Genetically inheritable diseases are caused by mutations in our genes that we pass on to our children. GeneMatch is a test determining whether your genes and those of your donor are a healthy match. The test determines whether you and your donor share mutations in the same gene that would result in your child inheriting a genetic disease.
In short, by matching your genes we can determine if you and your donor carry mutations in the same genes and in this way determine if the future child is at risk of inheriting a disease.
GeneMatch screens for more than 400 genetic diseases and will give you an answer to ensure that you and your donor are a healthy match.
When you have decided which of our donors you would like to proceed with for your fertility treatment, you can choose to add the GeneMatch test to check if you are a healthy match. The choice of this additional step in your donor search is entirely up to you. On the one hand, it may not feel necessary for you and you may choose to settle for how donor selection has been done up until now. On the other hand, performing a GeneMatch may give you an additional sense of security on your journey towards parenthood. The choice is yours.
It is possible to purchase a GeneMatch test for just one donor or multiple donors* if you would like to check your match with more than one donor. The price for a single test is 1199 euro.
*If the donor accepts additional genetic testing included in the GeneMatch test.
With the GeneMatch test, you will get an answer as either one of the three types of results below.
You do not carry mutations in the same genes as your donor. Your child is not at risk of inheriting any of the diseases covered by GeneMatch. If you’re a match, you will see this as “no incompatibility is observed” in your report.
You and your donor carry mutations in the same genes, meaning that your child is at risk of inheriting a genetic disease. If you’re not a match, you will see this as “incompatibility is observed” in your report.
We recommend that you choose a different donor and do a new GeneMatch.
Your genes contain a mutation that could cause disease in your child if he is a boy.
The process is quite simple. All you need to do is order the GeneMatch on each of the donors’ profile and we will send you a test kit. You will do a mouth swap to collect a sample of your saliva, which is to be sent to the test site. You will receive the result of your test 6 weeks after we have received your saliva sample. We will send you the test result in an email with the above information.
We recommend that you purchase the units from the donor for whom you ordered GeneMatch and keep them in a storage while you wait for the result of your GeneMatch. With the purchase of GeneMatch, a 12-month storage is included free of charge.
