Sorting the girls from the boys

reproducibly increased the proportion of X-bearing sperm and resulted in a dramatic rise in the percentage of female embryos obtained after IVF - up from 50% to over 90%.

"Another important factor is that it may result in sufficient embryos for one or more frozen embryo transfer cycles as well, which means the woman may be able to avoid having to undergo additional IVF cycles if the first transfer is unsuccessful."

He said that as of May this year, 297 MicroSort pregnancies had been achieved and 187 babies had been born so far. The MicroSort facility is currently based at Fairfax but other locations are being considered and semen can be sorted and frozen for use with IVF and/or PGD by collaborators around the world.
