Preimplantation Genetic Screening / Diagnosis (PGS/PGD) and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

With the best IVF lab in New York, New York Reproductive Wellness will utilize the newest IVF technology to give you an edge over your infertility.  To maximize your chance of conception, various technologies now exist that can genetically diagnose any abnormalities in your embryos.   Using Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, or PGD, our skilled NYRW Embryology team can diagnose known genetic abnormalities.  Using Preimplantation Genetic Screening, our specialist will screen your embryos for unknown chromosomal abnormalities.

Using Genetic Screening is a huge advantage to families undergoing fertility treatment.  It allows our team to determine the embryo with the highest chance of giving you a healthy, live birth baby.  In doing so, we can selectively transfer back the embryo you want, allowing for gender selection and family balancing.  Primarily, however, PGS/PGD allow couples with single-gene disorders (include cystic fibrosis, Neurofibromatosis, sickle cell disease and Tay-Sachs disease) and X-linked genetic diseases (e.g. Duchenne muscular dystrophy) to avoid transmitting the disorder to their child by selecting only genetically normal embryos to transfer in an IVF cycle.

Who should consider genetic testing?

At New York Reproductive Wellness, everyone struggling with fertility and undergoing IVF is recommend to use genetic testing.  This type of test will dramatically increase your chance of becoming pregnant and having a baby during each attempt, ultimately helping you become pregnant, sooner.  More specifically, PGS/PGD is a good option for:


-Couples with a history of miscarriage

-Multiple failed IVF cycles

-Desire to perform family balancing or gender selection

-Older patients and patients with egg quality issues

-Couples who are known carriers of genetic diseases


The BEST IVF Technology

As part of our dedication to helping you realize your dreams of family, New York Reproductive wellness also recommends Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), the newest form of PGS.  In a similar fashion to Preimplantation Genetic Screening, NGS allows our embryologist to create generalized probes for identifying an unprecedented number of chromosomal abnormalities.  NGS is proven to have the highest accuracy of any genetic test today, faster than PGS, and with more detail in the reports.  This will allow the NYRW team to quickly and efficiently identify any issues, before they grow to be a problem.
