"Every second is of infinite value."
YONI Solutions is a start-up that believes in the possibility of increasing the success rates of IVF and having a healthy pregnancy through the analysis of the vaginal microbiome.
"We believe that every women who wants to have a child, should be able to".
With the evolution of society, women tend to become pregnant later and, most importantly, do not want to lose their time.
Recent studies reveal a link between vaginal microbiome and Reproductive Treatments, in other words, the bacteria of the vagina and reproductive tract, affect the chances of getting pregnant.
Through a technology that combines bioinformatics and statistical modeling, we are able to profile the components of the vaginal microbiome which are influencing the procedure of IVF, in a precise and time-efficient manner.
Time is precious and each day counts. That is the reason why we aim to support patients and IVF centers by providing a better understanding of the vaginal microbiome and together guide the patient, optimising her chances of having a successful procedure and a healthy pregnancy.
Our first objective is the development of a test to assess the receptivity of a woman to get pregnant through IVF.
Organisation and Team
We are working to create the best consumer experience and medical success, but most importantly to make women's health better. Working alongside with our customers we develop the solution that best fits their needs, to undergo a procedure with a higher chance of a positive outcome for a healthy pregnancy.

"I believe that vaginal microbiota can provide the means to screen for diseases of the lower genital tract as well as the entire female reproductive system. These organs and structures are interconnected.
After reviewing studies surrounding the microbiome, personally performing the screening and treatment of genital infections, discussing with colleagues in this area, and pursuing a specialisation in pathologies that affect the genital tract, my conviction has only grown. I believe we can achieve more in this environment if we understand better how it works.
Studying the vaginal flora may, not only optimizes the treatment of infectious diseases, but also allow us to understand why they arise, what happens when they happen repetitively and present resistance to treatments. In addition, today we have numerous studies that point out how the vaginal microbiota may be linked to endometrial microbiota and how both can influence the outcome of female infertility treatments, increase the success of In Vitro Fertilization procedures and decrease the rates of treatment of infections during pregnancy.
The benefits of studying vaginal microbiome in the face of new technologies only increases and there is no reason not to try to do the best for women around the world. What kind of bacterias may be linked to reproductive tract that have not been seen yet? How are those ones linked to infertility? What should we demonstrate to improve the probiotics develop and make it a trustful reality? "

"A science is only as good as the precision of its measurement tools!" I therefore dedicated my life to developing new measurement tools, and improving the precision of existing ones.
To understand the human microbiome, find links with health and disease, as well as develop solutions we need better measurement tools.
Empowering couples to have children when they want, should be a fundamental capacity of our civilisation. I believe that through better measurements, can we achieve this goal. Which is why I decided to put my technical knowledge and ability to manage scientific teams into YONI.
