IMSI-6600: injection of a morphologically selected sperm cell
In vitro fertilization using the IMSI method utilizes advanced digital-optical technology that enables the selection of a sperm cell for cell intracytoplasmic injection based on a microscopic image magnification of up to 12,000 times.
IMSI is a technique that allows the detection of morphological changes in sperm cell organelles (especially in the testicles), which are very difficult to identify with standard ICSI, a technique using magnifications up to 600 times.
The qualification for the use of the IMSI method is in particular the abnormal result of the MSOME test, which is recommended in the case of severe teratozoospermia, i.e. a very seriously reduced percentage of morphologically normal sperm cells in the extended sperm test. The technique is also recommended for couples struggling with recurrent implantation failures, recurrent miscarriages and failure to obtain high quality embryos in previous IVF cycles. The use of the IMSI technique in these cases increases the probability of obtaining better quality embryos and achieving and maintaining a pregnancy.
Indications for the in vitro procedure using IMSI:
- severe teratozoospermia and/or an abnormal MSOME test result,
- recurrent miscarriages,
- recurrent implantation failures,
- failures and poor quality of embryos in previous IVF cycles.
