Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is done on an embryo formed in vitro, in the laboratory. A genetic test is done on 1 or 2 cells collected from an embryo in a sufficiently advanced stage of development.

Only healthy embryos are selected to be transferred into a woman’s uterus.
