WATCH: Expanded Genetic Testing – How To Choose An Egg Donor

 

Fairfax EggBank Expanded Genetics Testing Webinar

Fairfax EggBank uses expanded genetic testing for all new donors that enter our program.

In this webinar, Fairfax EggBank experts explain what it means when an egg donor is a healthy carrier, how to interpret the results of expanded genetic testing panels of an egg donor and a sperm source, and how to make the best choice for your growing family.

Genetic Counselors Are An Excellent Resource

There are benefits to consulting a genetic counselor during your donor egg journey, and many IVF clinics have someone on staff who can work with their patients to find the best donor. If your clinic does not have a genetics counselor, our Genetics team is available to work with you.

In the webinar, our Certified Genetics Counselor, Suzanne Seitz, MS, MPA, explains the basics of selecting a donor that has been tested with GenPanel+ (the Fairfax EggBank expanded genetics panel), how to look for the information for our donors in their online profile, and how we can work with you in your decision making process.

Fairfax EggBank Client Relations Specialists Help Every Step Of The Way

Our Director of Client Relations, Teri Y. Reaves will walk you through the process of selecting one of our pre-screened, FDA-compliant egg donors, and what to do if your donor and your sperm source are not a good match.

Conversations about genetics can be intimidating. At Fairfax EggBank, want to provide intended parents with support throughout the process in finding their perfect egg donor. As the premier frozen donor egg bank in the United States, our experts have the benefit of more than 30 years of experience in safe and successful reproductive tissue banking, and we have a dedicated team ready to support you.

Carrier Donor Matching Process

If you are interested in a donor who has tested positive as a carrier for a certain genetic condition we will work with you to determine if the donor is a suitable match. You, and your clinic, will receive a Genetic Testing Summary report and acknowledgement form for the donor of interest. The report includes:

  • The results of all genetic conditions for which the donor was tested 
  • Further details on any condition for which the donor tested positive 
  • Any recommendations on partner testing that should be completed 

Your Cohort Can Remain In Storage While You Test

Additional sperm source testing can take several weeks to complete. To give you time to take this important step, you can match with a donor, pay the cohort fees, and store the cohort at Fairfax EggBank. If within 60 days after payment your sperm source test results show that he is a carrier for the same condition(s) as the egg donor, then we will give you a full refund or help you select a different donor.
