blastocyst biopsy

blastocyst biopsy

A biopsy performed after the blastocyst differentiates into 2 morphologically distinct cell lines: the trophoblast and the inner cell mass of about 60 cells. Blastocyst-stage biopsy for pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is performed on day three of in vitro culture, which allows the developing TE to protrude after blastulation.

Blastocyst biopsy has also been suggested in this regard, but since the blastocyst has a higher degree of chromosomal mosaicism and since trophectodermic cells could be mistakenly taken out (they can differ chromosomally from the inner mass cells), Day-3 biopsies prove more accurate (9).
