Did you know that Dr. Zhang’s patients who are being treated for male-factor infertility have a high chance of IVF pregnancy success through his use of High Resolution Sperm Selection (HRSS) technology? It can’t be emphasized enough. The best quality embryos are created in vitro by using the healthiest sperm to fertilize one good egg.
Look: Male-factor infertility is the cause – or a contributing factor – of a couple’s inability to get pregnant naturally in one-third of cases. Why does this matter? Quality selection of sperm is crucial. The best part? The process HRSS and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration has improved overall IVF pregnancy success rates.
In addition to noticeable increases in pregnancy success rates achieved through HRSS technology, studies have shown a decline in the rate of spontaneous abortions occurring in IVF pregnancies.
High Resolution Sperm Selection (HRSS) optimizes the selection of a quality sperm for direct injection into a woman’s egg in vitro. Higher positive pregnancy rates
Using HRSS, our embryologists are able to better visualize sperm for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration. Identifying and choosing high quality sperm to fertilize an egg is crucial in male-factor infertility cases. Any and all negative influence of male-factor infertility must be negated to ensure successful embryo development. Why does this matter? HRSS technology is helping embryologists see, identify, and choose only high quality sperm cells for fertilization of an egg in vitro. Bottom line: Couples who have multiple failed IVF cycles are the primary benefactors of HRSS.
New Hope Fertility Center is one of only a few fertility treatment providers offering HRSS technology to treat male-factor infertility. Look: HRSS optimizes the sperm selection process for improving the success of ICSI.
At 6000 x magnification – using Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy – it is possible for embryologists to see finer morphological details of sperm. Using conventional 500 x magnification, these details would go unnoticed.
The best part? By viewing sperm cells at 6000 x magnification, lab technicians can identify quality sperm cells that are optimum for fertilization of a healthy egg.
Once optimum sperm cells have been identified, a two-pronged process takes place.
Once the quality sperm cells are selected and separated using HRSS, they are injected into the egg for fertilization. Each egg receives a single sperm injection.
A sperm cell’s normal appearance makes it more likely to be comprised of normal chromosomes and DNA structure. Here’s the deal: Optimum sperm morphology correlates directly with successful egg fertilization and embryo implantation. Morphology is the most important criteria when judging the quality of a sperm cell.
