Pre-conception genetic screening allows you to make informed choices as you grow your family. Genetic carrier screening is recommended if you are starting to try to conceive and can also be completed in early pregnancy. Whether you want to know if you and partner are genetic carriers for certain conditions, or you’re looking to screen yourself individually for peace of mind there are a range of screening options to help you understand any chance.
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.
Pre-Implantation Genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A)
PGT-A testing using 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 for a specific known genetic condition (PGT-SR/M)
Panorama is a blood-based genetic, prenatal screening test of the pregnant mother that screens for common chromosomal conditions that affect a baby’s health.
