PICSI technique: what you need to know about it

Did you know that In Vitro Fertilization has some variations according to your diagnosis to increase your chances of success? These are:

  • Conventional In Vitro Fertilization
  • In Vitro Fertilization by ICSI technique.
  • In Vitro Fertilization In Vitro by PICSI Technique

In this article, we will explain what you need to know about the PICSI technique to achieve your baby.

PICSI: the most advanced technique in Assisted Reproduction treatments

When cases arise in which IVF by Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) does not produce the desired results, fertility specialists recommend In Vitro Fertilization by PICSI, designed primarily to improve the practice of ICSI.

The PICSI technique is specifically recommended in complicated cases of male infertility, in which spermatozoa are very scarce or have motility or morphology problems.

How is IVF by PICSI performed?


The process begins by preparing a sterile culture plate with three hyaluronic acid hydrogel microdots (a substance that aids implantation) on the inside bottom. 

This plate has three raised locator lines on the outside bottom to help the reproductive specialist find the microdots

Once the sperm adheres to the hyaluronic acid, the one most suitable for fertilization is selected and injected directly into the egg. Subsequently, the usual procedure of transferring the resulting embryo to the uterus for development continues.
