New Hope Fertility Center in New York is committed to providing the latest and best fertility technology. NGS – Next Generation Sequencing – is a new method of PGT-A. NGS is our latest genetic screening test for primary candidates undergoing IVF. NGS is used for comprehensive chromosome testing of embryos created through IVF. NGS is on the horizon to replacing PGT-A because of the procedure’s lower cost and reduced errors.
NGS allows embryologists to screen for defects on the chromosomal level with higher accuracy and more detail than ever before. NGS results are comprehensive and a higher resolution than any other genetic testing method because it detects more translocations.
NGS may be run as a standalone test – or in conjunction with PGT-M – at a faster completion rate. NGS also detects mosaicism – when the embryo’s cells exhibit different chromosomal content.
