Natural Sperm Selection Microchip

Client: Future Fathers


Obtaining sperm for artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization involves spinning semen over 30,000 times in a high-speed centrifuge. This process can break up (fragment) the delicate DNA in the sperm heads, leading to lower pregnancy rates.

The Natural Sperm Selection Microchip is a new FDA-approved device that allows natural sperm selection with a near-zero rate of DNA fragmentation. It mimics the female reproductive tract, allowing only the healthiest and most robust sperm to transverse the length of the chip.
