The PGD procedure at Ruby Hall Clinic is as follows:

  • A normal in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment is carried out at the Centre in order to collect and fertilise the eggs.
  • The embryo is grown within the laboratory of the Centre for a couple of days until day 5 (Blastocyst stape)
  • A trained embryologist from Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar’s team at Ruby Hall will remove cells from Embryo.
  • These cells are then tested to find out if the embryo itself possesses a particular gene which is responsible for causing the genetic condition in the family. All embryoes are frozen after Biopsy
  • If the diagnostic reveals that the embryo isn’t at risk for the genetic condition, it is transferred back into the womb for further development.
