Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Other interventions - Preimplantation Genetic Screening by NGS

Experimental: Group A - Intent to transfer single euploid embryo based on NGS testing (VeriSeqâ„¢ PGS) of biopsied blastocysts

No Intervention: Group B - Intent to transfer single embryo based on morphological assessment according to the Gardner scoring system (no PGS)


Other interventions: Preimplantation Genetic Screening by NGS
The VeriSeq PGS takes advantage of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to provide comprehensive, accurate screening of all 24 chromosomes for selection of euploid embryos.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the effect of preimplantation genetic
screening (PGS) by next generation sequencing (NGS) compared to standard morphological
assessment of embryos on pregnancy rates through a randomized controlled trial (RCT). All
embryos will be vitrified and a single embryo transfer (SET) will be performed with either
screened or unscreened embryos depending on randomization.
