What is the process of chromosome testing by next generation sequencing?

  1. Chromosome testing by next generation sequencing involves taking a few cells from a developing embryo for testing.
  2. Next generation sequencing amplifies DNA from the cell’s nucleus by multiplying it many thousand of times before using sequencing technology to count the number of copies of each chromosome present in the cells from the embryo.
  3. This allows the scientists to accurately detect chromosomal errors, so only an embryo with a normal chromosome profile is selected for transfer, increasing the chance of a successful pregnancy.While the majority of biopsies are undertaken on Day 5 embryos, we have the flexibility to undertake the biopsy on any day during embryo development depending on the patient’s individual circumstances.
