Our recently installed LYKOS laser system helps our embryologist create a small opening in the shell of the embryo
to help it implant after it is transferred into the uterus. This process is called Laser Assisted Hatching or LAH . The
laser is also utilized to perform biopsy of the embryo to identify genetic defects before it is transferred into the uterus
(Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis or PGD).
