Who should use IMSI ?

Intracytoplasmic Morphological Sperm Injection (IMSI) is a technique used to treat male factor infertility in men who have highly abnormal sperm, specifically a normal sperm morphology of less than 4%.

We also recommend IMSI for patients who have had low fertilisation rates or failed implantation in previous IVF cycles despite good quality eggs.

What is IMSI ?

During the IMSI process, sperm samples are analysed by our Clinical Embryologist using a high powered microscope which is close to 6000 times more powerful than the normal ICSI microscopes.

Why is IMSI beneficial ?

The IMSI technique enables the Team Miracle embryologists to select the very best quality sperm from the sample provided to inject into each egg, thereby increasing the fertilisation rate, the success of implantation and, more importantly, the live birth rate.

If you have any further questions regarding IMSI at Cyprus IVF Centre, please contact one of our Team Miracle Patient Coordinators for more information.
