Test de compatibilidad genética

The 549 TCG test identifies the presence of genes that causes diseases transmissible to offspring. Carriers are often healthy people, but if both parents are carriers of a mutation of the same gene, they may have a child affected with a particular disease.This test allows us to detect up to 600 diseases.

What happens when a genetic mutation is detected. If detected in only one member of the couple, nothing happens as it is be recessive, if detected in both there is a high risk of having a child affected by the disease

The options in these cases are:
  • Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, to select healthy embryos and continue the process of embryonic transfer.
  • Gamete donation. Substituting the carrier of the genetic abnormality’s gametes with eggs or sperm from a donor who does not carry the mutation.
