Hey girls, I’ve been thinking about PGD and CCS lately. As far as I know most clinics (asides from big ones like CCRM) send the sample away to a DNA lab to get the test done. So here’s my question:
When 5 cells are taken out of the blastocyst — is this part done in the IVF clinic? And then they send the cells to a genetic lab while freezing the blast, is that right? So in that case the blast is only frozen once.
If I were to do mini IVF and get less blasts each time, is it possible to save all the 5 cells samples (frozen?) from different cycles for a one time CCS? Or would I have to pay for CCS per cycle?
Have a feeling this might be a ridiculous question…but I’ve been confused about it for a while…
