Our Screening Standard

All donors are healthy non-smokers females between the ages of 21 and 29. All our egg donors already passed a series of FDA required screening and examinations. Please feel free to take a look at the a list of examinations and screenings we’ve done on our high standard egg donors:

We try our best to ensure only the good candidate could move forward with AFE program. From time to time we may receive updated information and we will modify the profile accordingly. Our final goal is to gather as much information as possible from the donors to let you know more in-depth information. Because it is our responsibility to make sure you match with your ideal donor. However you should always keep in mind that the entire procedure is anonymous and highly confidential for the purpose of protecting both donor’s and recipient’s privacy. And we would like to emphasize the crucial importance of Egg Donor Genetic Carrier Screening as below.

Egg Donor Genetic Carrier Screening:

We are aware of the strong desire of intended parents to have a smart and healthy baby through our AFE program. By using the most advanced medical equipment and genetic screening technology, we are able to look insight into the chromosome and genetic level of humankind, allowing for the pre-donation genetic assessment of all egg donors. Our screening protocol follows recommendation of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. It is designed to detect genetic mutations associated with a number of hereditary disorders with greater than 99.9‰ accuracy. We use donor’s blood sample and saliva sample to test the genetic disorders. Even though we use the most cutting-edge screening technology, we would not be able to detect all genes. By doing this, we already reduce the majority of genetic risk.
As we know that many of us are the carriers of genes associated with hereditary genetic disease, for example, some people are carriers of recessive genes but these genes express no negative impact on their lives, but it is highly likely that two risky recessive genes carriers may have an unhealthy baby with genetic diseases, these could be nothing and be life threatening. Genetic diseases can be passed on generation by generation. You should keep that in mind that in most cases both the egg donor and the sperm provider must be carriers of the same genetic mutation in order for it has a statistical chance of presenting itself in offspring.

For example, in most cases, if both partners are carriers of the same genetic condition, 25‰ of fetuses will be affected, 50‰ will be carriers of the genetic mutation, and 25‰ will not be carriers of the defect. In some cases like Fragile X, it passes solely through the X chromosome, and females have a 50‰ of passing on the mutation. Here is a simple list of common single gene disorder among Asians:
