The SpermComet™ looks just like a ‘comet’ in the sky. Here the tail of the SpermComet™ is the damaged DNA. We can look at your sperm individually and measure any damage. This gives you a much more detailed result than other infertility tests making it possible to identify DNA fragmentation through our unique male infertility test.
About half (52.9%) of fresh IVF treatments in 2011 involved ICSI, a similar proportion to that seen in recent years (51.9% in 2010, 52.1% in 2009). Because ICSI involves the injection of a single sperm into an egg, it can be used in male factor infertility, for instance low sperm count, or low sperm motility. This is reflected in Figure 3, where the proportion of male factor infertility treated with ICSI is much greater than that by standard IVF.
