    What is PICSI?

    PICSI is based on bonding a ripe sperm onto specially treated surface of a Petri dish. The head of a ripe sperm carries a specific receptor allowing its bonding to hyaluronate. This substance represents an important part of the intercellular substance of egg shells; it is the bonding of a sperm to hyaluronate that is crucial for fertilization. During the PICSI method, ripe sperm is bonded to gel with hyaluronate, thus allowing an embryologist to select the most suitable ones, using them to fertilize the eggs by intracytoplasmatic injection (=ICSI).
