EmbryVu. Scientifically advanced.
Personally accessible.

When you are going through treatment for infertility, you want to plan for success. That’s why so many families are making preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) a standard part of their IVF treatment plan. EmbryVu is advanced PGS that can help you find the path to pregnancy.

Why aneuploidy matters

When an embryo has more than, or fewer than, the normal number of chromosomes, that’s a condition known as aneuploidy. Embryos that are aneuploid will fail to implant in the uterus or will result in a miscarriage. Aneuploidy occurs across all age groups, but after a woman reaches age 35, the proportion of aneuploid embryos increases rapidly.

An important part of IVF

PGS with EmbryVu is a way of identifying embryos with the correct number of chromosomes to improve your chances of a successful pregnancy. IVF pregnancy rates are significantly higher when PGS is used.

Who is PGS for?

PGS with EmbryVu can make a real difference for many people.

  • Are you a woman over the age of 35?
  • Have you had 1 or more miscarriages?*
  • Have you been through unsuccessful IVF cycles before?*
  • Have you had a previous pregnancy with chromosome abnormality?*
  • Are you challenged by male factor infertility?*
  • Is it important to you to be able to learn the sex of your child?
  • Do you want to reduce the chance of having twins or other multiple births?
  • *Ask your doctor if EmbryVu is right for you based on your medical history.

    1

    Your fertility team removes (biopsies) a few cells from each of your embryos and sends the cells to the Good Start Genetics laboratory — just a few embryonic cells are enough.

    2

    Our procedure analyzes all 23 chromosome pairs to identify normal* implantation-ready embryos.
    Your results are available within 7 to 10 days.

    3

    Based on your results, your fertility team selects healthy* embryos for transfer, increasing your chances of pregnancy success.

    *Normal and healthy imply the expected number of whole chromosomes indicated by EmbryVu.
