Nowadays, next generation sequencing (NGS) is the most effective technique available for the study of the genome. For this reason, it has become an important instrument for preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
It offers comprehensive information concerning aneuploidies, genetic mutations and unbalanced translocations in embryos
It creates a reproductive opportunity for couples who are exposed to an increased risk of having a child with a specific monogenic disorder
Our PGD by NGS Panels
DNA samples from both parents and additional family members are requested to testing.
PGD-SEQ allows simultaneously detecting different point mutations and different SNPs surrounding it. This way it eliminates the risk of misdiagnosis by ADO phenomenon and identifies which embryos are affected, carrier or unaffected.
