PGS – Pre Implantation Genetic Screening

What is Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening?

Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) allows the laboratory technicians to screen the embryo for any genetic abnormalities, which can account for 50 - 70% of all miscarriages. Without PGS, IVF centers can only judge the embryo based on looks. PGS helps the success rate of single embryo transfer higher and helps keep the pregnancy safer for both mother and child.
