Karyomapping offers new way of detecting genetic conditions in IVF embryos

9 enero 2015

Karyomapping has been identified as a viable and cost-effective method of detecting a wide range of genetic diseases in IVF embryos, scientists report. The current method, which involves the use of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) for monogenic disorders (resulting from a single defective gene) has long been recognized as expensive, time-consuming and requires the tailoring of a specific test for each couple and/or disorder.
