MicroSort is a scientifically proven preconception process that improves the chances that the baby you conceive will be of the desired gender. Semen samples usually contain equal amounts of sperm carrying the Y chromosome which will produce a boy , and sperm carrying the X chromosome which will produce a girl. Thanks again for all your help with everything during my recent trip to Guadalajara. What a beautiful city! Thank you so much for going above and beyond all normal limits in order to help me out with my situation.
MicroSort International | Where hope meets science
It currently the only method to perform sex selection by controlling what sperm fertilizes the egg. Since , the Institute has been an innovator in infertility treatment and genetics care and has helped thousands of patients worldwide realize their dreams of starting a family. Afterwards the sample is stained with a special fluorescent stain that attaches temporarily to the DNA contained in the spermatozoa. The spermatozoa containing the X chromosome which have more DNA and therefore more stain will have a bigger shine than the spermatozoa containing the Y chromosome.
Sperm sorting is a means of choosing what type of sperm cell is to fertilize the egg cell. Several conventional techniques of centrifugation or swim-up. Newly applied methods such as flow cytometry expand the possibilities of sperm sorting and new techniques of sperm sorting are being developed.
The idea was to use only XY sperm to fertilize the embryos, and you would get more male embryos. For reasons that remains a mystery, the FDA ruled against gender selection via sperm sorting. But as you pointed out, PGS is flawed because it can only test embryos and the gender is already determined at that point. So your odds of having a boy or a girl are not really helped by the test. That said, sperm sorting is having a renaissance thanks to a new technique which seems to be more successful than the old sorting process.
