High Magnification Sperm inspection (IMSI)

Prior to sperm injection the morphology of the sperm cell is evaluated with high magnification DIC microscopy.
Leica Microsystems offers an aplication optimized system called the Leica "Big S". This has been developped in close cooperation with the lab of Prof. S. Viville, Strassbourg, France. Leica AM6000 with "Big S" has been installed in multiple IVF labs.
