What is embryo biopsy?

Embryo biopsy is the procedure by which one or more cells are extracted from an embryo, called blastomeres, in order to analyze its DNA and look for any genetic alteration.

The blastomere biopsy is performed during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, when the embryos are in day 3 or 5 of development, for the realization of a preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
