The test can help identify which embryo carries a normal amount of chromosomal material, and this test is also known as PGD-A or Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (aneuploidy). The test uses structural arrangement technology and detects the affected, unaffected, or carries embryos for a specific disease in a couple who are suffering from any genetic disease or condition. This helps to use an embryo that is not affected by the disease to achieve a healthy pregnancy.
This test helps reduce the risk of passing on inherited conditions like cystic fibrosis or sickle cell anemia. The couple who need this treatment are not infertile but may be suffering from some genetic condition, and help reduce the risk of transferring this disease to their offspring. PGD test is available for almost all inherited diseases or conditions, and when the exact mutation of the genes is known. A unique test is performed for each couple, and the test is designed as per an individual condition.
