Other artificial insemination lab techniques

Reproductive medicine offers many different methods to help people have a child. We use many of them right here in our laboratory. The special lab techniques our clinic offers are now the standard in reproductive medicine.

Availability and use of these techniques during treatment greatly increases the chances of a successful cycle. Your doctor and embryologist will advise you on the most suitable method for you based on your results.

Ovulation support

Inducing ovulation followed by correctly timed intercourse is one of the simplest, least invasive methods of treating infertility. After all, ovulation is the first step in the process of conception. More information.

Hormonal therapy

A micromanipulation method that makes it possible to collect the best mature sperm for assisted reproduction, similar to those successful in natural conception. More information.

MESA / TESE

Methods in which the doctor extracts sperm from the ducts of the epididymis or directly from the testicular tissue by microsurgical means. These methods are used when there are no sperm in the ejaculate. The success of the method depends on the cause of the absence of sperm.More information.

PICSI sperm selection

A micromanipulation method that makes it possible to collect the best mature sperm for assisted reproduction, similar to those successful in natural conception. More information.

IMSI

Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is an assisted reproductive technique for collecting sperm using a special microscope. This microscope can provide much greater magnifying power than those normally used in reproductive laboratories (approx. 6000 times vs. 400 times). This increased magnification makes it easier to recognize and eliminate sperm displaying abnormalities with a negative impact on treatment. More information.

MFSS Sperm sorting method

The MFSS method was developed to increase the chances of a successful outcome of the artificial insemination process. The principle of MFSS is to try to mimic the environment of the sperm's journey to the uterus in vitro and thus obtain the best quality sperm for downstream artificial insemination methods. More information.

Time lapse monitoring

Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is an assisted reproductive technique for collecting sperm using a special microscope. This microscope can provide much greater magnifying power than those normally used in reproductive laboratories (approx. 6000 times vs. 400 times). This increased magnification makes it easier to recognize and eliminate sperm displaying abnormalities with a negative impact on treatment. More information.

Extended culture

Usually embryos are cultivated in the lab for three to five days. Embryos cultivated for five days are referred to as “extended cultures”, because on the fifth day embryos reach the blastocyst stage.  Transferring the embryo at this stage gives it a greater chance of successful implantation. More information.

Assisted hatching

Assisted hatching is a lab technique that uses micromanipulation (laser) to create a small hole in the embryo’s protective lining, called the zona pellucida. This makes it easier for the embryo to implant in the uterus. More information.

EmbryoGlue

EmbryoGlue (EmbryoGlue medium for embryo transfer) is a special medium that increases the chances of successful conception. “Tissue adhesive” (hyaluronic acid) fixes embryos in place and helps them achieve better implantation. It also contains all the nutrients the embryo needs for optimal development after the transfer. More information.

Cryopreservation

Cryopreservation is performed using a method called vitrification, which “flash freezes” at temperatures reaching -196 C°. This is a quite gentle technique for freezing embryos and sperm, and the cell survival rate after thawing is very high (90%).

DNA analysis

DNA analysis includes a range of methods and tests to identify potential genetic problems that could lead to failed pregnancy attempts, spontaneous abortions or the birth of a child with a developmental defect. 

Alternative medicine

There are many ways of handling fertility issues. Besides conventional scientific methods, we also offer some “alternative” treatments in reproductive medicine. More about alternative reproduction medicine.

ZyMot

ZyMot method is a gentle and highly effective sperm selection system. It is used to prepare and select sperm with higher normal morphology, higher viability, motility, and DNA quality. At the same time, it avoids mechanical and chemical procedures that are known to potentially damage the sperm. This increases the chances of fertilization success, and subsequently the chances of successful pregnancy. More about this method.
