Comprehensive Chromosome Screening

Services and Treatments

New methods of pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) provide an opportunity to identify chromosomally normal embryos for transfer in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. Among the many improvements to historical methods of PGS, new technology provides information for the normalcy of all 24 chromosomes, and has been termed comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS).

Unlike previous methods, CCS prevents the selection and transfer of abnormal embryos for unscreened chromosomes and has powerful evidence of improving IVF outcomes.

The ability to screen all 24 chromosomes from a single biopsy has been made possible through the development of a variety of DNA amplification methods. CCS is used to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that have the appropriate number of chromosomes.

The purpose of screening embryos in advance is to help accomplish higher implantation rates and fewer pregnancy losses. This service is performed particularly for women 35 or older, couples with multiple-failed IVF cycles or implantation failure, and couples with repeated miscarriages. A large number of early miscarriages are related to chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus.

CCS is performed on a few cells biopsied from a patient’s blastocyst. The genetic material of the embryo is not altered in any way during CCS. During CCS, we obtain a few cells on a day 5 or 6 embryo called a blastocyst. Biopsying the embryo at a more advanced cell stage dramatically increases the accuracy of this testing and safety of the embryo because it has several hundred cells by then.

Another advantage to CCS is that we can greatly reduce the odds of a couple having multiple pregnancies (twins or triplets).

It arms clinicians with the knowledge that they are transferring the most chromosomally fit embryo(s), therefore precluding the need to transfer multiple, unscreened embryos in the hope that one will be healthy enough to create an ongoing pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Adopt Embryos

Why Choose Embryo Adoption

A more private way to adopt

The process of receiving donated embryos is less obvious to the public which allows for more privacy than traditional adoption.

  • Greater degree of privacy
  • Anonymous
  • More control of timing

More convenient than IVF

Some intended parents may choose embryo adoption for its speed and convenience

  • Fewer procedures than IVF
  • No surgical retrieval
  • Fewer medications

More cost-effective

Embryo adoption is a fraction of the cost of traditional adoption and less than the average cost of IVF

  • Lower cost than traditional adoption
  • Lower cost than most IVF options
  • Lower cost medications

Less waiting

The waiting period for embryo adoption can be shorter than that traditional adoption and often quicker than IVF

  • Shorter waiting times
  • Quicker than IVF
  • Fewer clinic visits

Genetic diversity

In some cases, intended parents may wish to have a child who doesn't share their genetic material for medical reasons or personal ones.

  • Avoid passing on a hereditary disease
  • Choice of genetic makeup
  • Increased potential for a healthy baby

High success rates

Compared to IVF with you own eggs and sperm, using donated embryos often has a similar or higher success rate

  • Typically better outcomes
