Sperm Separation (Microsort)
Flow cytometric separation technology separates X bearing sperm from the Y bearing sperm. However, a sample that is prepared after the separation technique will not consist entirely of one type of sperm. Sex selection techniques work to increase your chances of having a child of one sex or the other.
Normally 50% of semen contains X bearing sperm and 50% Y bearing sperm. Through Microsort technology one can obtain a sample that contains 88% X bearing sperm or 73% Y bearing sperm. One can use the resulting sample for Artificial Insemination or In Vitro Fertilization (IUI). This results in a 60-70% chance of obtaining a desired gender.
