New advancements in the fields of embryology and genetics testing have significantly improved In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) pregnancy success rates. The latest technological innovation, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) enhances how embryologists analyze and select quality embryos for transfer. The embryologists at New Hope Fertility Center give steadfast attention nurturing embryos as they develop in vitro.
Quality embryos identified in vitro through NGS have the highest chance of implantation. Using NGS in conjunction with IVF, high quality embryos are transferred to the patient’s uterus for the best chance of a healthy, successful pregnancy.
Through NGS technology, you can identify the gender of your embryos in conjunction with your IVF procedure. Gender identification and selection is a natural byproduct of NGS technology.
NGS identifies the most suitable and healthiest embryo to transfer by detecting chromosomal deficiencies – aneuploidy – an extra or missing chromosome. NGS is set to replace Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). NGS allows embryologists to view the genetic makeup of an embryo at levels far exceeding PGS technology.
