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