Q: What is PGD?
A: Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a medical procedure which allows embryos to be tested for gender-related genetic conditions, prior to being placed in the womb, giving the best opportunity to select the gender of your baby. PGD involves tried and tested assisted conception techniques which are safe, reliable and ethically sound. In-vitro fertilization is now widely accepted and this forms the basis of our gender selection program.

Q: Why does the BioTranz come with 2 test tubes?
A: When using the BioTranz kit, the produced specimen is placed in 1 of the test tubes and is mixed with the Test Yolk Buffer (TYB). The second test tube is provided as a back up in case there is a mistake with the first test tube. In rare cases, the specimen produced is too large for 1 test tube. When this happens, half of the specimen is placed in each test tube with half the amount of TYB.
 
Q: Does shipping semen or sperm via other non-certified or properly tested semen shippers other than the BioTranz harm the sperm?
A: Definitely! Do not be fooled by imitations and ship your semen via non-certified or properly tested semen/sperm shippers such as those used to ship animal semen or other biological transporters. Do not take a chance with the health of your future child. Do it right! (See full article)
