We have tested and subsequently successfully applied a single-needle approach to obtain blastomere biopsies from human preimplantation embryos for preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). The method was first evaluated in a mouse system and shown to be compatible with a high degree of in vitro and in vivo development of biopsied mouse embryos. Furthermore, we showed that biopsied mouse embryos after transfer to recipient mice underwent implantation, normal development and delivery. Litters were… CONTINUE READING
