Genetic Testing Options
Genetic Carrier Screening Test
Understand your reproductive options with Monash IVF's Genetic Carrier Screening Test. This simple saliva test allows you to choose between a three gene panel or an expanded 400+ gene panel and understand your chances of passing on genetic conditions. This test is available to everyone. You do not need to be an IVF patient to access Monash IVF’s genetic carrier screening. It can all be completed in the comfort of your own home, or you can visit any of our pathology collection centres.
nest - Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening Test (NIPT)
The nest screening test is a simple blood test you can undergo any time from 10 weeks of pregnancy. Non-invasive prenatal screening of cell-free DNA is the most accurate way to assess the chance of the most common chromosome conditions in pregnancy. We also offer genome-wide chromosome screening (nest+) at no additional cost, to provide you with the most comprehensive information about the wellbeing of your pregnancy. nest/nest+ is an Australian test and all samples are analysed by our team of experienced genetic scientists.
PGT-M – Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Single Gene Conditions
At Monash IVF, we offer advanced genetic testing of embryos to patients who are carriers of a genetic condition or are affected by a genetic condition. We are world-leaders in providing reproductive options for individuals and couples in these situations.
PGT-A – Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy
At Monash IVF, we’re relentless in our mission to help you have a baby. Genetic testing of embryos for chromosome conditions which may arise at conception may be useful for couples who are having fertility treatment, by maximising the chance that an embryo transfer will result in a pregnancy.
