PICSI® for Sperm Selection
The PICSI® dish is based on the research documenting that mature and structurally sound sperm will bind to hyaluronan.
For sperm with poor binding capability as measured on the HBA slide, significant improvements in Clinical Pregnancy rates result when the PICSI® dish is used to idenitfy the bound sperm for ICSI.
- The sterile PICSI® Dish utilizes a conventional polystyrene culture dish enhanced with 3 microdots of hyaluronan
- Sperm is added to the dot of hyaluronan and within minutes the bound sperm are attached by their acrosome to the surface of the dot
- An ICSI microtool is used to select the bound sperm for ICSI
- Selecting a bound sperm ensures that the sperm selected is the optimal sperm from the sample
