Using Magnetic Fields to Select Healthy Sperm: MACS (Magnetic Activated Cell Sorting)

It is well known that having the best possible sperm quality is important to the success of assisted reproduction techniques. To achieve this, the lab has to improve sperm quality based on its motility and morphology, selecting the sperm that is considered to be the best.
However in every ejaculate sperm with abnormal membranes are found, which are programmed to “die”. This process is called apoptosis, or programmed cell death.   Approximately 20% of sperm in subfertile patients are  thought to be in the process of “celular death”. […]

Unraveling the mysteries of ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection)

We’re dedicating this Instituto Bernabeu forum topic to a very common technique used in the human reproduction laboratory: ICSI or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. We have prepared this explicative video on the topic, in which Dr. Jorge Ten simply explains what this technique involves, how it is performed, its indications, history and evolution, as well as our reproductive biology team’s efforts to perfect the results. We hope you like it! […]
