aCGH allows PRC physicians to transfer fewer, healthier, fresh embryos, enhancing the chance of success for each family.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 25, 2016
Dr. Rifaat Salem, top Los Angeles fertility doctor, is now offering in-house pre-implantation genetic diagnosis testing. The testing helps identify chromosomal abnormalities during the IVF process and increases the chance for a healthy baby. Call (866) 423-2645 for more information and scheduling with the top PGD testing in Los Angeles.
Dr. Salem has implemented Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) testing of embryos as a component of the integrated pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) lab. aCGH testing permits testing of all chromosomes of an embryo, obtained from a single cell biopsy. Down syndrome, for example, is a result of an extra chromosome 21 and Turner’s syndrome is a result of a missing or incomplete X-chromosome.
The goal at Pacific Reproductive Center is to offer the highest success rates possible for patients with the healthiest babies resulting. The aCGH testing precludes the need for embryos to be sent out from the center. PRC’s vested interest in the science of helping create families translates into patients receiving 24 hour results. aCGH allows PRC physicians to transfer fewer, healthier, fresh embryos, enhancing the chance of success for each family.
The advantages of aCGH include improved IVF implantation and pregnancy success rates, transfer of fewer embryos, reduced multiple births, reduced risk of birth defects and reduced incidence of miscarriage. The benefits of utilizing PRC’s In-House aCGH Lab include a 24 hour result turnaround, no need for shipment of biopsied cells, repeatable testing if needed, increased accuracy and reduced overall costs of fertility treatments.
With over twenty year's experience, Dr. Rifaat Salem offers cutting-edge assisted reproductive technologies for patients that are offered at four locations including fertility clinics in Irvine, Corona, Glendale and Torrance. Call (866) 423-2645 for more information and scheduling.
