Preimplantation genetic testing for single gene (PGT-M) is a testing when one or both genetic parents has a known genetic abnormality. The testing is performed on an embryo to determine if it also carries a genetic abnormality. This serves to prevent certain genetic diseases or disorders from being passed on to the child.
NGG could develop testing virtually for any disorders with very low rejection rate (<1%).
The most common single gene disorders are:
