Univfy, a privately-held company based in Los Altos, Ca., aims to support fertility patients every step of their journey towards building a healthy family. Univfy's current product suite offers online In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Prediction Tests to provide an accurate and personalized prediction of the probability of having a baby with IVF.
Though IVF is the most effective fertility treatment for many, patients often struggle with decisions over a procedure that costs thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for a chance of success that seems like a roll of the dice. Univfy's product suite offers a unique insight. The Univfy Program is the only online site where fertility patients can learn their chances of IVF success based on validated analysis of their personal reproductive health data. Univfy's predictions are validated by our research to be more than 1,000 times more accurate than age-estimates (likelihood scale), the current standard. Based in Los Altos, Ca., Univfy was founded in 2009 by former Stanford University professor Mylene Yao, M.D., and Stanford University professor Wing Wong, Ph.D.
