Clarity Genetics Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic Disorders (PGT-M)
The Clarity Genetics Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic Disorders (PGT-M) can determine whether any specific genetic conditions you tested positive for are present in your IVF embryos. This will allow your IVF doctor to select only those unaffected by the disorder for transfer, nearly preventing it from being passed to your child. This service is a follow-up screen for couples or individuals who have taken a Clarity Genetics panel recommended for them by their physician.
What Is It?
After in vitro fertilization, a couple can effectively screen any resulting embryos for a single gene condition using PGT-M (preimplantation genetic testing for monogenic disorders). PGT-M is used to screen for genetic conditions such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, Tay-Sachs disease, Fragile X syndrome, and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Since the Clarity Genetics Super Panel screens for these conditions, only couples who screen positive for the same genetic condition need to undergo PGT-M screening.
Who Should Take It?
• Couples whose carrier screening identify them as carriers of a genetic disease or disorder
Why Clarity Genetics?

This will allow the IVF doctor to select only those unaffected by the disorder for the transfer, drastically reducing the risk of having an affected child. The Clarity PGT-M can screen for over 120 genetic conditions and offers best-in-class accuracy.
