    Cells are biopsied from an embryo created via IVF and are tested against a range of chromosomal and genetic diseases. With the assisted use of Karyomapping – a technique for analysing specific genetic disorders – a professional can determine whether an embryo has the correct number of chromosomes. If the embryo is healthy and gene disorder free, it is then implanted in the uterus or frozen for later use (American Pregnancy Association, 2016). For those that cannot…
