Your trusted partner in reproductive health research

Reproductive health research from past decades has led us to a better understanding of genetic risk factors, as an essential part of determining reproductive options for planning or growing a family. In addition many of the new molecular technologies are assisting clinical researchers in discovering and identifying many rare genetic diseases. Research today will lead to advances in knowledge and technology that will one day bring about improvements that will accelerate outcomes for families.

Prenatal and postnatal genetic testing

Prenatal and postnatal genetic testing

In prenatal and postnatal genetic testing copy number variations (CNVs) are well-recognised genomic structural variants associated with genetic disorders. Chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) successfully detects submicroscopic CNVs, and since 2010, is used as a first-tier test for the detection of CNVs related to intellectual disability, developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders, and congenital abnormalities.

Discover what matters in prenatal and postnatal genetic testing in two white papers:

Chromosomal microarrays: next-generation karyotyping assays for detecting inherited chromosomal anomalies

  • The development and use of chromosomal microarrays for analysing chromosomal anomalies
  • The benefits of using chromosomal microarrays over traditional G-band karyotyping
  • Case studies of instances where chromosomal microarrays detected anomalies that were missed by G-banding

The power of high-resolution SNP arrays for detecting inherited chromosomal anomalies

  • The benefits of using SNP arrays over other types of arrays
  • Case studies of instances where SNP arrays detected anomalies that gave rise to developmental defects

Comprehensive preimplantation genetic testing by NGS

Comprehensive preimplantation genetic testing by NGS

Advancements in next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods enable simple, scalable, and innovative sample-to-answer workflow solutions for PGT-A (aneuploidy) and PGT-M (monogenetic/single-gene defects). With integrated analysis tools, PGT by NGS is now accessible by any lab, regardless of expertise.

Benefits of using Ion Torrent NGS for comprehensive PGT

  • Comprehensive results from a single sample and integrated NGS workflow—with the combined PGT-A and PGT-M solutions
  • Accessible NSG regardless of experience, with simple, integrated analysis tools—customisable analysis from Ion Reporter Software for aneuploidy calling and PGD-SEQ linkage analysis software for comprehensive familial carrier status
  • Economic in-house PGT solution that grows with your business—Ion chip technology addresses variable throughput needs to cost-effectively process PGT-A and PGT-M samples on the same system without the need to outsource
  • Rapid workflow for time-sensitive samples—go from sample to results in less than 12 hours
