Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)We prevent babies from being born with inherited diseases.
To perform this procedure, an embryo cell must be extracted and analyzed using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques. Through this diagnosis, 95% of chromosomal diseases can be ruled out. -
PGD with embryos.
After in vitro fertilization and before transferring to the uterus, the genetic material is studied to detect specific alterations, usually when the embryos are on the third day of their development.
To analyze this genetic material, a biopsy is performed on each embryo, differentiating those that are healthy from those that present a specific genetic disorder; so that only healthy embryos are transferred to the uterus and the baby can be born healthy.
