Comprehensive chromosome screening with synchronous blastocyst transfer Time for a paradigm shift

Recently, the nature of assisted reproductive technology (ART) laboratory investigation has been shifting. Traditionally, it has focused on optimizing the culture milieu or assuring fertilization; now, a variety of new technologies are available to assess the reproductive potential of individual embryos. Perhaps most prominent has been the resurgence of embryonic aneuploidy screening. The validation of 24-chromosome testing platforms has led to a variety of studies demonstrating higher implantation and delivery rates.
