When going through an IVF treatment, due to your age or other factors, it is very important to choose a healthy embryo to carry out your treatment successfully, and knowing which are your optimal embryos is a great step that will help you live your assisted reproduction treatmentwith more tranquility and security.
It is essential to minimize risks, and that is why today we would like to talk about EMBRACE, a new test that will help you and your doctor prioritize which are the optimal embryos to transfer during a treatment.
EMBRACE classifies your embryos by ordering them according to their probability of being healthy, and their viability. The embryos with the best possibilities obtain the highest score, and it allows us to know if your embryos obtained in an IVF treatment have the correct number of chromosomes, which increases the chances of achieving the pregnancy of a healthy baby.
Although other additional factors intervene when having a healthy and safe pregnancy, knowing which are your optimal embryos is a great step that will help you in your reproductive journey for a successful pregnancy.
Recent studies have shown that embryos obtained in assisted reproduction treatment release DNA during their development. The embryo, while developing in the laboratory, releases DNA that is deposited in the drop of a liquid called culture medium. Your IVF clinic collects that drop and sends it to us for analysis. It is a non-invasive technique since the embryo is not manipulated with a biopsy, it always remains safely in your clinic.
At Igenomix we analyze that DNA from the culture medium and with the result we indicate which embryos are most likely to be chromosomally normal and therefore most optimal for transfer.
One of the main benefits from EMBRACE is that it is a non-invasive option that favors a safer and more effective IVF treatment by avoiding embryo biopsies, which can reduce the cost by favoring its use by allowing access to a greater number of people undergoing IVF treatment.
From our laboratories we work so that your genetic specialist and your doctor can recommend the best option to achieve a pregnancy that results in the birth of a healthy baby.
