The best timing of vitrification after blastocyst biopsy

What is the correlation between the vitrification timing after biopsy and the following clinical outcomes? 
Time is what we want most, but we use worst.

Through preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), couples with the indications of repeated implantation failure, recurrent miscarriage, and advanced maternal age, may select the chromosomally normal embryo to transfer (euploid embryo transfer). On the widely-used PGS platform—aCGH (now has been gradually replaced by next-generation sequencing system), the tested embryos must be vitrified after biopsy to wait for the PGS report release . When should the embryologists vitrify the biopsied embryo? Does the timing of vitrification correlate with the following clinical outcomes?

Never say never — Preimplantation genetic screening reveals the quality of embryos

Perseverance is the hard work you do 

after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. 

One more try is the only shortcut to success.

"Hello, Celine."

I am a Japanese-speaking consultant at Icryobank (Overseas division of Stork Fertility Center). She was my first Chinese-speaking case from Hong Kong. When we first met, she insisted to take the autologous IVF treatment at age 42. We both knew that it would be a long and hard way to go, and many centers would just suggest patients with this age taking the donation program instead of autologous IVF. She did not give up.

Since then, I became her special agent.
