Sperm washing is the process in which individual sperms are separated from the semen. Washed sperm is used in artificial insemination using the intrauterine insemination IUI technique and in in vitro fertilization IVF. It may also be used to decrease the risk of HIV transmission by an HIV-positive male, in which case the washed sperm is injected into a female using an artificial insemination technique.
An optimal sperm preparation should result in a sufficient number of motile, morphologically normal spermatozoa with maintained viability. Vitrolife offers solutions to all the challenges of sperm preparation the embryologist meets.
