Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) for single gene disorders is a powerful genetic test to screen embryos that are at risk ofdeveloping a serious genetic disease.
Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is used to identify embryos which are free of any chromosomal abnormalities. PGS offers comprehensive analysis of 24 chromosomes including X & Y to detect any chromosomal aneuploidies that might be present in the embryo.
At iGenetic, PGD is done to screen for most common genetic disorders which are Downs' syndrome, alpha and beta Thalessemia, Sickle cell anemia, Muscular dystrophy, G6PD and Cystic fibrosis.
