There's been a lot in the media this week about new ivf screening which could more than double chances of live births http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/2009/10/19/new-ivf-treatment-dramatically-increases-chances-of-suc cessful-pregnancy-86908-21758189/
Does anyone know whether it's available in the uk?
The Lister have offered me Preimplantation Genetic Aneuploidy Screening which seems to be along those lines - it detects genetic abnormalities which lead to implantation failure, pregnancy loss or the birth of a child with a chromosonal disorder but I don't know whether it's the same as that shown in the articles I've read.

Anyone know anything about it?

Just found the link - main thing to note is that it adds £2000k to cost of a cycle which if you are already funding it yourself (as we are) is prohibitively expensive especially as already paying extra for ICSI and blastocysts. Will have to stick to fingers crossed approach ...
