Safely and naturally, protect your baby from diseases that run in your family.
Send us saliva samples from both partners.
See how your genetics impact your child’s health.
Explore personalized options with a genetics expert.
Quantify the level of genetic risk you can pass on to your child. Orchid’s Couple Report measures:
Coronary Artery Disease
Class III Obesity
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes
Note: The number of conditions reported is dependent on your and your partner's ancestry. Because people of non-European ancestry are underrepresented in some GWAS data, certain GRS have worse cross-ancestry predictive performance and will not be reported in those populations. We are actively working to expand the list of conditions for all ancestries.
Tailor your family's diet, fitness, and health
Choose to mitigate your future child's genetic risks with embryo testing
Monitor biometrics, motivate earlier screening, and make lifestyle changes
Find out if you're genetically predisposed to a condition that runs in your family
Other tests look at less than 2% of only one partner’s genome. Orchid sequences >99% of both partner's genomes.
Other tests look for disorders that impact less than 1% of babies. Orchid looks for the top chronic diseases.
Couples can mitigate genetic risk through electing for IVF and embryo screening.
Every report includes personalized guidance from board certified experts.

Our genetic test tells you how you and your partner’s genetics can impact your future children’s health. We quantify genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease, atrial fibrillation, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, celiac disease, coronary artery disease, inflammatory bowel disease, prostate cancer, severe obesity, schizophrenia, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes.
Your Couple Report will tell you if your future child’s genetic risk is expected to be normal or elevated. Your results also include individual reports for each partner — where you can discover your genetic risks for these conditions to help you take action and optimize your own health.
Anyone who is thinking of starting or growing their family can benefit from being aware of genetic risks early. Our goal is to help you prepare and to be proactive about your family’s health.
At Orchid, we take the role we play in delivering clinical-grade information to you at this life-altering milestone in your life seriously.
Orchid sequences and analyzes 6 billion data points across the genome of you and your partner from your saliva samples. Based on you and your partner’s genetic information alone, we’re able to statistically model the range of possibilities for your future child’s genome.
Once we’ve modeled how you and your partner’s DNA can realistically combine, we quantify what your future child’s genetic risks can be. For each condition, 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”).
Orchid is the only physician-approved, advanced preconception screening for couples to take from home.
Analyze 100% of both you and your partner’s genomes — not less than 2%. High quality results start with high quality, comprehensive data. We sequence the full genome of both partners to provide the most advanced genetic risk assessment available. Other tests like 23andMe or carrier screening look at less than 2% of only one person’s genome.
Screen for diseases that matter for every family. Genetics impacts every person’s brain, heart, and general health. Unlike other genetic tests that focus on rare genetic disorders that only impact about 1% of the population, we measure genetic susceptibility to chronic, debilitating diseases that affect over 60% of the population. These are diseases that we all likely know of someone whose health has been significantly impacted by.
Expert-guided and physician-approved testing. Top doctors and scientists helped create our test, and all results are approved by a physician. Speak with a board-certified genetic counselor about your results and explore personalized next steps with fertility doctors.
No, quite the opposite. Knowing your genetic risks helps you go into pregnancy better prepared and informed on what actions can be taken to mitigate those risks.
Some couples may tailor their family’s diet, fitness and preventative screening; others may consider electing for follow-up embryo screening in the IVF setting. Our goal is to help every couple who wants to start or grow their family to conceive confidently and proactively monitor their future child’s health.
Knowing your genetic predispositions ahead of time helps you optimize your family’s health.
Your privacy is our top priority. We handle sensitive, personal information and biological samples and we don’t take that responsibility lightly.
