Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is diagnosis of a genetic condition prior to achievement of a pregnancy. This form of genetic testing is performed on eggs or embryos during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. PGD was first performed in the early 1990's as a way for couples to prevent the pregnancy of a child with genetic disease. Currently, we are able to perform PGD for many genetic conditions including single gene disorders and for chromosomal abnormalities. At the Reproductive Genetics Institute, we have been performing PGD since it became available in 1990. We pioneered the polar body removal technology and are one of the most active centers offering PGD in the world.
