July 23rd, 2014 | Free PGD for Genetic Disease Diagnosis after Carrier Screening
Carrier Screening is when a couple is tested to see if one or both is a carrier for a genetic disease. Testing involves taking a blood sample and sending it to a genetic testing laboratory called Good Start Genetics. If the report from Good Start Genetics indicates that both partners are carriers for the same genetic disease, patients may be eligible to receive free pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) of their embryos after IVF for the single gene disease. For more information about carrier screening visit https://www.goodstartgenetics.com/carrier-screening/ For more information about free PGD, contact Tiffany at PGD@mainlinefertility.com

June 10th, 2014 | Bloomberg News: Moms Pick Best Embryos from Petri Dish with New Tool
Women in the U.S. having trouble conceiving the natural way now may use a new tool to help choose the IVF embryo most likely to result in a pregnancy. The FDA cleared for sale Auxogen Inc’s time-lapse photography device that assists fertility doctors, who typically eye-ball embryos, to pick the most viable ones for placing in the womb. The Eeva system assesses the timing of important changes in embryos’ development to differentiate among ones that look equally healthy. “It’s helpful beyond words, ” Michael Glassner, Medical Director at Main Line Fertility and Reproductive Medicine, said in an interview. “It’s going to give more clarity to the patient. It’s going to give a higher pregnancy rate. The miscarriage rate goes down. It’s just going to change the field.”
