A new service for IVF centers

 

The Cytogenetic Department in the First Medical Laboratory, has introduced FISH technique for PGD cases recently

:PGD is important for some cases handled in IVF centers for two main reasons

-1

Screen for common chromosomal aberrations – Down’s syndrome “Trisomy 21”; Patau syndrome “Trisomy 13” ; Edward’s syndrome “Trisomy 18”; and others

-2

Select the sex of the baby (boy or girl) to avoid diseases that are X-linked by selecting the proper baby sex

 

(Material required: one cell from “Planned for transfer” blastomere (6-8 cell stage) fixed on a slide (by special spreading solution

    Results are made available within few hours

The same technique is applied for cases of AMNIOCENTESIS in pregnant mothers having abnormal TRIPLE TEST and suspected of having Down’s syndrome or other chromosomal abnormalities
