New Genetic Testing Technology - NICS
Non-Invasive Chromosomal Screening (NICS) is a cutting-edge genetic testing methodology used to evaluate the chromosomal status of an embryo culturing in vitro during the Blastocyst stage (5 to 6 days). The development of NICS methodology at New Hope Fertility Center marks a huge and truly a momentous achievement. We are the only fertility clinic on the East Coast to offer NICS in conjunction with IVF. NICS increases IVF and Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) pregnancy success rates by up to 30 percent.
Advantages of NICS Methodology
Our cutting-edge NICS technology detects most chromosomal abnormalities in embryos prior to transfer into the patient’s uterus.
- No need to remove embryo cells by needle stick
- Less embryo manipulation
- Culture media is processed on site (no transportation concerns)
- NICS causes little to no stress on the embryo as it develops in vitro
- Improved birth rates of healthy babies
- Provides opportunity for gender identification and selection
- Demonstrably safer and more accurate than conventional – trophectoderm – biopsy (cell extraction)
- Avoids disruptive embryo conventional biopsies which have been recently shown in study published in the August, 2019 journal Fertility and Sterility to increase the risk of pre-eclampsia and placental problems in pregnancy
Candidates for NICS
- Women over the age of 35 (advanced maternal age)
- Any woman desiring prenatal genetic screening to rule out Down’s Syndrome or other syndromes
- Women who have suffered 2 or more miscarriages
- Women desiring to lower their risk of a miscarriage
- Women having multiple failed IVF cycles
- Women who desire Family Balancing via Gender Selection
