Genetic testing

What is pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT)?

Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is a sophisticated scientific technique which can be used to test embryos for either a specific known single gene condition or chromosome variation.

This enables only chromosomally healthy embryos or those unaffected by a specific disorder to be selected for transfer during an IVF cycle, maximising the chance of a healthy baby.

Up to 70% of embryos created, either via natural conception or IVF don’t survive the first 3 months of pregnancy and many don’t achieve implantation because of those two reasons.

IVFAustralia offers an internationally recognised pre-implantation genetics program, managed by Australia’s leading pre-implantation genetics laboratory Virtus Diagnostics.

 

Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is a sophisticated scientific technique which can be used to test embryos for either a specific known genetic condition or chromosome variation.

Next generation sequencing is a pre-implantation genetic testing technique that screens all 24 chromosomes in a developing embryo, enabling our scientists to select only embryos with a healthy chromosome profile to transfer.

Pre-implantation genetic testing with Karyomapping is a highly sophisticated scientific technique that can test embryos for the presence of a single gene disorder.

IVFAustralia’s inhouse CF screening program provides a fast result following a simple blood test of one partner.

IVFAustralia runs a dedicated in-house Genetics Clinic for patients who wish to discuss the possibility of genetic testing, either for a specific condition or for chromosomal variations, to minimise their chance of passing on a genetic condition to a child.
