When you choose to have a child with medically assisted reproduction (ART), the choice of the donor is one of the most important. Deciding who will be your egg or your sperm donor, you determine the genome of your baby.
It's an important choice, and the only way to accomplish it in a conscious way is to know in depth the genome of your donor.
donorsgenome™ is the whole exome and whole genome sequencing and analysis service conceived specifically for ART users, the only one able to offer a 100% knowledge of the donor's DNA and allow you to make the right choice.
Unlike most common genetic or genomic tests, which analyze only one or a few genes (gene pannels), donorsgenome™ allows you to know the whole sequence of the donor's genome, and to obtain endless information useful for health and wellness, using next generation sequencing (NGS) methods and
sophisticated algorithms for bioinformatics analysis.
The information contained in the DNA is responsible for the color of our eyes, determines what we should eat to feel good, the sport more appropriate for each of us, how we respond to certain drugs, the diseases we are more predisposed and much, much more.
With donorsgenome™ you can access all this information in the genome of your potential donor, decide if it is appropriate for you and have it always available.
To allow you to make the best choice for the health, wellness and beauty
of your baby!
With donorsgenome™, you can truly enter the age of personalized medicine, taking the most correct decisions, based on the unique knowledge of the genome.
• analyzes the genome of the eggs donor or sperm donor
• provides an extremely accurate report with all the features of the donor's genome, allowing you to decide if the donor
is really fine for you
• analyzes the donor's genome and your genome, or the genome of your partner or both
• provides an extremely accurate report with all the features of the donor's genome, and the match between the donor's genome and your genome, or the donor's genome and the genome of your partner or between the three genomes
next generation sequencing has ushered in a new era of medicine, making available diagnostic, clinical and lifestyle information unimaginable just a few years ago: the personalized medicine becomes now a real opportunity!
Choosing to analyze the genome of your potential eggs and/ or sperm donor with
donorsgenome™ scan you will have:
the detailed analysis of all the detected gene variants related to the presence or the greater risk of developing many diseases, including tumors, cardiovascular, autoimmune, metabolic, immune system, neurological diseases and disorders and much more
information on gene variants related to wellness and longevity, metabolism, cardiovascular health, weight control, diet, physical activity, aging, personality, physical appearance and much, much more
the analysis of over 200 pharmacogenomic variants, the individual DNA characteristics related to how the body metabolizes certain drugs
identification of the possible state of healthy carrier for numerous genetic hereditary diseases, that could affect your child
Furthermore, choosing donorsgenome™ match you will have also, depending on test options:
• the best possible genomic match between the donor and the replaced parent, so that your baby looks like the replaced parent as much as possible
• the best possible genomic match between the donor and the receiving parent, so that you can avoid donors that are carriers of gene variants mismatched with those of the receiving parent, and that could lead to the development of diseases by your child, or to the increased risk of developing
• the best possible genomic match at all, in case you need two donors
(eggs and sperm donors)
In addition, if no restrictions apply by your donor, the whole DNA sequence obtained with donorsgenome™, digitized into a file that represents the digital version of the donor's genome, can be safely saved in the cloud or hard drive and can be always available to be consulted anytime during the life; this file can be re-analyzed periodically, to obtain further information in addition to the initial ones, made available in the future thanks to the continuous progress of genomics, or the file can be analyzed on request to obtain specific information related to certain genes, following the onset of symptoms or a disease, a new diagnosis, or the discovery of a new drug.
If your infertility clinic or agency is already working with us, you can ask for donorsgenome™ and they will provide you all the info and will take care of all everything necessary.
Basically, if you choose a donorsgenome™scan version and your potential donor was already sequenced, simply the clinic/ agency will release you the report and yo can decide if the donor is very fine for you.
If the potential donor has not yet been sequenced, the clinic/ agebcy will ask us to do sequencing and analysis sending us a saliva sample of the donor. As soon the report is generated, the clinic/ agency will provide you.
In case you choose a donorsgenome™match version, you and/or your partner will be requested to collect a saliva sample using a collection kit that we, or the clinic/ agency, wil provide you. As soon the genome is sequenced and analyzed a match report will be generated and delivered to you.
If your infertility clinic or agency is not already working with us, or in case you are contracting directly a potential donor, you can ask us for donorsgenome™.
Depending on your needs (eggs and/or sperm donor) and on the version of the test you will choose (donorsgenome™scan or donorsgenome™match) we wil provid you the collection kit for the donor and or for you or your partner. We will take care of the shipmemt of the samples to the lab, we will do the sequencing and analysis and we will deliver you the report.
