The couples with infertility due to male factors can through ICSI to fertilize ovum. When sperm quantity is rare and the activity is poor and the fertilization rate is affected due to abnormal patterns or penetrating trouble, under 200-400 times of inverted microscope, use thin needle to absorb a single sperm and directly inject it to an ovum, activating to fertilize ovum, and then implant the fertilized ovum into wife’s uterus after 2-5 days.
ICSI technology makes it possible for the weak and abnormal sperm patients to have their own children. Even for the unhealthy sperms, the fertilization rate of each ovum after ICSI can reach 70%, and it can even reach 99% if woman’s ovum is good enough. Pregnancy success rate of each cycle has exceeded 50%, almost the same as the success rate of normal sperms which are receiving natural fertilization. Most of all, no matter how bad the sperm’s situation is, the growth, mental condition and gens of the baby who is born with this method are very normal.
Furthermore, Honji Fertility Center can carry out Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection after screening sperms under ultra-high zoom magnification of 10,000 times. At present, there are only a handful of laboratories in Taiwan own such high magnification microscope, namely ICSI based Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected sperm Injection (IMSI), which was developed by Professor Bartoov from Israel in 2002, can carry out Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection on the sperms with good shape and size under the high magnification microscope which is 4 times higher than the present standard laboratory resolution. According to the experiment results, IMSI technology is significantly better than ICSI, which the pregnancy probability has increased nearly 13%.
