The first, non-invasive, integrated test for endometriosis and genetic causes of infertility.
ARTguide™ is indicated for women considering the use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). This test uses next-generation sequencers to examine genetic variants in each patient across 12 different genes known to impact human fertility, and thousands of variants associated with endometriosis.
How does endometriosis affect fertility?
Studies show that over 40% of women with infertility have endometriosis
Endometriosis can break down uterine tissue, causing scarring and adhesions to develop, making it harder for fertilized eggs to implant
Endometriosis can block the fallopian tubes and decrease ovarian reserve
Endometriosis can interfere with the passage of both sperm and egg through a womanʼs reproductive system
How will ARTguide™ help me?
ARTguide™ uncovers genetic issues that may be affecting your ability to conceive. By examining critical genetic variables, ARTguide™ provides your physician with information that may be essential when creating an accurate and personalized treatment plan.
Integrated genetic panel tests thousands of genetic variants that could identify causes of infertility, possibly eliminating costs of additional diagnostics.
Personalized treatment plans can streamline the ART process and increase the success rate of conception.
Uncovering genetic inhibitors that could be affecting your fertility will allow you to make better informed decisions that may increase your likelihood of having a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Is ARTguide™ right for me?
Your journey with infertility can be emotionally taxing, expensive, time consuming and sometimes unsuccessful.
Many genetic conditions cause or contribute to infertility. Endometriosis is highly genetic and aﬀects more women with infertility than any other disorder.
This test may help in your effort to conceive by:
providing you with an answer as to whether or not endometriosis and/or your genetics are affecting your fertility
understanding the potential cause of your infertility, and provide direction as to how to proceed with treatment
