Improve Your Chances, Reduce Your Risk
Prior to implantation, genetic diagnosis is performed to determine any potential “at-risk” embryos: any that exhibit potential genetic conditions that could lead to a disease after birth. Genetic testing is performed on embryos during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. The embryos that have been analyzed and are found to be normal are transferred into the woman’s uterus, where they will hopefully implant and result in the birth of a healthy child.
