The MicroSort® Sorting Process
MicroSort® sperm sorting technology is based on flow cytometry in combination with a special software which maximizes the sorting efficiency for X and Y-bearing sperm cells.
Currently, sperm sorting by MicroSort® technology for X-bearing and Y-bearing sperm gives 93% and 82% sorting efficiency respectively and by using these sperm for IVF maximizes the production of embryos with a desired gender.
The application of PGD is also widely used for couples wishing to avoid initiation of a pregnancy with abnormal chromosomes or a specific disease such as Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Cystic Fibrosis. MicroSort® can be combined with PGD to increase the number of embryos of a desired gender available for transfer.
