Advanced embryo selection is a technology applied in preimplantation genetic diagnosis. The normal human chromosome structure consists of 23 pairs of structures. The most important reason for not getting pregnant in IVF treatments is considered to be the disorder in the chromosome numbers in the embryos. Even if the shape of the embryos is normal, the chromosome numbers are problematic and do not result in pregnancy when they are transferred. In the past, 5 and 13 chromosomes were examined with the PGD method, while all of them were scanned with the NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) method. In embryos that have passed this test, the chance of pregnancy is 60% or more. The most important feature of this method is the selection of embryos from Day 5 (blastocyst).

NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) is suitable for recurrent IVF failures, women over 40 and patients with genetically inherited disorders.
