Breaking the Genetic Chain:
PGT-M is a revolutionary genetic screening technique that offers hope to couples who are carriers of single-gene disorders and are at high risk of passing them on to their offspring. This cutting-edge technology allows parents to detect genetic disorders in their embryos and significantly decrease the chances of having a child with an inherited genetic disorder.
Who needs PGT-M?
Common conditions tested by PGT-M
A blood disorder that reduces the production of haemoglobin, leading to anaemia and other complications.
Sickle cell anaemia
A genetic condition that affects the production of haemoglobin, leading to anaemia and other health problems.
A disorder that affects the lungs and digestive system, causing breathing difficulties and other complications.
Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
ADPKD is a genetic disorder characterized by the formation of multiple fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys, leading to progressive loss of kidney function.

The Miracle of Saviour Siblings
- Giving Life a Fighting Chance
Consider a saviour sibling if your child needs a bone marrow
transplant and finding a compatible donor is a challenge.
What is a saviour sibling?
A saviour sibling is a baby created through IVF to help save the life of an older sibling who has a serious illness, whose cure is a bone marrow transplant. The baby is genetically screened to ensure they are disease free and HLA matched with the older sibling and can donate bone marrow or tissues to help treat the illness.
Saviour siblings can help treat a wide range of genetic and non-genetic conditions. These include sickle cell anaemia, thalassemia, leukaemia, and other blood-related disorders, as well as certain types of cancer and bone marrow diseases.

Did You Know?
β-thalassemia is a genetic disorder in India affecting 10,000 children each year, with 30-40 million carriers. Monthly blood transfusions are needed for affected children. A cure is possible through hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), but the chance of finding a match in India is only 0.008%.
