Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis

Preimplantation Genetic Testing, or PGT, is a method of testing embryos for specific genetic and chromosomal variations, so we can select unaffected embryos prior to implantation and pregnancy. Since its introduction, IVFAustralia’s PGT program has helped hundreds of couples conceive healthy babies through IVF treatment. By only transferring an embryo that has been diagnosed as unaffected or free of a specific disorder, we can maximise the chance of a healthy baby.

At IVFAustralia we can test the embryos in a number of different ways, depending on the particular circumstances. Advanced Embryo Selection is used to screen embryos for chromosomal variations and Karyomapping for known single gene disorders.
