ZyMōtTM sperm selection device
The ZyMōtTM sperm selection device has been developed to assist in cases where there is high DNA fragmentation in the sperm. When high sperm DNA fragmentation is noted it is important to select sperm with lower DNA fragmentation since otherwise the embryo development and implantation can be affected by the fragmentation.
The ZyMōtTM sperm selection device uses membranes to select sperm with low DNA fragmentation. It has been demonstrated in several studies to be able to select spermatozoa with normal DNA fragmentation that can then be used in an IVF cycle. The ZyMōtTM also avoids use of the centrifuge in the sperm preparation process also which can be an additional source of fragmentation in susceptible samples.
