Approved Providers of Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic/Single Gene Defects and Chromosomal Structural Rearrangement Services

Following the recent announcement by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on 4 May 2021 on the introduction of pre-implantation genetic testing for monogenic / single gene defects (PGT-M) and pre-implantation genetic testing for chromosomal structural rearrangements (PGT-SR) as regulated clinical services, the list of approved hospitals and medical clinics offering Assisted Reproduction (AR) service that patients can approach for PGT-M/SR services can be found below in Table 1. The list of approved providers is subject to change, and couples who require PGT-M or PGT-SR services are encouraged to confirm directly with their AR providers on their licensing status, should they have any queries.
