What is Preimplantation genetic testing?
Passing on genetic disorders can be a concern if you are trying to conceive. At Melbourne IVF, part of Virtus Diagnostics, you will have access to world leading preconception screening and genetic testing.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) or Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) are highly sophisticated scientific techniques developed to test embryos for specific genetic or chromosomal abnormalities prior to implantation and pregnancy.
Our internationally recognised PGS program at Melbourne IVF continues to be a leader in the development of PGS testing in Australia. In 2010, we introduced 24Sure Array CGH technology which was originally pioneered by our specialist team in the late 1990s. Today it continues to offer the most scientifically advanced technology to screen embryos for chromosomal abnormalities.
