Family Balancing

PGS to help your patients select the desired sex of their embryos

Scroll Down


  • Family balancing test is used alongside in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to screen abnormalities in embryos.
  • The information obtained also helps us to select the sex of the embryo prior to transfer.
  • It is indicated for couples who want to have a baby of a particular sex.

According to internal data and several independent clinical studies, selecting normal embryos might increase the pregnancy possibilities after transfer.


In the general population, 25% of all clinical pregnancies end in miscarriage and almost half are chromosomally abnormal.

Therefore, especially in high-risk groups, the PGS reduces the risk of misscarriage.


The PGS increases the possibility of having a healthy baby, as it allows chromosomally normal embryos to be identified.

The mean theoretical time to achieve a LB (weeks) decreases from 14.9 to 7.7 weeks with PGS (1)


PGS helps to avoid repeating cycles of assisted reproduction and can help to reduce the number of multiple pregnancies performing by supporting single embryo transfer



We use the most advanced technology, NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) to perform the Family Balancing test:

  • Rapid technology allowing embryos to be transferred in fresh or frozen cycles
  • Our technology and experience allows to analyze 24 chromosomes, in a 12-hour procedure which provides results in more than 99% of cases.


Our experts are professional, reliable and approachable and are available to help guide both professionals and patients throughout the entire process. We are proud to deliver high quality results for every test, every day.
