MicroSort technique

 

This method was first reported by the Genetics and in vitro fertilisation Institute (GIVF-3) in USA. It involves the test tube method of sorting out sperm cells so that X and Y bearing sperm cell can be separated. This involves the use of flow cytometric method of separation . The chromosome bearing sperm cells are then pooled in relation to the gender need, so that Y chromosome containing cells are pooled for male and X for female. The pooled sperm cells are then used to inseminate the ovum either in vitro or in vivo. Because you do not necessarily need a sophisticated test tube system or in vitro fertilisation, this method is simpler than the PGD above. It has 70-90% success rates.
