Preimplantation Genetic Testing
From comprehensive fertility-related diagnostics to advanced fertility services, we have the solutions for you no matter what your fertility goals are.
Knowing even before you are pregnant
More IVF couples are now opting for genetic testing to give them the added assurance of a safe pregnancy and ultimately a healthy baby of their own. This is also an option for couples looking for family balancing through gender identification of their embryos.
Types of PGT for your future baby
PGT-A for Chromosome Aneuploidy
Looking into all 23 pairs of chromosomes of your embryos, PGT-A determines if there is any occurrence of abnormal chromosome numbers, meaning if there are any extra (trisomy, such as Down’s syndrome) or missing chromosomes (monosomy) within your embryos. An embryo that carries abnormal chromosome numbers is aneuploid, while ones with normal chromosome results are euploids.
PGT-A for Gender Identification
The 23 pairs of chromosomes tested in PGT-A includes the chromosome pair X and Y because it also screens for sex-linked genetic disorders such as hemophilia, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Fragile X syndrome. Inadvertently in the process, this test reveals the gender of each embryo with female embryos carrying two X chromosomes and male embryos one chromosome each of X and Y.
PGT-M for Monogenic (Single Gene) Disorders
Hereditary single gene disorders such as thalassemia, sickle-cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, and many others can be prevented from affecting your next generation. With the biopsied cells sent for PGT-M testing, the results will identify the embryos that are free of a particular known disorder. These embryos will be the ones slated for transfer into your or your chosen surrogate’s womb.
