At Aaranya Biosciences we use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to analyze chromosomal abnormalities or disorders. NGS is ideal for couples planning Invitro fertilization, as it requires only a few or single cells for Preimplantation genetic testing (PGS). Our PGS testing with NGS has an accuracy of 99%.
