Celmatix is a startup designed by women for women. Founded in 2009, Celmatix has quickly made a name for itself as a company dedicated to helping women with fertility issues. Workers at Celmatix are passionate about using the latest and greatest in gene therapy and technology to discover each patient’s susceptibility to various fertility problems.
Using the power of big data, Celmatix has designed technologies that can determine when and how a patient should conceive a child. Industry experts believe this brand of personalized care will most likely define the 21st-century fertility care industry.
The Revolutionary Services Developed By Celmatix
Piraye Yurttas Beim, who holds a Ph.D. in molecular biology, founded Celmatix after facing infertility issues in her private life. When Dr. Beim was only 30 years old, she discovered she had a diminished ovarian reserve. Thankfully, Beim is now a happy mother of two, but from the day of her diagnosis onwards, she decided to focus all her scientific efforts on helping other women with infertility issues.
It took her about eight years of hard study, but finally, Celmatix was born. Celmatix now offers a revolutionary kind of genetic test called the Fertilome. This test takes a deep look at each patient’s DNA and examines every woman’s potential to conceive and give birth to a healthy child.
The Fertilome test specifically looks into 49 variants within 32 genes related to fertility. Just a few issues it could reveal include polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, and primary ovarian insufficiency. Tests will show what’s the best time to conceive, whether or not it’s best for a woman to freeze her eggs, or whether or not the patient should opt for in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Celmatix is also well known in the fertility industry for its Polaris product. Polaris is now used by many fertility specialists to compare a patient’s genetic profile with thousands of other patients and determine the best fertility scenarios. In addition to these tests and services, Celmatix has been active in the research community.
With two CLIA-certified labs in New Jersey and Brooklyn, the company is well respected in the scientific community, and it has shared its research at over 30 medical conferences.
Beim’s Vision For The Future Of Fertility Care
Beim has big plans not only for the future of her company but also for the future of the American fertility industry. The dream that keeps Beim going day in and day out is to make the Fertilome test a standard part of a women’s health screening. During an interview, Beim told reporters that she believes
“the way we talk about and treat reproductive conditions and infertility will be unrecognizable in 10 years.”
It might shock some Americans to learn that 7 million American women now have issues in conceiving. The fertility industry now makes around $9 billion each year. Beim is hoping her new technologies will bring fertility treatment into the 21st century by offering women big data solutions to their fertility problems.
A few doctors who have used either Celmatix’s Polaris and/or Fertilome have told reporters that the technologies are “game changers.” Dr. Francisco Arredondo, a fertility expert based in Texas, uses Celmatix’s Polaris on a daily basis with his clients and has told reporters that:
“Polaris allows us to be able to counsel patients with evidence based plans tailored to a patient’s specific needs and circumstances.”
With more doctors like Dr. Arredondo singing Celmatix’s praises, Polaris and Fertilome will most likely play a vital role in the next generation of fertility care.
How To Get A Celmatix Test
The company Celmatix is currently headquartered in New York City, but anyone can seek a Fertilome test. Any patient interested in getting a Fertilome test should consult with their primary care doctor. The physician should be able to easily refer a patient to get a Fertilome test done.
Celmatix told reporters they designed the Fertilome test to be “actionable,” which means everyone who gets this test done will learn how to take productive steps towards helping with their fertility issues right away. Just a few of these steps could include getting in contact with a fertility expert, changing negative habits, or even freezing eggs.
All Fertilome tests are designed to highlight exactly what each patient needs to know if she wants the highest success rate in conceiving a child.
