Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Blastocyst Biopsy

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a groundbreaking technique to identify genetic defects in embryos from IVF procedures. The procedure is performed by obtaining a cell from the embryo; this cell is analyzed. The removal of the cell can be performed through one of three techniques: polar body bio ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Haplotyping

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure used in embryos obtained through in vitro fertilization. There are three main techniques of PGD: FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization), PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and haplotyping. Haplotyping is the latest developed technique and invol ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH)

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, or PGD, is a technique to detect defects in the early stages of an embryo, before it is transplanted to the mother's womb. PGD may be performed employing several methods, including the FISH analysis, the PCR analysis or the comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Cleavage-Stage Embryo Biopsy

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a technique used to confirm the presence of genetic defects in embryos that are created through in vitro fertilization prior to their implantation in the mother's womb. This is generally done when one or both parents have a genetic abnormality. The embryo is tes ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Limitation of Single Cell Analysis

Embryonic testing for IVF embryos in the form of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, or PGD testing, is recommended when either the mother or father or both of the IVF partners are known to be affected by genetic abnormalities. This includes scenarios wherein the partners seeking IVF treatment are m ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Chromosomal Abnormalities

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is the procedure used during preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), mostly in combination with in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo screening. In vitro fertilization is the process of mixing and fertilizing the female eggs cells and sperm outside of the ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Polymerase Chain Reaction

PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, is one of the few pre-pregnancy genetic testing methods that can help to decode genetic disorders at the embryonic stage. This essentially means that the IVF couple has a better chance of being implanted with healthier embryos, i.e. embryos free from genet ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Self-Correction

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is when tests are performed on a pregnant women to determine if the embryo carries a defective gene. The testing is especially valuable when one or both of the parents is carrying a known genetic abnormality.This is different from certain other testing known as pre ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Polar Body Biopsy

The use of PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, during IVF treatment ensures that healthy embryos, free from genetic disorders can be identified. To test the embryos, the IVF technicians need to extract a few cells from the embryo. A common method of doing this is removing a single cell from ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Technical Limitations

PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, is essentially a form of genetic testing that is recommended as a part of IVF. PGD testing is recommended to IVF couples when there is a likelihood of a genetic disorder being passed on to the embryo. PGD is conducted in the form of extensive embryo testin ...Continue Reading
