Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis & Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)
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.
