Our Lab

Spindle Visualisation

We use a vast range of advanced equipment and other tools to ensure we are giving your eggs, sperm and embryos the best chance of success.  This includes polarised light microscopy, a technology that enables us to visualise a structure within the egg, known as the spindle.  The spindle is a structure that holds the egg’s DNA and thus is highly important for fertilisation.  By visualizing this spindle prior to insemination via ICSI for every egg, we can position it to avoid damage to this important structure.
