Rodinia is a new test that screens for genetic changes (mutations) associated with infertility. By identifying
the genetic cause of infertility, your healthcare provider will be able to take informed and accurate decisions on the best
clinical management for you, which will help increase your chances of conceiving.
Rodinia is suitable for couples or individuals experiencing pregnancy delay, young people with a suspected disorder of sex development and people with family history of infertility.
HOW DOES Rodinia HELP ME?
Identifies the genetic cause for infertility
Enables accurate prognosis
Assists your doctor in deciding the most optimal treatment for you
Increases the chances of successful pregnancy
Informs your doctor on potential complications from treatment, such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
Informs you and your doctor if early interventions are beneficial
WHO IS Rodinia FOR?
Couples or individuals experiencing delay in conceiving
Women with irregular or absent menstruation
Men with low sperm count, irregular sperm form or movement
Individuals with external characteristics indicating a syndrome associated with sex development
Couples or individuals that will undergo assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment
Candidates for sperm or oocyte donation
Individuals with family history of infertility
HOW CAN INFERTILITY GENETIC TESTING IMPROVE PROGNOSIS?
By identifying the genetic cause of infertility, genetic testing can lead to a more personalized clinical management,
and assist in establishing the most fitting fertility treatment for each individual or couple.
In men with azoospermia, genetic testing of the Y chromosome is recommended by the American
Society for Reproductive Medicine, as it can identify which men have a chance of recovering sperm through testicular sperm extraction*.
In women with primary ovarian insufficiency, genetic testing provides early identification which is invaluable as egg harvesting
and cryopreservation at a young age can be performed to preserve fertility.

WHAT DOES Rodinia TEST FOR?
Rodinia offers a female and a male infertility panel which detect numerous genetic mutations associated with infertility. Both panels also test for whole,
partial and mosaic* sex chromosome changes which can cause fertility problems.
*Mosaicism refers to the condition of having two or more sets of cells that differ genetically from one another.
FEMALE INFERTILITY PANEL (55 genes)
Includes testing of the X chromosomes, and disorders such as primary ovarian insufficiency, polycystic ovary syndrome,
hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
MALE INFERTILITY PANEL (40 genes)
Includes testing of X and Y chromosomes, including Y-chromosome microdeletions, and
disorders such as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, like Kallmann syndrome.
Haemophilia and Thrombosis panel (22 mutations)
Haemophilia and Thrombosis panel is available upon request and could be beneficial to couples or individuals with more than one miscarriage.
eg. Oocyte harvesting at a young age to preserve fertility
Assisted reproductive technology
eg. In vitro fertilization
WHAT IS INFERTILITY?
Infertility is the inability to achieve and maintain a pregnancy and is considered a major
disease of the reproductive system. Infertility affects approximately 1 in 6 couples worldwide.
In couples experiencing pregnancy delay, male infertility accounts for about 35% and female infertility for about 45% of the cases.
The remaining cases are caused by a combination of male and female factor. 10-15% of men and women have
genetic changes associated with infertility. Infertility genetic testing can identify these mutations, providing
your healthcare provider with invaluable knowledge that will help them choose the best treatment plan for you.
