Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) consists in separating a cell from the embryo—which continues its development without this cell— in order to analyze the genetic information of such cell, since it is the same as the rest of the embryo. The purpose is to check whether there is any genetic abnormality before carrying out the embryo transfer into the woman’s womb.

The most advanced assisted reproductive techniques are focused on the selection of the spermatozoa, the embryos to transfer and the decrease in the risk of multiple pregnancies
Embryoscope is an incubation system that allows taking images of the embryo at any moment. This way, the complete development of the embryo can be observed without any need to vary the conditions in which it’s immersed.
The INVO method consists of a device containing eggs and sperm together with culture medium. The device is inserted inside the woman’s body so that embryo development occurs. Later, embryos will be observed and the healthiest-looking one will be transferred.
