Mitigate your family's genetic predispositions with advanced genetic screening for your embryosget access
Tell your doctor you'd like to screen your embryos with Orchid
Receive advanced genetic reports for each embryo
Board-certified genetic counselors walk you through your results
Genetics influence the chance of developing disease later in life. Uncover risks and make an informed choice.
Orchid's advanced embryo screening measures:
Coronary Artery Disease
Class III Obesity
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes
High quality results start with high quality, comprehensive data. We sequence the full genome of each embryo to provide the most advanced genetic risk assessment available.
Genetics impacts every person’s health. We focus on measuring genetic susceptibility to chronic, debilitating diseases that affect over 60% of the population.
We’ve partnered with top reproductive medicine doctors and statistical geneticists to help validate our technology. We’re trusted by leading fertility clinics.
Speak with your fertility doctor, who can order Orchid's embryo testing on your behalf.
Embryologists carefully prepare your samples and send them to our lab for analysis.
We sequence your samples, and return a comprehensive report for each embryo.
Receive a prioritized list, from lowest genetic risk to highest, to inform your transfer plan.
Board-certified genetic counselors are available to answer your questions.
Convenient online scheduling with evening and weekend availability.

Advances in computational and molecular biology allow us to measure genetic predisposition to disease more accurately than ever before. We analyze the entire genome to assess the specific genetic risks for each embryo.Read more

Screening your embryos created through IVF allows you to quantify each embryo’s genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease, atrial fibrillation, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, celiac disease, class III obesity, coronary artery disease, inflammatory bowel disease, prostate cancer, schizophrenia, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes. These results can help inform your transfer plan by prioritizing transferring embryos with the lowest genetic risk.
Orchid embryo test is the most advanced gentic risk assessment available for the top chronic conditions.
Our embryo report measures genetic predisposition for common conditions not included in other embryo genetic testing. PGT-A is included in Orchid’s test and is applicable to any couple, while PGT-M and PGT-SR are done only for specific clinical indications.
Currently, the different subtypes of preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) are referred to as:
PGT-A (for aneuploidy) - screens for the number of chromosomes present to increase the chance of a successful pregnancy. Orchid’s embryo test includes PGT-A.
PGT-M (for monogenic conditions) - used only for individuals or couples with a known risk of passing down a single gene disorder such as cystic fibrosis or Huntington’s disease.
PGT-SR (for structural rearrangements) - used only for individuals with a chromosome rearrangement like a translocation or inversion.
For the first time ever, couples can safely and naturally reduce their future children’s genetic risk for the top 12 most common diseases.
For each embryo, Orchid sequences over 3 billion data points across the genome from the three to five cells carefully sampled and sent to our lab. Since each embryo has different DNA, each embryo has different genetic risks for chronic, common diseases.
This is done by comparing the genetic makeup of hundreds of thousands of individuals diagnosed with the conditions we screen for (“cases”) with individuals without diseases (“controls”). Results from the embryo report can help inform your transfer plan to mitigate health risks for your future family.

Your privacy is our top priority. We handle sensitive, personal information, and biological samples and we don’t take that lightly.
We guarantee that:
We do not sell your data to any third party, ever.
You can ask us to delete your data at any time, but this will mean that you cannot access the Orchid service to view your reports anymore.
