Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Laboratory

PGD/PGS and IVF

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.
