This is a short video, where you will find a short introduction regarding Vitrolife's group. In the video, the different departments will introduce themselves, and they will explain their functions and their organization.

Based on the latest scientific publications, it is considered that if the embryo has a low-medium level of mosaicism (up to 50% aneuploid cells) they have a development potential equivalent to the completely euploid. This change in criteria increases the number of embryos that a doctor can transfer to a patient, given that until now mosaicisms of between 30% and 50% were considered aneuploid and were not transferred to patients.

This has very relevant implications, for this reason, Carmen Rubio's team explains this new change and the implications it will have for each affiliate.



We introduce the new GPDx Academy Hub with some training modules from an “Introduction to Genetics” to  the “Whole Exome Sequencing” and much more.

Whether you are in Accounting, Bussiness Development, or in the Lab, we all shall know some basics about Genetics and the Genetics Precision Diagnostics (GPDx) company products.

We want to make your learning journey fun and engaging… so we have created a global Igenomix competition: The Gene Run!

8 sprints in 2 months are you ready?


Genetics is the study of heredity - how traits are passed from parents to their offspring. This introduction to genetics takes you through the basic components of genetics: DNA, genes, chromosomes, and genetic inheritance.

This review covers the emerging field of new DNA sequencing technologies and outlines the potential benefits – and the challenges – of these technologies for reproductive genetics.

Igenomix has decided to launch a new business unit called Genomics Precision Diagnostics (GPDx) in all markets in 2021 with the objective of integrating genomics into clinical decisions, with a focus on the rare disease area.

GPDx is a complex service that allows personalization and differentiation, a field where Igenomix is good. There is a huge potential and we have the key ingredients to compete and present high-quality services that will help many patients and doctors.



We are going to gain an understanding of what Prenatal Care is and how Igenomix contributes in this area. Prenatal Genetic Diagnostics is a service that identifies genetic alterations in the fetus that can lead to a disorder during pregnancy or the neonatal period that is clinically actionable.


In this course, we will learn about the Single Gene Technologies, its different diagnostic tests for a concrete genetic disease associated to mutations in one specific gene or genomic region. Expansion Repeats (EXP) is a specific technology oriented to detect polynucleotide expansions in a gene or genomic region. The MLPA or multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification, is a specific technology for CNVs in a gene or genomic region. And the Gene Sequencing (NGS) is oriented to detect DNA sequence variations in a gene or genomic region.


In this module, we will get to know another type of test within GPDx. It is a diagnostic test based on NGS of the complete coding region of all genes of the Human Genome. WES is the best option for non-specific genetic diagnosis. Our WES tests have been developed to maximize the diagnostic yield for patients with genetic disorders.


In this course of the Gene Run, we will learn about the Smart Solution, our Precision Panels by specialyties. A diagnostic test based on NGS of multiple genes associated to a disease, condition, or phenotype.


In this module we will see how the Genetics Counseling Support works. It consists of scheduling meetings with our Genetic Counselors, our experts, and access to Educational material through our Client and e-Learning platforms. These meetings could be in person or online.


The non-invasive test that allows us to prioritize for transfer the embryos with higher chance of being euploid, avoiding an invasive embryo biopsy.


El test no invasivo que nos permite priorizar la transferencia de aquellos embriones con la mayor probabilidad de ser cromosómicamente normales, evitando la biopsia embrionaria.

The Endometrial Receptivity Analysis (ERA), is a test designed to evaluate endometrial receptivity. ERA® identifies the window of implantation (WOI) and recommends the best time for embryo transfer thereby increasing the chances of a successful outcome.

  • EMMA determines if the uterine microbial environment is optimal for embryo implantation.
  • ALICE is a diagnostic test to detect and quantify the eight most common pathogenic bacteria causing chronic endometritis, recommending appropriate antibiotic and probiotic treatment.




Aneuploid conceptions constitute the majority of pregnancy failures in women of advanced maternal age. The best way to combat age-related decline in fertility is through preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A). PGT-A allows for better embryo selection, which improves implantation rates with single embryo transfer and reduces miscarriages rates.

During the pregnancy, the mother´s bloodstream contains a mix of cfDNA that comes from her cells and cells from the placenta. These cells are shed into the mother´s bloodstream throughout pregnancy. The DNA in placental cells is usually identical to the DNA of the fetus. Analyzing cfDNA from the placenta provides an opportunity for early detection of certain genetic abnormalities without harming the fetus.

With this course, you´ll learn what the POC test is, and how the genetic study of fetal tissue is a valuable tool to determine if the cause of the miscarriage was the result of a chromosomal aneuploidy.

If both partners in a couple carry a mutation in the same gene, there is an increased risk of having an affected child. Using the CGT test, before pregnancy, we can determine if a person is a carrier of genetic mutations that could be transmitted to their children, thus preventing serious genetic disorders in their offspring.

PGT-M allows patients who are carriers or who are affected by genetic diseases to select unaffected embryos for transfer before becoming pregnant.

SAT is a diagnostic test to study the genetic etiology of male infertility. It allows us to evaluate the presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in the sperm. It can identify males with a low chance of reproductive success.

Mitoscore is a mitochondrial biomarker which gives us an indicator of the energy status of an embryo. It allows us to select those embryos with the greatest probabilities for implantation, increasing the possibilities to result in a viable pregnancy through IVF/PGT-A. 

With this brief tutorial, you´ll learn, what the endometrial biopsy consists of, and how it´s performed to obtain the tissue sample and carry out the ERA® test 

Con este breve tutorial, pretendemos que conozcas, en qué consiste la biopsia endometrial, y cómo se realiza la misma para la obtención de la muestra de tejido y llevar a cabo el test ERA®

Durante un tratamiento de reproducción asistida, el embrión puede no implantar con éxito si no es transferido en el momento óptimo, ya que el endometrio sólo es receptivo durante un breve periodo de tiempo que varía de una mujer a otra, conocido como la ventana de implantación.

El test ERA, evalúa la receptividad endometrial y determina el momento óptimo para la transferencia embrionaria aumentando así las probabilidades de embarazo.

Estudios recientes señalan que el endometrio juega un importante papel en el éxito reproductivo de las pacientes, es por ello que IGENOMIX, lidera la investigación en este campo desarrollando nuevos test que analizan diferentes aspectos de la salud endometrial.

EMMA: Analiza el microbioma endometrial para un pronóstico reproductivo más favorable.

ALICE: Detecta las bacterias que causan endometritis crónica y recomienda el tratamiento adecuado.

Con este curso, pretendemos destacar la importancia que tienen los diferentes microorganismos en la salud y la enfermedad humana, analizar el impacto que tiene el microbioma endometrial en el resultado reproductivo de las pacientes  y por último, comprender como las variaciones en los niveles de Lactobacilos endometriales, pueden jugar un papel fundamental en la infertilidad.


La duración aproximada del mismo es de 40 minutos.
