Embryo Biopsy

Embryo biopsy is the technique applied by the embryologist within an IVF treatment in order to remove a cell or cells from the preimplantation embryos. These cells will be then further examined by a genetic/molecular laboratory in order to receive information on the genetic status of the embryos. Briefly, this technique is utilised in order to select the healthy embryos prior to their transfer into the uterus. Embryos that are carrying genetic disorders or chromosomal aberrations will be excluded from the final selection. READ MORE IN PGD SECTION
