What is MicroSort?

MicroSort is a scientifically proven preconception process that improves the chances that the baby you conceive will be of the desired gender.

Semen samples usually contain equal amounts of sperm carrying the Y chromosome (which will produce a boy), and sperm carrying the X chromosome (which will produce a girl).

The MicroSort process separates the sperm cells in a semen sample based on the chromosome they are carrying. The process results in samples containing significantly increased percentages of sperm that are carrying the desired (X or Y) chromosome.

The samples processed by MicroSort can be used in a wide variety of artificial reproduction techniques, including intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), among others.

Only MicroSort laboratories have the technology to perform this precise sperm sorting procedure, and we offer this technology in collaboration with clinics and physicians around the world. The availability of MicroSort in specific locations is dependent upon local regulations.
