Pre implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is the genetic testing of a single cell from an embryo prior to transfer of the embryo to the uterus. The analysis of an embryo can be performed when the cell of an embryo is removed by a process called Embryo Biopsy. This procedure is performed by the embryologist with the help of an assistant to help prepare the cell for testing. The cell is then fixed on a slide for analysis later in the case of FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization) or placed in a small container in the case of CGH (comparative genomic hybridization). The cell is then sent for genetic testing. Depending on the type of test, it can take 1 to 10 days to get the test results. Most tests are completed within 1-2 days and the embryos can still be placed into the uterus at a normal time for IVF treatments. If longer time is needed, the embryos can be frozen until the test result is obtained. Pre implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), or PGS is associated with a high rate of success on the first try!
