Ovation Genetics | Ovation Fertility Preimplantation Genetic Test Failures and Complaints

Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports that a significant number of recent preimplantation genetic tests (PGT) performed by Ovation Genetics / Ovation Fertility on IVF patients’ embryo samples are unreliable and inconclusive. These tests are performed on viable embryos before implantation, seeking to confirm the presence or absence of serious birth defects and other illnesses. Individuals have reported receiving PGT results from Ovation Genetics / Ovation Fertility and making significant family-planning decisions based on these results, including the implantation or destruction of precious embryos, only to later discover the reports they received were faulty.

If you have had preimplantation genetic testing performed on your embryos and received faulty results, we urge you to talk to Women’s Health Lawyer and Lieff Cabraser partner Sarah R. London today about your rights and potential recovery.

    Fertility, IVF, and Embryo/Egg Loss Injuries

    Lieff Cabraser represents fertility patients who have been injured by cryogenic storage facilities, fertility clinics, genetic testing laboratories, and IVF supply manufacturers nationwide.

    In June 2021, plaintiffs won a $15 million verdict in the San Francisco Pacific Fertility Center cryogenic tank failure egg & embryo destruction lawsuit. The jury found the freezer tank manufacturer to be most at fault, though the clinic also shared some of the blame for the tragic losses. In the 2018 complaint, patients alleged the clinic destroyed or seriously damaged hundreds of cryogenically preserved eggs and embryos stored at its facility in San Francisco after liquid nitrogen depletion in one of its storage tanks.

    Lieff Cabraser currently represents families devastated by contaminated Natera preimplantation genetic tests. Because the genetic tests are performed on viable embryos after thawing and before implantation, seeking to confirm the presence or absence of serious birth defects and other illnesses, these faulty test results leave families with devastating losses and impaired future family planning.
