Advanced MicroSort Laboratory
MicroSort® is a scientifically proven preconception process that dramatically improves the chances that the baby you conceive will be of the gender you desire. Semen samples typically comprise of an equal amount of sperm carrying the Y chromosome (which will produce a boy), and sperm carrying the X chromosome (which will produce a girl). The MicroSort method splits the sperm cells based on the chromosome they are carrying. The process results in samples comprising of significantly amplified fractions of sperm that are carrying the desired X or Y chromosome.
MicroSort® can be used in a wide variety of artificial reproduction techniques, including Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), and Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), among others.
MicroSort® vs. PGD
What is the benefit of MicroSort® technologies over PGD for family balancing? MicroSort® allows us to choose ONLY the desired embryos — specifically eliminating the discarding of unused embryos. MicroSort® used in concert with IVF provides a greater chance for having normal embryos of the desired gender available for transfer and cryopreservation.
