Pre-Implementation Genetic Testing (PGT)

Are you and your partner struggling to conceive? Or perhaps you're already undergoing IVF treatments? Our pre-implementation genetic testing (PGT) is here to offer you a personalized approach to fertility care, tailored specifically to your genetic profile.

What Is Pre-Implementation Genetic Testing (PGT)?

Pre-Implementation Genetic Testing (PGT) is a cutting-edge technique used in conjunction with IVF treatments. It involves screening your embryos for genetic conditions before they are implanted.

By identifying potential genetic issues early on, we can improve the success rates of your fertility treatments and reduce associated risks.

Different Types ofPre-Implementation Genetic Testing

1. PGT-A (Pre-implantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies):

PGT-A detects chromosomal abnormalities that could impact your embryo’s viability.

2. PGT-M (Pre-implantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic disorders):

PGT-M screens for specific genetic disorders that you or your partner may carry.

3. PGT-SR (Pre-implantation Genetic Testing for Structural Rearrangements):

PGT-SR identifies chromosomal structural rearrangements that could affect embryo development.

PGT Within the IVF Treatment Process

PGT, or Pre-implantation Genetic Testing, is performed alongside the IVF treatment process. This involves a few key steps that are crucial in ensuring the health and success of your pregnancy.

Firstly, during your initial consultation with our genetic counselors, you will discuss any potential genetic disorders or conditions that you or your partner may carry. This is followed by a simple blood test to analyze your genetic profile.

The next step involves undergoing an IVF cycle, where embryos are created through fertilization in a laboratory setting. During this process, embryo biopsy is performed, which involves removing cells from the embryos for further testing.

The cells are then analyzed using advanced genetic techniques, such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) or Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), to identify any potential genetic abnormalities.

Based on the results, the healthiest embryos are selected for transfer into the uterus. This personalized approach helps increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
