Genetic Screening

Genetic Screening

Want peace of mind?

Genetic screening gives you the power to increase your chances of success. The first step in infertility treatment, genetic screening helps you flag future issues and implant the healthiest embryo, potentially reducing time in care and future costs.

When using validated forms of preimplantation screening (PGS), also known as comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) or preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), patients and providers have powerful information to support a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

The benefits of CCS include:

  • Allowing the embryologist to accurately select the highest quality embryo(s) for transfer
  •  Selecting high-quality embryos to improve implantation rates and reduces miscarriage rates
  • Greatly increase the effectiveness of single embryo transfer (SET)
  • Reducing the risks associated with becoming pregnant with multiples, including premature birth and low birth weight babies, increased risk of C-section and time spent in neonatal intensive care units, and health risks to the mother.

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California uses the most rigorously validated and widely-used CCS platform in the industry, provided by the Foundation for Embryonic Competence. We are proud to be using the most advanced iteration of the platform, NexCCS.
