Disclaimer: It is possible that not all embryos/biopsies will generate definite results (i.e. determined sex). According to Almodin et. al. (A bovine protocol for training professionals in preimplantation genetic diagnosis using polymerase chain reaction, Fertility and Sterility, 84 (4), 895-899), up to 18% of the whole embryo PCR and 38% of the biopsy PCR did not amplify. Although RLI scientists maintain an amplification rate over 95% of all embryos and biopsies assayed, we cannot guarantee the PCR amplification for all samples.
