Good fertilisation rates require high quality sperm

Proper selection of sperm is key to good results. A semen sample contains a mixture of functional and non-functional spermatozoa. Selection of functional sperm cells is required for the fertilisation procedure. To obtain a good fertilisation rate and resulting good quality embryos, the semen sample needs to be prepared so that the spermatozoa of highest quality can be obtained and used for fertilisation. This blog post discusses different alternatives for sperm selection.
