PGD of Translocations
 

Translocations and other chromosome rearrangements can be diagnosed by PGD using FISH with custom made probe cocktails involving three to four probes. Test with two probes, offered by other centers, may miss some segregation patterns.

Before a PGD cycle can start, blood studies from the carrier as well as extensive preparation of the test is necessary, and therefore these tests should be scheduled well in advance of the IVF procedure. These tests are coordinated through our genetic counselor.

PGD for translocations can be combined with PGD for aneuploidy, but priority will be given to obtaining translocation results. For preparing and scheduling a PGD case please follow our "PGD for translocation information booklet".
