Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Laboratory


The Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Laboratory performs biopsies on embryos and oocytes resulting from IVF treatment to diagnose heritable genetic conditions (PGD) and chromosomal abnormalities (preimplantation genetic screening/PGS). CRM's PGD laboratory uses the most advanced genetic sequencing technology, and can test for hundreds of genetic diseases.
