Preimplantation genetic aneuploidy screening performed by polar body biopsy has become a frequently used method, especially as in several countries only preconceptional genetic diagnosis is allowed. To penetrate the zona pellucida, mechanical, chemical and laser-assisted techniques have been introduced. In this paper, the advantages, disadvantages, efficacy and safety of these techniques are elucidated.
