Preimplantation Genetic Screening is used to genetically and chromosomally profile the embryo prior to implantation. This technique is used to assess if the embryo has any defects or carries any congenital diseases. This way only the best embryos will be implanted thereby reducing the probability of an unhealthy foetus.
Earlier only 5 chromosomes of the total 23 chromosomes could be analyzed. But, with PGS all 23 chromosomes can be analyzed which gives more clarity into the profile of the embryo. So, using this technique only the best and unaffected embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus. This is a great alternative to the currently practiced post conception diagnostic procedures which could lead to a selective pregnancy termination if there is something wrong with the fetus.
PGS is presently the only option available to avoid the high risk of a child affected with a genetic disease before conception. It is an appealing way of preventing a heritable genetic disease.
