Carrier Screening for Inherited Disorders
We understand that a positive result is an added stress for your family. If you find that you and/or your partner is a carrier of a genetic condition, there are many options available to you. In vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a common choice amongst couples who are at high risk of having an affected child. PGD is a test that screens embryos for a specific disorder prior to implantation. The test is designed to detect single mutations in the embryo based on the parents’ genetic report, allowing physicians to select an embryo that is free of the genetic defect.
