At Embryolab, harmonious coexistence and cooperation between different disciplines and sciences is a founding principle. This innovative concept led to the establishment of a Cytogenetics Laboratory and a Genetic Counselling Department for couples, considering that it will help in their effort to gain the most precious of life’s gifts… a child.
Genetic counselling is a modern science where analytical tools unlock the DNA of people, helping them acquire healthy children reducing hereditary or contagious diseases. In other words, genetic counselling perfectly complements the fertility puzzle while being harmoniously combined with embryology and gynaecology.
It is of particular scientific interest that the contribution of Genetic Counselling, with research and clinical documentation, is now considered indispensable in assisted reproductive technology. It can extremely accurately identify the probability of a couple having a healthy child using pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. It is noteworthy that genetic counselling service is provided only within a few IVF units in Greece and Europe.
