What Can I Learn About My Embryo

ZygoteWhat Kind of Information Can I Find Out about My Embryo?

As with any testing procedure, one of the most commonly asked questions is, “What information will I gain from this test?”

Genesis-24 utilizes computed-generated maps to examine all 24 chromosomes – the 22 non-sex chromosomes plus the two sex chromosomes (X & Y).

Results are interpreted from embryos samples to recognize the following:

  • Chromosomal Duplications – An extra copy of chromosomes can result in conditions such as Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21)
  • Chromosomal Deletions – Missing copies of chromosomes
  • Sex-chromosome Abnormalities – Duplications or deletions of X and Y can result in a multitude of conditions. Commonly known examples of these conditions include Klinefelter Syndrome and Turner Syndrome.
  • Gender Identification – The gender of an embryo can by identified through PGS testing.

PGS is only used to test for chromosomal abnormalities, while PGD is used to test for single gene mutations associated with genetically inherited disease (such as cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s Disease, muscular dystrophy and many more).

The information that is attained from PGS is shared with your IVF physician to provide more information about which embryos have the highest likelihood of resulting in pregnancy.

At Genesis Genetics, our goal is to provide unparalleled testing to help you build a healthy family. To learn more about the Genesis Genetics testing methods, find out more about our scientists, or to ask any questions about the entire process, please contact our laboratory today.
