Technology

Igenomix uses state of the art technology for PGD.

  • Igenomix uses a multiple detection approach to ensure the most reliable results.
  • Using direct detection, PCR is used to detect the specific disease causing mutation.
  • Linkage analysis uses PCR to detect informative STR markers that are linked to the disease-causing gene.
  • Our multiple detection strategy minimizes the chances of no results or misdiagnosis due to allele drop out (ADO).
  • With our technology, our PGD testing is 98-99% accurate.
  • Our technology and experience allows to analyse 24 chromosomes, in a 12 hours procedure.
