Customized Single Gene Disorder Testing
PGTseq-M, available only through the Foundation for Embryonic Competence (FEC), is a unique test customized for each family. With PGTseq-M, the FEC can detect genetic alterations associated with specific single gene disorders in an embryo prior to transfer during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
A test as unique as your genetics
A single gene disorder is a disease that is caused by a known alteration or variant in one of the more than 20,000 genes in nearly every cell of the body. A disorder may be passed down in a family or inherited from both members of a couple who are carriers of the same condition.
PGTseq-M is customized to identify the specific disorder(s) of interest in your embryos. By transferring only embryos that do not have the associated genetic alteration(s) or variant(s), families decrease their risk of having a child with that single gene disorder(s). All embryos tested with PGTseq-M will also receive aneuploidy screening with PGTseq-A.
The FEC can accurately test for nearly all single gene disorders, giving you peace of mind as you grow your family.
