IVF / ART Microscope Systems

In vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), intracytoplasmic morphologically-selected sperm injection IMSI) and assisted reproductive technology (ART) are technologies for fertility treatment in both humans and animals. Eggs (also known as ova) are removed from a female and fertilized outside the body (in vitro) with sperm. Fertilized eggs (zygotes) are then implanted back into the female uterus to establish a pregnancy.  For semen analysis and sperm preparation mainly an upright microscope is used. Male infertility is diagnosed by detailed semen analysis that look specifically at the total volume, the number of motile sperm per milliliter (ml) and sperm morphology. The pre-selection of the sperm takes place in glass dishes, requiring a microscope with DIC or polarization. Harvested cells are kept in culture dishes at body temperature. For examination and selection microscopes with heating stages are essential. First sortings are often performed with a compact stereo microscope.
