Comprehensive Chromosome Screening

Helping achieve higher implantation rates and fewer pregnancy losses

HQA COMPREHENSIVE CHROMOSOME SCREENING (CCS)

IVF Genetic ScreeningThe purpose of  Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS)  is to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that have the appropriate number of chromosomes. Screening embryos in advance can help achieve higher implantation rates and fewer pregnancy losses, particularly for women 35 or older, couples with multiple-failed IVF cycles or implantation failure, and couples with repeated miscarriages. With CCS, the future of genetic and embryo screening has arrived.

 

What is Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS)?

Aneuploidy is the term used to describe any embryo with either too many or too few chromosomes. Most people are not aware that aneuploidy is the cause of greater than 60% of miscarriages, as well as the most likely reason that patients do not get pregnant from an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.

The purpose of CCS is to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that do not have abnormalities in their number of chromosomes. Screening embryos in advance can help achieve higher implantation rates and fewer pregnancy losses, particularly for women 35 or older, couples with multiple-failed IVF cycles or implantation failure, and couples with repeated miscarriages.
