Mira is the next step in fertility tracking and analysis. We’re a team of biologists and engineers who believe that science and technology should be used to improve patients’ lives. We use the latest developments in science and technology to give patients laboratory-grade, real-world data that they can easily track and use. Patients can share this valuable knowledge with their healthcare providers to help them make more personalized health decisions.
The Mira Fertility tracking system is a palm-sized fertility hormone monitoring system with smartphone connectivity that provides quantitative hormone measurements and ovulation/fertile window prediction at home, helping women conceive, avoid pregnancy, and track cycles. Mira also enables research and detailed diagnostics on hormonal fluctuations, providing easy access to high resolution laboratory-grade measurements that are hard to obtain with traditional methods. Mira opens more opportunities for telemedicine, reduces hormone test overload, and helps physicians build a precise plan of care for each patient by giving them a tool that tracks full cycles and enables data collection throughout the treatment timeline. Digital health tracking solutions may provide incredibly efficient mechanisms for running the day-to-day of practices and improve their outcomes.
More than 50% couples found that they had been trying to conceive at the wrong time after they began tracking their fertility hormone levels. Tracking both Luteinizing Hormone and estrogen allows the detection of both the full fertile window and ovulation. These hormone levels are relevant in IVF, menopause, hormone imbalances such as PCOS, and other conditions.
Mira is right for women who have the following goals:
• Trying to conceive
• Trying to avoid pregnancy
• Natural family planning
• Cycle tracking
• Managing irregular cycles, PCOS, or hormone imbalance
• Tracking hormones for fertility treatments
• Tracking estrogen during perimenopause
The monitoring system includes test wands to sample urine at home and a reusable, palm-sized analyzer that uses patented technology to quantitatively track fertility hormone levels such as Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Estrogen-3-glucosidonic acid (E3G) and syncs data to the Mira App.
With greater than 99% accuracy in detecting the LH-surge (a primary indicator of ovulation) and the fertile window, patients have confidence in finding their peak fertile window and maximizing their chances of conception.
In the figure, 160 Samples for LH testing and 104 samples for HCG testing were prepared. the samples were analyzed with Mira Analyzer and Abbott ARCHITECT i2000SR (lab-grade analyzer) respectively by corresponding kit or reagent. The accuracy of the Mira analyzer and the correlation with Abbott ARCHITECT i2000SR were calculated.
Recently, Mira received FDA registration for the home test that measures actual estrogen levels. Mira is launching the Estrogen (Mira Fertility Plus) and Progesterone test wands. Together with the existing LH test, these wands will provide even more accurate knowledge about a patient’s fertile window and better ovulation confirmation, enable deep insight into patients’ fertility levels and cycles, and reveal red flags such as hormone imbalances, irregular cycles, and PCOS early. We are currently running natural family planning studies.
Ovulation usually happens 24 to 36 hours after the LH surge. Tracking LH allows patients to time intercourse to take adventage of this high fertility period and gives them the best chance at getting pregnant.
Estrogen tracking allows detection of the full fertile window, including the days before an LH surge. Monitoring may also help doctors diagnose menstrual problems, uncover the cause of infertility (the inability to get pregnant) in certain patients, or monitor infertility treatments.
A progesterone test confirms ovulation and can also help to check the health of a pregnancy. It's important for someone who uses the fertility awareness method of birth control to confirm that ovulation happens.
The rate and amount that hCG goes up early in pregnancy can give information about pregnancy and fetal health. It is often used to track early signs of miscarriage, fetal develooment, and birth defects.
A high level of FSH ts a signal that ovaries don't have many eggs left. FSH testing is helpful for menopause and fertility evaluation when a woman is not ovulating.
Mira is the only FDA and CE certified, at-home diagnostic device that covers every stage of women’s health testing from fertility, pregnancy, fetal health, ovarian reserve and menopause tracking. The same Mira Analyzer works with multiple test wands.
Because every woman is unique, the quantitative hormone data that Mira provides is extremely useful to precisely track cycles in a personalized and accurate way. Mira is especially helpful for people who struggle to conceive, have irregular cycles, PCOS, or hormone imbalances. Regular Ovulation Prediction Kits (OPKs) detect ovulation based on a fixed cut-off LH value, which may not be appropriate because every woman and every cycle can be different. Ultimately, in such cases OPKs can both lead to detection of false peaks, and to missed ovulation peaks.
See what experts in the medical field are saying about Mira
“The MIRA monitor is a promising option for fertility monitoring. The ability to test on any day and at various times as needed, as well as the ability to detect when hormones change during various circumstances like the postpartum period and irregular cycles, will be a welcome advantage for the future of fertility monitoring.”
“As female hormonal levels change according to the menstrual cycle, the knowledge of hormonal event such ovulation renders women the confidence and freedom in decision making when a reliable home test device is available.”
“My favorite way to track ovulation right now is Mira Fertility. It is high lab-grade quality hormone testing at home. My favorite thing about this technology, the App, and the whole system is that it really takes the guesswork out of ovulation tracking.”
