Scientists have created new technology to help couples undergoing in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) due to male fertility problems. About one in six people worldwide is affected by infertility, and male infertility plays a role in around 30% of cases. Researchers from the University of Technology Sydney and NeoGenix Biosciences have developed a microfluidic sperm selection device that provides a more reliable process for selecting high-quality sperm. This new technology is a 3D printed device that replicates the female reproductive tract and the natural sperm selection process. The new method showed an 85% improvement in DNA integrity and a 90% reduction in sperm cell death compared to traditional methods. The researchers have partnered with Monash University and Australian IVF clinics to implement the technology into clinical practice.
