Gender Selection

At Nairobi IVF Centre – Dar es Salaam we enable some forms of gender selection to the parents-to-be. We use microsorting of sperm for this purpose and pre-implantation genetic testing.

Sperm microsorting involves enriching the sperm of 1 gender by leveraging the different weights of male and female sperm.

Pre-implantation genetic testing involves genetic analysis of some cells of the 5-day embryo before implantation. The genetic analysis is able to detect the sex chromosome of the embryo and potentially guide in sex selection.
