PGD (Pre Implantation Geneticdiagnosis) is used to check for chromosomal abnormalities in embryos, while PGS is specifically used to test for aneuploidy, or abnormal chromosome number.
PGD allows for the detection of specific genetic mutations in embryos, which can be useful for families with a history of genetic disorders. This technique involves studying the DNA of eggs or embryos to identify those that carry certain mutations or abnormalities.
In some cases, PGD can also be used for preimplantation sex discernment. This is especially important for families at risk for X-linked diseases, where a single PGD assay can be used to identify the gender of the embryo and prevent the transmission of X-linked Mendelian recessive diseases.
