Karyotype

Play Video

The determination of the human karyotype, i.e., the determination of the chromosomal set of an individual, is a fundamental genetic examination that all our clients undergo. Some people may, without knowing it, have an abnormal chromosomal set. This can be a cause of infertility, repeated miscarriages, or the birth of a child with developmental defects

Who is the test suitable for?

For all couples who are planning to have a baby now or in the future.

Approximate cost

Health insurance covers karyotype testing for couples with a medical indication. More detailed information on prices can be found in our price list.

How it works

We first take a sample of your blood. We examine that in the cytogenetics laboratory to determine your chromosome count and then sort the chromosomes by size and characteristic bands into a single set. This process is called karyotyping. You will know the results in about 2-3 weeks after the blood sample is taken.

PANDA Infertility

Play Video

This is a genetic test using a blood sample. It allows us to examine hundreds of mutations and variants in DNA that cause the most common genetic diseases or have a significant impact on fertility and successful pregnancy.

For whom is the test suitable?

  • For couples who are unsuccessfully trying for a baby and want to learn more about their genetic health
  • For couples with a family history of a serious genetic condition
  • For couples who are unable to conceive or have experienced repeated miscarriages

Testing is suitable for couples using assisted reproduction as well as for those who are trying or want to try for a baby spontaneously. Even though both partners are apparently healthy, they may be carriers of a genetic disease.

Approximate price

€435 per person

What can PANDA Infertility do?

  • It can detect the 5 most common rare diseases: cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, deafness, fragile X syndrome and phenylketonuria.
  • At the same time, it tests genes that give us more information about:
    • the causes of male or female infertility, the degree of ovarian response to hormonal stimulation and the risks associated with the administration of hormone replacement therapy after embryo insertion,
    • the genetic cause of infertility or embryo development disorder,
    • thrombophilic mutation.

How it works

We take blood from both partners and send it to the genetics laboratory, where our geneticists start testing the selected genes. When the 500 most risky genes in the population are examined, 1-2 mutated genes are usually found, which means that a person is a carrier of 1-2 monogenic diseases. The examination ends with a comparison of the mutated genes in both partners, based on which the genetic compatibility of the couple is determined.

PANDA Carrier

Play Video

This is an expanded PANDA Infertility test that tests each couple for up to 110 of the most clinically significant recessive monogenic diseases in order to reduce the risk of a baby being born with a medical defect.

For whom is the test suitable?

  • For all couples planning a baby who want to learn more about their genetic health
  • For couples with a family history of a serious genetic condition
  • For all couples planning to start a family now or in the future. Even though both partners are apparently healthy, they may be carriers of a genetic disease.

Approximate price

€653 per person

What can PANDA Carrier do?

In the Central European population, approximately 1-2% of children are born with a monogenic disease. The PANDA genetic test cannot completely eliminate this risk, but it can significantly reduce it, making it approximately 10 times less likely to occur.

PANDA Carrier enables use to diagnose:

  • the 110 most common monogenic recessive diseases,
  • the genetic causes of infertility or embryo development disorders,
  • fertility disorders and their treatment,
  • thrombophilic mutations.

How it works

During the examination, we take blood from both partners and send it to the genetics laboratory where our geneticists begin testing it. We currently test genes for 110 of the most clinically important recessive monogenic diseases. The test ends by comparing the mutated genes in both partners and determining the couple’s genetic compatibility.

PANDA Exom

PANDA Exom is the broadest examination available in testing for hidden (recessive) mutations in a couple. The test screens for almost all diseases with a known genetic cause and maximally reduces the risk of monogenic diseases in offspring.

The test enables the comparison of mutated genes in both partners (genetic matching) and the possible identification of a gene that is carried by both partners at the same time.

For whom is the test suitable?

  • For couples who are planning a baby and want to learn more about their genetic health
  • For couples with a family history of a serious genetic condition
  • For all couples planning to start a family now or in the future. Even though both partners are apparently healthy, they may be carriers of a genetic disease.

Approximate price

€1,304 per person

How it works

This test also uses blood samples taken from both partners, which are then tested in our laboratory. It enables us to compare the mutated genes in the partners. If the couple is shown to have a mutation in the same gene and therefore a risk of their child being affected, we can offer the couple preimplantation genetic testing for monogenic diseases (PGT-M).

Most frequently asked question

PANDA Infertility can reveal predispositions for the 5 most common rare diseases: cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, deafness, fragile X syndrome and phenylketonuria.

Yes and no. It is, of course, possible to hope for luck and try to conceive spontaneously, but then it is necessary to investigate the disease prenatally – i.e. during pregnancy.

In this case, however, it is necessary to take account of the possible artificial termination of the pregnancy due to a genetic defect or the birth of a disabled child. This risk is high.

In addition, certain conditions significantly reduce the likelihood of natural conception or considerably raise the risk of spontaneous miscarriage. This is why, here at Repromeda, we recommend that couples facing such conditions undergo IVF with PGT-M.

If the examination reveals a predisposition for one of the diseases on both sides and there is a risk of it occurring in the child, you can rely on the help of artificial insemination using preimplantation genetic testing (PGT-M) of embryos. Only an embryo that does not contain the mutated gene is transferred into the uterus.

The tests reveal possible genetic predispositions to hereditary diseases, congenital tendencies to miscarry, and allow us to predict embryo development. If you have a history of repeated miscarriages and doctors are unable to find out the exact reason, you can get not only an answer but also a solution to your situation.

The results of the genetic test provide unique information about the causes of infertility in the man or woman, the degree of response of a woman’s ovaries to hormonal stimulation or the risks associated with the administration of hormone replacement therapy after embryo implantation. This makes it possible to tailor treatment even more closely to patients.

PANDA Carrier can do everything that PANDA Infertility can, but detects an additional 106 of the most common monogenic recessive diseases.

In addition to cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, fragile X syndrome, deafness and phenylketonuria, it also focuses on visual and hearing impairment and musculoskeletal and skin diseases.

With PANDA Carrier testing, you can make the risk of having a genetically affected child 10-20 times lower.

If the examination reveals that both partners are carriers for a certain disease and there is a risk of it occurring in their offspring, you can rely on the assistance of artificial fertilization using preimplantation genetic testing (PGT-M) of embryos. Thus, only an embryo that does not contain the mutated gene will be transferred to the uterus.

The tests uncover potential genetic predispositions to hereditary diseases, congenital tendencies to miscarriage, and allow for the prediction of embryo development. If you have experienced recurrent miscarriages and doctors have not been able to determine the exact cause, with us you can obtain not only an answer but also a solution to your situation.

The results of the genetic test provide unique information about the causes of infertility in men or women, about the degree of a woman’s ovarian response to hormonal stimulation, or about the risks associated with administering hormone replacement therapy after embryo transfer. This enables even more personalized treatment for patients.
