    Microfluidic Chips for Male Infertility Patients
    Author(s): Şirin Aydın* and Mehmet Eflatun Deniz

    Although Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) was originally considered a promising method for overcoming male factor infertility, its use has been reported to be expanding globally, even in cases of nonmale factor infertility, despite a lack of reliable data demonstrating its benefits. The increasing use of ICSI underscores the importance of improved sperm selection. At the moment, ICSI selection of sperm cells is restricted to motility and morphology under high magnification. Prior to ICSI, it is necessary to generate a pool of spermatozoa that contains the highest quality and competence cells. This increases the likelihood of selecting and injecting superior spermatozoa with superior results. Swim up and density gradient centrifugation are the two current sperm sorting and selection methods used in clinical IVF. Microfluidics is one of the most modern methods for sperm sorting. ..
