When people decide to have a child, a genetic test is a must. In order to prevent genetic diseases, the geneticists at the Network of Reproductive Centers "Mother and Child" advise people, who have a history of various multifactorial hereditary diseases that are also called "polygenic", such as different types of cancer, diabetes and coronary heart disease to undergo a genetic test analysis. In essence, such tests are no different from identifying susceptibility to disease in adults,
but simultaneously analyze two parental genomes. The complexity of the analysis lies in the fact that it is impossible to find out in advance exactly which genes of the parents will be passed on to a child. A non-invasive prenatal DNA test (NIPT) has been widely practicing by our medical specialists through the isolation of the embryo's DNA from the mother's blood. Non-invasive diagnostics present no risks to fetus and they can be performed starting from the ninth week of pregnancy. In addition to diagnostics, our genetic laboratory specializes in research, development and production of biotechnological techniques.
