Performing tests to identify genetic defects within embryos

At Conrady A.R.T. Clinic, we understand that every parent hopes for a healthy child. However, achieving this goal is often complicated when there’s an increased risk of a chromosome abnormality or inherited disease. Our preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) procedure allows the couples at risk to have a child with the best possible genetic outlook.

After fertilization, we’ll collect a small sample of cells from each embryo. These cells will be tested for congenital diseases or chromosomal disorders. We only select embryos that are predicted to be genetically unaffected to improve the success rate of our treatment.

Embryo Chromosomal Screening is performed to:

  • Identify genetic defects within embryos created through IVF
  • Reduce the chance of conceiving a child with congenital disease
  • Reduce the risk of miscarriage
  • Increase the chance of pregnancy for couples with advanced maternal age or repeated IVF failures
