PGD TRS™ preimplantation diagnosis allows examining the cells collected from embryos for the presence of abnormalities resulting from balanced reciprocal translocations in parents. This testing technique is adapted to the needs of a given patient.
PGD diagnosis for translocations consists in the examination of the embryo’s genetic material for the presence of abnormal fragments or entire chromosomes involved in translocation. It has to be stressed that carriers of chromosomal translocation are also exposed to higher risk of disorders in the number of other chromosomes, unrelated to chromosomes involved in translocation. It is recommended to complement the PGD TRS™ targeting the chromosomes involved in translocation with the comprehensive diagnosis for aneuploidies in all chromosomes – PGS NGS 360°™.
