Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis - PGD

The principle of preimplantation genetic diagnosis is to find and select for transfer only the embryos without genetic abnormalities. It is possible to identify structural chromosomal defects or monogenic hereditary diseases in the cells (blastomeres) of the early developing embryo.

We cooperate with the Department of medical genetics and the Center of molecular biology and gene therapy.
At present, comparative genome hybridisation (microarrays, array-CGH, a-CGH) is used most frequently for this examinations.
