Sperm processing

  • After the sperm test has been carried out following the procedure described earlier and spermatozoa number, motility and morphology have been determined, the sperm is mixed with special nutrients and incubated, so as to select an aliquot of the sperm which contains the most motile and, therefore, the best spermatozoa. This aliquot is used either for intrauterine insemination or for in vitro fertilisation.
