Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS), refers to removing one or more cells from an in vitro fertilization embryo to test for chromosomal abnormality.
We are using NGS(Next-generation sequencing) technology to perform PGS for aneuploidy screening.
Next-generation sequencing refers to non-Sanger-based high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies. Millions or billions of DNA strands can be sequenced in parallel, yielding substantially more throughput and minimizing the need for the fragment-cloning methods that are often used in Sanger sequencing of genomes. With the help of this technique we can get result within 12 to 14 hours and we can do fresh embryo transfer.
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique that involves checking the genes of embryos created through ICSI for any kind of serious genetic defects. This method allows people with a specific inherited condition in their family to avoid passing it on to their children. In most cases, the female, male, or both partners have been genetically screened and identified to be carriers of potential genetic conditions.
