Monash IVF Group is committed to the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology
Monash IVF offers the latest advance in preimplantation genetic testing (available through Monash IVF KPJ Johor Fertility Centre at KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital).
What is Genetic Testing for IVF? Genetic screening of embryos in IVF is known as pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT). Embryos are tested before being implanted to detect issues with chromosomes or genes.
Embryos may look ‘normal’ under the lab microscope, but even those that grow to blastocyst stage (day 5-6) might not have the right number of chromosomes*.
Genetic testing like PGT-A (formally known as PGS) of embryos during IVF can help:
Aneuploidy testing lets us handpick embryos with the correct number of chromosomes. Our scientists carefully remove some blastomeres (embryonic cells) on day five of your embryo’s development. These cells will be tested. Only embryos with the potential to result in a healthy baby are transferred, so the number of treatment cycles needed for a successful ongoing pregnancy can be significantly reduced.
