One step closer to a healthy pregnancy

The majority of miscarriages, especially those that happen in the first trimester, are due to chromosomal abnormalities. This test works by identifying embryos with extra or missing chromosomes or pieces of chromosomes.

By testing embryos before IVF transfer, you may have:

  • a higher chance of a successful, healthy IVF pregnancy
  • a reduced risk of miscarriage
  • the ability to identify the sex of your baby (only if you’d like to know)

Embryo health and maternal age

As we age, there’s a higher chance that our embryos are affected by chromosomal changes.

Testing can help you identify healthy* embryos.

Adapted from internal data on over 90,000 embryos, 2018.

at age 30 there are 32% affectedat age 35 there are 41% affectedat age 40 there are 65% affectedat age 42+ there are 80% affected

*Healthy implies the expected number of chromosomes indicated by Invitae preimplantation genetic testing.
