Technology

Reprogene is an independent advanced genetics facility offering the most innovative high-tech equipment and procedures available to return comprehensive, reliable and expedited results for PGS, PGD, and translocation screening. All protocols and technologies have been externally/internally validated and optimized.

As an IVF Clinic you have the choice to select your technologies/ platforms from any of these tests:

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Technology

  • NGS is the latest technology used in human genome sequencing.
  • NGS involves reading the sequence of thousands of small DNA segments throughout the entire genome to provide a crisp, clear analysis of each chromosome’s copy number.
  • Fastest NGS based solution for PGS.
  • Higher throughput analysis and resolution for reliable results.

Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) Technology

  • Widely used, proven PGS method for many of the world’s reference laboratories; used to process over 350, 000 samples.
  • Fast and reliable straightforward workflow-streamlined protocols include minimal tube transfers, documented QC stages, and flexible stopping points.
  • Accurate identification – Increase coverage of pericentromeric and subtelomeric regions to ensure the reporting of the smallest derived chromosome fragments.

PCR/qPCR/rtPCR Technology

  • qPCR Technology is one of the most reliable and widely-used molecular methods.
  • Based on highly sensitive DNA primers and probes that bind to specific regions in the genome, PCR can revewal chromosomal aneuploidy and gender with little starting DNA making it a powerful PGS tool.
  • qPCR-based PGD tests can be customized for many single gene disorders caused by single point mutations.
