Whether you’re having fertility issues such as trouble conceiving, or are worried about passing on an inherited condition, or are already pregnant and are looking for a noninvasive prenatal test during pregnancy, we’re here to help.
We know that unanswered questions about your family’s future can be frustrating. We specialize in reproductive technologies to help you find answers to fertility issues. From embryo screening during in vitro fertilization (IVF) to noninvasive prenatal screening, we have the solution.
That’s where our technology can help. Your embryos are screened to make sure that they have the correct number of chromosomes early on in the IVF process – a crucial factor in the success of a pregnancy. This process is called PGS or preimplantation genetic screening.
Using PGS also may mean that you only have to transfer a single embryo, reducing the likelihood of multiple births and the associated increased risk of complications to the mother and child.1 PGS has been shown to increase implantation success rates, but it’s important to talk to your doctor to see if PGS is right for you.

Our technology can decrease the chance of an inherited condition being passed on. Your embryos can be screened during the IVF cycle through a process called PGD or preimplantation genetic diagnosis. PGD can tell you whether your embryo has the inherited condition you were concerned about and then can help you select the embryo(s) least likely to have inherited the familial condition.
PGD can help identify which embryos are least likely to have inherited the familial condition. Talk to your doctor about PGD and whether it’s right for you.

One of the first questions is “Will my baby be healthy?” There is now an option for a simple noninvasive prenatal test or NIPT. NIPT will help get you some of the important answers you want about your baby's genetic health, noninvasively. NIPT consists of a simple blood test during pregnancy, done as early as 10 weeks gestation.
It can screen for certain chromosomal conditions such as Down Syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (trisomy 18), and Patau Syndrome (trisomy 13). This test during pregnancy can also screen for certain sex chromosome conditions. Talk to your doctor about whether NIPT is right for you.
