PICSI

This technique is designed to improve the results of ICSI, increasing the chances of fertilization. Find out the details.

What is PICSI?

The fertilization technique called Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is designed to help specific cases improve the outcome of ICSI.

Although both techniques look for the best quality sperm to achieve a pregnancy, PICSI helps to select the most qualified sperm, which are the best prospects for creating a healthy embryo.

Therefore, by this method, the selected spermatozoa are of higher quality than those selected conventionally by observation alone, reducing risks during pregnancy, such as miscarriage.

Who is it recommended for?

This technique is recommended in cases with:
Low sperm count (oligozoospermia)
Irregular motility and morphology (asthenozoospermia or teratozoospermia)
Absence of spermatozoa (azoospermia)
High fragmentation of sperm DNA
Sperm cells unable to fertilize an egg cell

How is this done?

To select a good quality sperm, a drop of hyaluronic acid is used, placed on a special culture plate, which is the main component of the cells surrounding the egg, as well as a micropipette.
In PICSI, we use the special sterile culture plate with three microdroplets of hyaluronic acid hydrogel, where the competent spermatozoa, obtained from the semen sample, will remain, giving better results than in ICSI.
Several tests show that only mature and competent sperm have the necessary receptors for binding to the egg in their cell membrane, so the sperm selected for PICSI will always be of the highest quality to fertilize.
We have the necessary equipment and technology to perform ICSI and PICSI techniques in case they are require In Vitro Fertilizationtreatments, which we have perfected to create the Multicycle Programs and increase your chances of having a baby at home.
