Screens IVF Embryos for Chromosome Abnormalities

All couples are at risk of producing embryos with the incorrect number of chromosomes. These embryos are called “aneuploid”, and do not lead to successful pregnancies. PGS tests a small cell sample from embryos to determine whether they have the correct number of chromosomes (“euploid”), the wrong number (“aneuploid”), or a mix of normal and abnormal cells (“mosaic”).

Preimplantation genetic screening, or PGS, is a genetic test performed on embryos produced through in vitro fertilization (IVF). This test gives information on the embryo’s chromosome content, identifying potential chromosomal abnormalities and helping your care team select the best embryo for transfer.

Reduces Miscarriage Rates, Increases Live Birth Rates

PGS has been shown to increase the likelihood that the embryo will implant, to reduce the rate of miscarriage, and increase the likelihood of a live birth. PGS also lets you and your doctor be more confident about transferring just one embryo, so that parents don’t face the stress or complications associated with having twins or triplets.
