Pre Implantation Genetic Diagnosis


PGD for single gene diseases is an early diagnosis of an embryo prior to transfer to the uterus. Therefore, prior to establishment of pregnancy an analysis of DNA of the embryo through a PGD test will help in diagnosing any single gene disorders or mutations. PGD helps couples who have an increased risk for a genetic disease, to have a healthy pregnancy.

The following list is a panel for which the PGD test is already developed:
