Preimplantation genetic testing

We carry out the genetic study of the embryos in order to transfer only the genetically healthy ones

Preimplantation genetic tests (PGT) allow the analysis the DNA of the embryos with which we can detect chromosomal abnormalities, avoiding the transfer to the woman’s uterus of embryos affected by disease such as cystic fibrosis, thalassemia, Down’s syndrome or muscular dystrophy, among others. Thereby, the transmission of hereditary diseases or chromosomal conditions that are not compatible with life is avoided.

There are three types of PGD:

PGT-A, the Preimplantation Genetic Test for aneuploidies detection.

PGT-M, the Preimplantation Genetic Test for the detection of monogenic disorders

PGT-SR, the Preimplantation Genetic Test for the detection of structural rearrangements.

Do you want to know what each type of PGT consists of and in which case it is indicated? Our team will be delighted to explain it to you.

Genetic Testing

Before transfer to the uterus, the genetic materials of the embryo are analyzed to detect genetic alterations.


Each embryo is biopsied and those with a specific congenital disease are discarded.


Between one and two healthy embryos are transferred. Healthy embryos can be frozen.
