OF OUR NEXT GENERATION
In Vitro Microfluidic Fertilisation
An Industry Leader
With our innovative and insightful technology, we strive to enhance our users’ every day experiences. Started in 2000, our incredible team of experts, researchers and engineers have worked tirelessly to bring the technology of Microgenesis to the forefront of the industry. Proudly introduced to you as the IVmF device, a sperm selection device with the most up-to-date technology that would change the future of our next generation.
WHY SPERM SELECTION IS IMPORTANT
Infertility has become a growing global health concern affecting over 50 million couples around the world with male infertility contributing to almost half of these worldwide cases. Although the demand for assisted reproductive technology (ART) is ever-growing, the success rate of each ART cycle is only 33%, leaving helpless couples in stressful and repetitive cycles of trying and failing

All ART procedures require sperm separation from raw semen. This includes:
intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
intrauterine insemination (IUI)
in vitro fertilisation (IVF)
But not all sperms are created equal, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes which means some are better suited to fertilisation than others. Often times, nature needs a helping hand when sorting healthy sperm from the ones with unrecognisable damages.
When selecting the best sperm for the job, clinicians tend to look at a sperms motility (speed), morphology (shape), vitality, and DNA integrity (level of DNA damage), and concentration.
Conventional sperm selection methods, such as density gradient centrifugation (DGC) ignores natural sperm motility and uses high shear forces in combination with multiple centrifugations which leave sperm cells with high chance of DNA damage and the overall ART cycle with increased risk of failure and miscarriage.
Inbuilt Micro Channels
Through our discoveries in sperm motion, our IVmF device uses micro channels to provide sperm guidance that simulates the cervical, uterine, and fallopian tube pathways that sperm must navigate to naturally fertilize an egg, taking the best filter that mother nature has to offer and effectively replacing the harmful shear forces of conventional sperm selection with a gentle but effective solution.
Without the use of damaging chemicals and DGC, the IVmF device is capable of selecting the most motile and vital sperm cells with improved DNA fragmentation index (DFI) and high DNA stainability (HDS) that can be used in all ART procedures including ICSI, IUI and IVF.
Our IVmF device is able to purify raw semen and select sperm cells with high DNA integrity in as little as 15 minutes. With reduced human interactions, the IVmF device can be trusted to provide a highly standardised selection of high quality sperm with no subjectivity.
