Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) for single gene disorders

Detection of parental mutations for single gene disorders, in single blastomeres (day 3 embryo biopsy) or blastocyst cells (day 5 blastocyst biopsy).

The process is comprised of 2 distinct phases:

  • Phase 1: Design and validation of the PGD mutation detection strategy (performed once per case/family)
  • Phase 2: Testing of blastomeres (single blastomeres or blastocyst cells)

Please consult our laboratory in advance, for further information and instructions.

Time required for the completion of the 1st phase may be up to 2 months. It is only after the successful completion of the 1st phase, (for which you will be notified by our laboratory) that the IVF procedure may commence.
