Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) Laboratory


The Preimplantation Genetic Testing Laboratory performs biopsies on embryos and oocytes resulting from IVF treatment to diagnose heritable genetic conditions (PGT-M) and chromosomal abnormalities (preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy, PGT-A, or for chromosome rearrangements, PGT-SR). CRM's PGT laboratory uses the most advanced genetic sequencing technology, and can test for hundreds of genetic diseases and/or chromosomal copy number changes in a few or even a single embryonic cell.

For more information on PGT at Cornell's Center for Reproductive Medicine, visit the services' webpage.
