WHAT IS THE PGT?

The preimplantation genetic test (PGT) involves a number of diagnostic techniques that allow us to identify chromosomal or genetic alterations in an embryo before it is transferred to the maternal uterus, which enables healthy children to be born, as well as eradicating any harmful genetic hereditary pathology.

Screening of aneuploidies

What is this technique?

It is a genetic analysis technique in which the 23 pairs of chromosomes are analyzed, in order to choose the embryos that include them all, which can then be transferred to the maternal uterus. The technique used is NGS (Next Generation Sequencing).

What patients would benefit from the test?

  • Patients with repeat abortions
  • Older women
  • Patients with a history of repeated implantation failures
  • Men with severe male factor
  • Men with altered seminal FISH study
  • Low responding patients

Monogenic diseases  

What is this technique?

The preimplantation genetic test of monogenic diseases (PGT-M) allows to study a specific genetic disease in embryos and to choose those healthy embryos which can be transferred to the maternal uterus.

What patients would benefit from this technique?              

Patients affected by or carrying a monogenic disease.

COMB PGD        

What is this technique?        

This technique is the combination of the analysis of the 23 pairs of chromosomes and the study of a monogenic disease.

What patients would benefit from this technique?

Patients that are affected by, or carrying a monogenic disease or exhibiting other indications such as advanced maternal age, repeat abortions, etc.

Structural anomalies

What is this technique?

It is a technique of genetic analysis that studies losses and gains of chromosomal regions, analyzing the 23 pairs of chromosomes as well as the structural anomaly present in some parents. The technique used is NGS (Next Generation Sequencing).

What patients would benefit from this technique?

Patients with translocations, inversions or other chromosomal abnormalities
