What is PGT - A '5 - Chromosome Screening'?

PGT-A or Pre-implantation genetic testing for Aneuploidies is a breakthrough genetic technology used for screening the embryos obtained through IVF. The test determines the genetic health of the embryos as well as the gender of the embryos. It helps to select the best embryo for transfer and improve the chance of achieving a successful pregnancy.

 5-chromosome screening :The 5-chromosome PGT-A screens chromosome no 13, 18 and 21, and the sex chromosomes, X and Y, reducing the chances of transferring an embryo with a chromosomal abnormality caused by aneuploidy and allows for the gender of each embryo to be identified.

5-chromosome embryo screening is most often recommended for couples with:

 Concern for, or previous pregnancy with a chromosomal abnormality:In cases of a previous pregnancy involving Down syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards syndrome (Trisomy 18) or Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) or if the couple is concerned about a pregnancy with any chromosomal abnormality.
