PGDA NGS for monogenic diseases

What is PGD ONE™?

PGD ONE™ is a test that detects the genetic defects (mutations) inherited by a child from their parents. DNA material from embryos is analysed prior to transfer to the uterus, that is, before the woman actually becomes pregnant.

The test can be carried out on material collected by biopsy in the 3rd (blastomere) or 5th/6th (trophectoderm cells) day of the embryo culture. Because of the risk of misdiagnosis caused by the pollution of sperm when using standard in vitro fertilization, the ICSI procedure is recommended. Any diagnosis of PGD ONE™ is treated individually and preceded by an examination of the material from the prospective parents. Under the procedure, a frozen embryos transfer (FET) is required.

Why is it worth to perform PGD ONE™?

  • Possibility of diagnosing any known genetic-based monogenic disease at the embryo stage, and reducing the risk of its occurrence in your child
  • Possibility of conducting a PGDA NGS 360°™ (Preimplantation Genetic Screening) from a single sample (single biopsy) at the same time – reducing the risk of monogenic diseases and genetic defects resulting from an abnormal number of chromosomes

What are the indications for PGD ONE™?
  • People with a genetic test result confirming a clinical diagnosis of monogenic disease
  • People with a genetic test result confirming the presence of mutation carriers
  • The presence of inherited genetic diseases or a history of specific mutation in the family

PGD ONE™ is individually designed preimplantation genetic diagnosis for particular patients in order to exclude transmission to descendant a genetic feature proven to be a cause of disease by test results from genetic diagnostics laboratory. Performing PGD ONE™ does not exclude risk of genetic disease, which may be resulted from other factors, e.g. de novo mutations, undiagnosed mutations, or other genetic diseases.
