Here one of the 8 cells (Blastomere) is aspirated using specific pipette used for PGD with the help of micromanipulator (same equipment used for ICSI). Then the single cell is subjected for genetic testing using their DNA chain to gain further informations. If the cell seems to be normal then the embryo is declared as fit ones to transfer in to uterus. Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) is the latest method of PGD under research in our center.
