Established in 2009, the Genetics Department at Lifeline Hospital is a pioneer in providing state-of-the-art genetic services. We pride ourselves on utilizing groundbreaking Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology to offer cost-effective and highly precise Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS). These services empower parents to make informed decisions about their embryos, reducing errors and significantly increasing success rates. In addition to PGD and PGS, we provide Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) for the early detection of DNA defects in the child, enhancing prenatal care.
