Agilent Technologies Agilent OnePGT

Agilent Technologies has launched Agilent OnePGT, a genome-wide, next-generation sequencing solution for preimplantation genetic testing. OnePGT allows parallel detection of multiple monogenic disorders, translocations, and aneuploidies from a single biopsy, going from biopsy to a single comprehensive report in a matter of days, Agilent said. The test is run on the company's Alissa platform, allowing for automatic calling of genetic abnormalities with built-in quality control metrics and an audit trail. This solution provides fertility specialists more comprehensive PGT data in order to help them identify the most viable embryos for transfer.
