“Focus on Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization
Santiago Munné, PhD, head of Reprogenetics, Livingston, NJ, had helped to develop the first PGD test in the early 1990s. In 2001 he created Reprogenetics, the first laboratory in the United States to be accredited to perform PGD. The work performed by Dr Munné and his team these days focuses on array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH). This technique highlights the presence of defects such as microdeletions and duplications in the DNA and uses a standard control rather than parental DNA in the analysis..”
