Preimplantation genetic screening, PGS is accomplished by biopsy a blastocyst, sending a few cells to the genetic lab and transferring euploid embryo, i.e. an embryo with 46 chromosomes. The patient will know the gender of the embryo and can elect to transfer the embryo of the preferred gender. PGS allows more efficient treatment and having an elective single embryo transfer.
