MicroFluidic based platform for SeMen Analysis

Project description

A device for the automatic analysis of semen

The EU-funded MicroFSMA project is developing an efficient, automated method for semen analysis and the isolation of quality sperm for in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The device will fill in a technological gap in the fertility sector and improve the detection of male infertility. It consists of three microfluidic chips and generates a thermal and chemical gradient to resemble the physical environment of the female reproductive tract. Responsive sperm cells are monitored through a computer that creates successive time-lapse images. Analysis of the flagella movement and the overall sperm trajectory towards the environmental cues will provide important information on sperm kinetics and hence fertility.
