Screening your genes for an added sense of security
Your genes carry genetic disease
We're all carriers of genetic disease. That's because our genes contain errors - or mutations. Even if we're not sick ourselves, our mutations can cause serious disease in our children.
In many cases, a child inherits a genetic disease when the man and the woman have mutations in the same gene.
To reduce the risk of having a child with genetic disease, we've developed GeneXmatch.
What is GeneXmatch?
GeneXmatch is a screening test that improves the chances of your future baby being healthy.
The test compares the genes of the prospective mother with her chosen sperm donor. By matching their genes, we're able to determine if the woman and her donor carry mutations in the same genes. In other words, we can tell if a future child is at risk of inheriting a serious disease.
GeneXmatch screens for more than 400 genetic diseases. That way, you get an added sense of security that you've chosen the right donor.
