Reproductive Health Genetic Testing
Make more healthy pregnancies possible with carrier screening prior to your pregnancy, preimplantation genetic testing of your IVF embryos, prenatal genetic testing and cell-free fetal DNA testing.
Preimplantation genetic testing
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which helps identify genetic mutations that could lead to an inherited disease, and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), which helps intended parents identify chromosome problems that could result in a miscarriage are forms of testing.
Chromosome miscarriage testing
The most common cause of miscarriage is abnormalities in chromosomes, accounting for 71 percent of lost pregnancies.
Recurrent pregnancy loss is emotionally devastating. For anyone who has undergone the experience, a laboratory test may be helpful in confirming or ruling out chromosomal abnormalities as a factor in multiple miscarriages.
Preconception carrier screening for genetic diseases
Genetic preconception carrier screening is how scientists can detect genetic mutations associated with hundreds of genetic diseases. All it takes is a simple blood, cheek swab or saliva sample, which is then sent to a lab for analysis.
