Preimplantation Genetic Testing

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. The chromosomal constitution of the embryos can be investigated and single gene conditions can be identified by Karyomapping.
