Today, we offer a series of exclusive services for our customers which result from our R&D+I efforts.
Endometrial receptivity is the state in which the endometrium is in when it is ready for embryonic implantation to take place. This takes place in all menstrual cycles in fertile women at around day 21 of this cycle. Nowadays, the only study done on the endometrium is an ultrasound scan, and there is currently no analysis method available that helps doctors in their clinical practice.
Within the study of an infertile couple, the ERA (Endometrial Receptivity Array) analysis consists in assessing the woman’s endometrial receptivity status from the molecular viewpoint as an important analysis of the uterine factor. This molecular tool allows us to diagnose whether the endometrium is receptive or not by analysing the expression of a group of genes responsible for this function. To go about this, an endometrial biopsy must be done on day 21 of the menstrual cycle (the receptive phase) or on day LH+7, or after 5 days of progesterone in a substitute cycle.
The Genetic Identity Card (GIC) is a genetic fingerprint which is obtained from the individual’s DNA. Everyone’s DNA is unique and is the equivalent to our fingerprint. The GIC is indicated to genetically identify children born from donated gametes and/or adopted children.
Obtaining a GIC involves a simple collection of the child’s buccal cells using the cotton-wool swab supplied in the kit.
