This question is forwarded to the embryologist as they are responsible for the embryo biopsies, the procedure of aspiration of the cells from the blastocyst so the embryologist is an important person with important technical skills. If the embryologist relies on the morphology of the embryo and thinks the embryo is a very good developing embryo and can reapply a blastocyst biopsy then the chance of losing this embryo after biopsy is very small. However, if the embryo is not well developed and the biopsy of the embryologist is moderate, then the survival rate depends on this and won’t be very high. 

About this question:

Does genetic testing have impact on survival rate of embryos?

Genetic testing is suggested in some clinics for all embryos and couples, in others only where there is indication for it. What impact has the biopsy on embryos and what statistics can say about it?
