IMSI Technique

In the prevalent ICSI technique,the sperm is magnified 200 times whereas in the IMSI technique the sperm is magnified 7000 times.At such magnification the sperm morphological defects namely the subtle intra-nuclear sperm defects and the chromatin compaction defects get easily detected which the prevalent technique fails to detect.Only the morphologically normal sperm under this magnification is used for ICSI by our embryologist.This leads to higher fertilization rates,higher implantation rates,and ultimately higher ‘take home baby’ rates.It also reduces early abortion rates by 40% thereby improving ultimate outcome of the test tube baby technique (ICSI technique).IMSI technique is immensely beneficial for:-

  1. Patients with more than 2 ICSI failures,
  2. Patients where there is severe male factor abnormality e.g. severe oligoasthenospermia,normal sperm count but higher percentage of abnormal sperms,elderly male partners etc
  3. Recurrent first trimester aborters-here the conventional ICSI does succeed but results in early abortions
  4. Patients with prolonged Unexplained Infertility
