BIOMATERNITY Fertility Specialsts-PICSI - Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

PICSI
Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

PICSI – Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is an innovative technique where the single viable sperm to be microinjected into the extracted egg is selected based on its ability to bind to specific molecules that are physiologically surrounding a mature-ready to be fertilized-egg.
The use of IMSI for sperm selection significantly improves fertilization rate and embryo quality and thus the IVF outcome.

 

Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (PICSI) is similar to ICSI but differs in the criteria used to select the single viable sperm to be microinjected into the extracted egg.
While in ICSI the sperm’s selection criteria are based on the visual observation in the microscope, in PICSI the selection is made by imitating the selection that is made in human biology during fertilization of the sperm with the egg.
The mature egg to be fertilized is surrounded by a specific negatively charged polysaccharide called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Hyaluronan and for fertilization to occur the sperm must be able to bind to it. During PICSI sperm is placed in dish containing samples of Hyaluronan hydrogel and competent, mature, biochemically active sperm binds to it and is selected and used for ICSI.
