Cordlife PGS (Preimplantation Genetic Screening) is the procedure of evaluating embryos for chromosomal aneuploidy, the presence of either addition or loss of chromosomes in embryos generated from chromosomally normal parents. In conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, Cordlife PGS helps to improve the likelihood of a successful pregnancy while reducing the chance of miscarriage or having a child with gross chromosomal disorders.
“Research has shown that transfer an embryo after PGS has higher rate of a successful pregnancy, from 22% to 41%.1
Who should consider Cordlife PGS?

“PGS test is highly beneficial to women above 37 years old. This test helps to improve pregnancy and live birth rate.2

5 Simple Steps To Enrol Cordlife PGS

Step 1: Consultation

Consult your doctor or fertility specialist


Step 2: Collection

Doctor or fertility specialist will collect samples (Trophectoderm cells / Blastocyst).


Step 3: Sequence

Your samples will be delivered to the sequencing laboratory in Taiwan for analysis.


Step 4: Report

Reports will be available in 3 weeks.


Step 5: Transfer

Based on the PGS test results, your doctor or fertility specialist will select and transfer healthy embryos to the uterus.

Enroling Cordlife PGS

Cordlife PGS must be prescribed by your obstetrician who will explain the details about PGS to ensure the test is suitable for you. Please enquire with your obstetrician today or send us an email.

Disclaimer
No test is perfect. A PGS test result is specific to the tested sample. The test result only provides supporting evidence for the healthcare provider, and does not draw final diagnostic conclusions. PGS test result is NOT a diagnostic test. If any chromosomal abnormality (aneuploidy/deletion/duplication) is found, the healthcare provider shall be responsible in providing guidance and recommendations based on the currently known abnormalities. While results of this testing is usually highly conclusive, not all chromosomal abnormalities can be detected depending on the chromosomal or embryonic status or other causes.

Cordlife PGS is brought to you by PT. Cordlife Persada in partnership with Taiwan-based laboratory – Genetics Generation Advancement Corp. (GGA).
