Let’s start with PGT abbreviation – Preimplantation Genetic Testing. This is a set of laboratory methods that allows you to analyze embryos obtained with IVF for various genetic disorders.
Did you know that according to the World Health Organization, the older a woman is, the higher is the risk of having a baby with chromosome abnormalities – regardless of the method of fertilization.
This can lead to severe genetic defects in the fetus, including:
- Down syndrome
- Klineferter syndrome
- Turner syndrome
- Patau syndrome and other
The effectiveness of fertility treatments can be significantly reduced due to genetic abnormalities in the embryos, which is one of the main reasons for the failure of IVF programs.
Specially for our clients, Lada clinic provides the highest quality services in the field of genetic testing!
PGT is performed to ensure optimal selection of embryos for transfer into the uterine cavity before a woman actually gets pregnant.
In order to reduce the number of failed IVF attempts and increase the effectiveness of IVF, it is necessary to perform PGT on all 24 chromosomes.
Our specialists use the most modern and sensitive tool for testing the human genome – NGS (next generation sequencing), which is based on determining the DNA sequence, which allows to decipher the genetic information encoded in the DNA of the embryo. Thanks to this method, fertility specialists and geneticists have gained unprecedented diagnostic capabilities!
This gives doctors a unique opportunity to help couples to eliminate the risks of genetic disorders for their children.
