Quality embryo identification is key to conceiving a successful pregnancy through IVF. Why does this matter? Only quality embryos are transferred during a fresh cycle or cryopreserved for future Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures. We give careful attention to nurturing and identifying quality embryos as they grow and develop in vitro. Bottom Line: Our embryologists utilize state-of-the-art technology to identify quality embryos.
From a cell – to a newborn baby – embryology is the branch of biology and medicine focused on the study of an embryo from the point of fertilization through development to the fetus stage. The expertise practice of embryology is key to pregnancy success through IVF technology.
Excess, quality embryos produced during a fresh IVF cycle are cryopreserved for future transfers via FET. Only the highest quality embryos are cryopreserved for the best chances of a future FET pregnancy success.
EmbryoScope technology is used to gather time-lapsed data by closely monitoring every embryo’s growth and development without disruption of the in vitro culturing process.
EmbryoScope is an innovative, cutting edge, time-lapsed photography and software solution. EmbryoScope is technology designed to improve IVF outcomes.
Genetic testing in conjunction with IVF reduces the number of fresh cycles or FETs required to achieve a health pregnancy. Bottom Line: Genetic testing can increase the chances of pregnancy up to 30 percent.
PGD is recommended for patients who are known carriers of a single gene disorder.
PGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred. PGS identifies extra or missing chromosomes – aneuploidy – in an embryo.
NGS is a new and innovative method of PGS. NGS is the latest genetic screening test for couples undergoing IVF. NGS lowers patient cost and reduces errors in detection of genetic defects in an embryo. NGS may be run as a standalone test or in conjunction with PGS at a faster rate.
Our cutting edge laboratory technology provides an optimum environment for healthy embryo growth, development, and testing prior to transfer.
