at
genetic risk couples
We are proud to partner with many of the most respected IVF
clinics in the world. Our success with some of the most
complicated diagnoses makes us well suited to collaborating
with you whether the case is straight forward or complex.
Our thoroughness, level of patient care and ability to
deliver test results in 24 hours are the reasons we should
be part of your team on all your cases.
To become a referring IVF center, contact us by phone or via
email so we can set up scheduling, reporting and access to
our secure encrypted Internet database. A vast array of
genetic diseases can be analyzed by PGD, but first we must
develop, optimize and validate the specific probes that will
be used. For each couple, the probes to be used during PGD
must be tested on single lymphocytes from the parent?s blood
before the cycle is begun. For many of the more common
single gene diseases GENOMA can perform the necessary
validation in about two weeks. For genetic diseases with
variable mutations the development, optimization and
validation procedures can take 4-6 weeks. Remember, there is
no such thing as off-the-shelf PGD. A pre-PGD evaluation
must be performed before the cycle begins for all patients.
Forms and checklists for drawing blood, blood submission,
pre-case, and blastomere biopsy submission are available on
the forms page as downloadable PDFs.
