Hi,

Have you had any patients that have used microsort, as I have discussed this with several RE's who say microsorted sperm looks lousy and fertilization rates with microsorted sperm are terrible (even with ICSI)?? Just wandering what your experience has been??

Thanks-Heidi

However, I have not noticed any decrease in fertilization rates using Microsorted sperm. Neither have I heard any complaints from other embryologists about decreased fertilization rates with Microsorted sperm. Perhaps the RE's perception is different from the embryologists who actually work with the Microsorted sperm. Whenever RE's start talking about lab stuff...
