What Is Embryo Genetic Screening (PGT-A)? 

It is a highly specialised test that can greatly improve live birth rate per embryo transferred

How Does It Increase IVF Success?

With this test, we can identify embryos with the correct number of chromosomes and the best chance of developing into a healthy pregnancy.

What Happens When An Embryo Doesn’t Have The Correct Number Of Chromosomes?

Embryos with an incorrect number of chromosomes will most likely not implant, or if they do implant, will most likely miscarry.
