PGS – Pre Implantation Genetic Screening
Why Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening? (PGS)
Without PGS, many IVF centers can only judge the quality of an embryo by the way the embryo looks. This accounts for any genetic factors the embryo may have which may affect the outcomes of your cycle. Our genetic arrays can act as an early warning system before your embryo transfer so we can only use the highest quality embryos for your cycle.
Safer and More Successful Pregnancy
Current data sets show that genetic abnormalities(aneuploidy) can account for 50-70% of miscarriages due to having too many or too few chromosomes. Screening with PGS would identify these embryos, and prevent them from entering the embryo selection process.
Making Elective Single Embryo Transfer More Successful
Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening makes the success of a Single Embryo Transfer higher, and has a higher level of safety with pregnancy. After screening any embryos, our embryologists can identify the best embryos for transfer.
Great for Embryo Batching Cycles
If you chose to batch embryos, we can test all of the embryos at the same time after all of your retrievals. Reducing the cost of PGS as a single test instead of paying for multiple instances of PGS.
