Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH)
When couples undergo IVF, they want to move forward with healthy embryos. That reduces the risk of birth defects and makes it more likely that the couple will carry the baby to term. Our team offers in-house Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) testing. Our fertility specialists use this innovative technique to test all the chromosomes contained in an embryo. Our technicians take a single cell biopsy and use it to check for chromosomal abnormalities, such as extra chromosomes or missing or incomplete chromosomes. After testing all the embryos, we pick the healthiest ones to implant.
