    Default New DNA testing offered by Monash IVF

    Hey everyone,

    This was on the news this morning and I thought it was worth sharing. It looks like a much cheaper and safer technique to grade embryos compared to PGD/PGS. Only currently available with Monash IVF but hopefully it will be with other clinics in the future. Apparently it’s improving success rates and reducing miscarriages.

    Edited to remove the word ‘reliable’ and it’s the same as PGS/PGD

    Thanks for sharing. Interesting article. Especially as I did PGS at Monash.
    It doesn’t say anything about improved reliability, though. From what I read it means more embryos will be suitable for testing (i.e. all), but nothing about the reliability of the test result itself. Or is there another article you have found? Would be really interested to know!

    It apparently has the same reliability as the invasive pgt test

    Hello.

    No sorry, that’s all I’ve found. I’ll edit the original comment. I only found out about it from hubby who saw it on the news

    I went to a presentation by one of the IVFA professors recently talking about new technology. Apparently this new method is slightly lower reliability than PGS (he did quote % but I can’t remember them). But reduced risk to embryo and can test more embryos.... so definitely interesting!

    I suspect IVFA wouldn’t be out talking about if if they don’t offer (or plan to offer it soon).
