Procedure

Pre-implantation genetic screening requires the woman to go through a regular IVF/ICSI cycle. The embryos created in the laboratory are then biopsied using highly specialized lasers and a single cell of an embryo is taken out for testing.
These cells are subjected to identify chromosomally normal embryos.
How does it work?
These cells are subjected to identify chromosomally normal embryos.
Step 1. You undergo normal in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment to collect and fertilise your eggs.
Step 2. The embryo is grown in the laboratory for two to three days until the cells have divided and the embryo consists of around eight cells.
Step 3. A trained embryologist removes one or two of the cells (blastomeres) from the embryo.
Step 4. The cells are tested to see if the embryo from which they were removed contains the gene that causes the genetic condition in the family.
Step 5. The embryo unaffected by the condition is transferred to the womb to allow it to develop.
Step 6. Any suitable remaining unaffected embryos can be frozen for later use. Those embryos that are affected by the condition are allowed to perish or, with your consent, used for research.

Baby’s Safety:
The biopsy does not harm the growth of the baby or cause any abnormality in the baby, if proper equipment and trained personnel perform the same.
