Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is the latest genetic screening test for fertility patients and is a form of PGT-A (for aneuploidies). It allows embryologists to screen for defects on the chromosomal level with higher accuracy and more detail than ever before.
Results are comprehensive and a higher resolution than any other test and will detect more translocations. It may be run as a stand alone test or in conjunction with PGT-M (monogenic disorders) and is faster to complete. NGS can also detect mosaicism which is when the embryo’s cells exhibit different chromosomal content.
