 Now, You can Actually Check Out Your Baby Before Conception
Now couples can get a peek of how their unborn child would look and get to know the potential health and physical characteristics of the baby even before it is conceived thanks to a new technology developed by a Princeton University researcher.

Known as Matchright, the technology virtually mixes the DNA of the couples and provides them with a glimpse of the physical traits of the unborn child along with information regarding any potential genetic diseases that the child may inherit.

The technology will be made available at two fertility clinics in the US later this month and will be useful for mothers to screen out sperm donors who pose a greater risk the child inheriting genetic diseases.

The technology has been developed and marketed by GenePeeks, which has been co-founded by Princeton University's Lee Silver.
