Abstract
Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) is an adjunct technology to in vitro fertilization (IVF) that involves carrying out biopsies and testing embryos of subfertile couples to improve the chances of a successful pregnancy. Until now, PGS has been limited to aneuploidy screening by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH).
