Helping To Find The Right Match


Fenomatch uses an algorithm to best match donors with recipients.


How does it work?

First, the doctor uploads a photograph of the patient to our platform. Then, our unique algorithm extracts over 12,000 data points, focusing on facial features which are phenotypic (e.g., those which have a genetic basis and are passed on from parent to child via DNA). Some examples of phenotypic features include the shape of the eyes, and the relative size of the facial features.

Once the AI has analysed the recipient’s face, the same analysis is performed on the faces of the potential donors. Then, a list of donors ordered by facial resemblance is presented to the doctor. The technique is compatible with all the industry-standard filters like ethnicity, eye colour, hair type, etc. and genetic screening, and it helps provide the doctor with an additional tool to use when it comes to donor selection.

Beyond the industry standard

Aside from our stand-out facial matching feature, the Fenomatch platform also allows users to sort donors by blood type, ethnicity, skin colour, body type, level of studies and interests, as well as other variables. And what’s more, we have one-click genetic compatibility testing.


Luis Arenaz, CEO of Fenomatch, states that,

“We understand how complicated the process can be for someone undergoing fertility treatment. There are always going to be fears, doubts, and questions to be asked. We’re lucky enough to be able to take care of one of those problems: with Fenomatch we can guarantee that the donor selection process has been carried out by an experienced medical professional using the latest technology.”

The latest feature to be added to the platform is designed to help minimise human error:

“We have ethnicity detection, which alerts a user when a discrepancy is found between a donor’s stated ethnicity and the ethnicity of the person in the photograph.”

The doctor or embryologist is then able to check the photograph to confirm the ethnicity.

The main objective of the platform, which is available to clinics and banks around the world, is to provide scientific criteria to medical professionals for the donor selection process.This helps give patients peace of mind at a time which can be emotionally tumultuous.


Luis Arenaz says,

“We’ve been lucky enough to help over 7000 families since our algorithm was first introduced. That’s something my team and I are very proud of”.
