About the Service:
Preimplantation genetic screening is a process that is used to identify the genetic defects in embryos created through In vitro fertilization.
It is composed of a group of genetic assays that are used to evaluate the embryo before it is transferred to the uterus.
Preimplantation genetic testing uses just a few cells from the early embryo, usually at the blastocyst stage.
The main purpose of preimplantation genetic testing is to test embryos for whole chromosome abnormalities. It should traditionally be offered to all patients undergoing IVF treatments.
