PGT treatment aims to reduce the chance of passing a specific inherited disorder or a chromosomal abnormality to future children.
PGT is a form of testing carried out during IVF treatment. It is an additional step where the embryos created are biopsied and genetically tested to determine which, if any, of the embryos appear safe for transfer.
Our team carries out embryo biopsy for PGT-M, PGT-SR and PGT-A testing. Waterstone Clinic was the first clinic in Ireland to successfully deliver a baby following embryo biopsy for pre-implantation genetic testing.
Our PGT team will discuss your specific needs with you, and, together with the laboratory and genetic counsellor, will advise you about your specific case. It is essential to know that while PGT aims to reduce your chance of having a child with a specific genetic disorder, it does not test for all birth defects.
