Preimplantation genetic diagnostics

Preimplantation genetic diagnostics.

The most recent approach in prenatal testing is the preimplantation genetic diagnosis. It is a process where genetic diagnosis is performed on embryonic cells that have been conceived in vitro, prior to transfer to uterus. This opens us possibility to not transfer the embryos with established genetic abnormality into the uterus. Thus pregnant women do not have to terminate pregnancy due to unfavorable genetic test result.
