Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Posted : 23 June 2023

NGS or Next Generation Sequencing is an innovation to screen for chromosomal abnormalities in all 23 pairs of growing embryos before transferring the embryos into the female uterus. NGS is innovative with resolution and accuracy up to 98%. It is currently the most popular. Scientists select embryos with normal and strongest chromosomes so that the rate of implantation and pregnancy is successful, safe, and of high quality. 

Who is NGS suitable for?

Normally, our medical team will use innovative pre-implantation genetic screening (NGS) in cases where couples are infertile or have the following abnormalities:

  • Females over 35 years old.
  • A spouse who has a history of pregnancy, a child or a family member with abnormalities such as disabilities, Down syndrome, etc.
  • Couples with a history of more than two unexplained miscarriages within 12 weeks’ gestation.
  • An aborted embryo has a genetic abnormality.
  • The spouse has had IVF or ICSI more than 2 times without success.


Advantages of NGS genetic screening

  • Increase the chances of getting pregnant higher.
  • Obtain babies with normal, complete and healthy chromosomes.
  • Reduce the risk of having a child with a chromosomal abnormality
  • Reduce the chance of abortion caused by abnormalities in the fetus
  • Search for chromosomes that cause diseases inherited from heredity and family members.
  • Examine and screen chromosomes caused by mutations.
