There are other tests Tambre’s immunologists can order in the case of previous failed cycles, such as KIR/HLA.
KIR and HLA-C Genotyping: This is an immunological compatibility study between the two people who provide gametes for assisted reproduction treatment, or between the recipient and the donor. Your results will be ready in one week.
Another fertility test that may be recommended is the Genetic Compatibility Test, also known as Genetic Matching. Every one of us has some form of genetic mutation but the Genetic Compatibility Test allows fertility specialists to detect whether a parent carries a particular type of mutation (abnormalities in a particular gene), with the aim to limit the transmission of genetic disorders to offspring.
This test can be carried out if both parents provide their gametes and results are available after four weeks. If both partners provide gametes and some sort of incompatibility is found, we recommend that Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is carried out to select the healthiest embryos.
In the case of using donor eggs or donor sperm: the intended parent provides their gametes and one of the donor’s eggs (or donor sperm, where applicable) is tested for matching genetic mutations. If a donor is found to have the same genetic mutation, Tambre matches the intended parent with a different donor who is genetically compatible.
