Intracytoplasmic Morphologically selected Sperm Injection is an additional technique we can use as part of the ICSI process, to help select the best sperm for fertilisation.

When is it necessary?

IMSI may be used if the semen analysis suggests abnormal sperm morphology (shape).

How does it work?

IMSI uses a high-powered microscope that magnifies structures over 6000 times, allowing us to visualise the sperm’s head, midpiece and tail. This enables our scientists to better identify any structural abnormalities that would prevent the sperm from fertilising the egg. This knowledge facilitates improved selection of sperm, thereby improving the likelihood of successful fertilisation.
