How does it work?
The sperm is collected at our clinic in private rooms. You fill a sterile container with your ejaculate, and it is taken to the laboratory for examination.
Halosperm is a diagnostic kit that allows quick, easy and reproducible measurement of DNA fragmentation. Sperm also affects the genetic material of the embryo. If the genetic material of the sperm is damaged and subject to fragmentation, this may lead to a decrease in the number of cultivated blastocysts, a decrease in implementation or miscarriage.
When to use the Halosperm test?
This method can be utilized at the beginning of the treatment to determine the quality of the sperm, which plays a role in fertilization as well as in the development of the embryo. This method can be used by:
- Couples with a history of miscarriages
- Couples with unexplained infertility lasting more than 6 months
- Men over 40
- Men with a history of cancer
- Men taking prescription drugs
- Men exposed to toxic substances
- Men who have had urogenital infections
- Men with unhealthy lifestyle habits: smokers, people with sedentary lifestyles, an unbalanced diet, or obese people.
- Couples with poor embryo quality during the second egg donation cycle
- Men with an unknown male factor
Other laboratory methods
ICSI is the injection of sperm directly into an egg. This significantly increases the chance of fertilisation.More information
We can increase the chances of pregnancy by selecting only the best quality embryos for transfer. We can identify these through continuous monitoring in EmbryoScope.More information
The PICSI method is an improvement of the ICSI procedure. Only specifically selected sperm are used for fertilisation and these are injected directly into the egg. PICSI increases the chances of pregnancy and reduces the risk of miscarriage.More information
In the absence of live sperm in the ejaculate, there is the possibility of obtaining sperm surgically from the epididymis (PESA or MESA) or testis (TESE).More information
This method is used to disrupt the protective envelope (outer shell) of the embryo in order to make it easier to implant (nest) in the uterus.More information

IVF using donor eggs
If a woman cannot conceive and her partner's sperm are healthy, we use donor eggs fertilised with the partner's sperm.More information
