Steps Involved in PGS Testing

Steps Involved In PGS Testing

If you are considering Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS), then you may be curious as to what the PGS process involves.  Most of the steps take place within your chosen IVF clinic and your embryos never leave your personal IVF clinic.

The steps involved with PGS are as follows:

  1. Normal In Vitro Fertilization treatments will occur at your IVF clinic where eggs will be collected and fertilized.
  2. Embryos will be given the chance to grow three days or five days.
  3. Cells will be removed via a biopsy procedure by an embryologist at your IVF clinic.
  4. The biopsy is sent to Genesis Genetics via a specialized courier service.
  5. Chromosomes are analyzed by our expert scientists to evaluate duplications and/or deletions.
  6. The chromosomal findings are reported to your IVF physician.

Using the report provided by our team, your physician will be able to determine which embryos to implant into the womb in order to increase your chances for a successful pregnancy.
