Creating a future where people are empowered to take control of their reproductive health.

Changing the lives of families, and generations through genetics

The only lab solely focused on reproductive genetics in South Africa. We are leading the way with best practice testing standards.

Why is reproductive genetic testing so important?

Reproductive genetic testing helps identify genetic disorders or conditions that may be passed on to your future children. Our genetic testing gives you this information, so you know - even before you conceive - what your risk is of having a child with a genetic disorder, and if your own genetic profile is affecting you falling pregnant or carrying a baby to full term.


Our testing is for everyone looking to start a family - whether that’s today, or in years to come. The early detection of reproductive genetic risks is critical - reducing the risk of passing on genetic diseases to your future children. One in every six couples struggle with fertility issues in South Africa. We are here to support your journey with our professional and reliable service.


Our Expertise

Our specialised testing portfolio includes proactive carrier screening before you start a family, as well as specific testing if you’re struggling to conceive, like PGT-A, PGT-M, POC and Endometrial Receptivity Testing (ER-T).

Healthier families. Healthier generations.

Every test has an impact - shaping not just the present, but future generations to come.


South Africa has the potential to be a world leader in reproductive genetics. We are committed to educating our nation so that genetic testing will become an integral part of our healthcare system. This will enable South Africa to build its own base of African-specific genetic knowledge. With this comprehensive genetic data, new research opportunities will arise. Ultimately, our goal is to create more equitable testing, where individuals, regardless of socio-economic status or background, can benefit from advancements in reproductive genetics.


We didn't realise how important testing is, but now our goal is to tell everyone to do it!
