SpermCatch ™ is a natural alternative to polyvinyl plastic for slowing sperm for ICSI.
Until now, the only products available for slowing sperm motility contained polyvinylpyrrolidone. Clinicians are concerned that injecting this artificial product into the oocyte along with the sperm may cause damage to acrosomal, mitochondrial and plasma membranes, as well as to the chromosomal DNA.
Now clinicians have an alternative method for modulating sperm motility.
Due to the stable formulation the shelf-life is as long as 1 year SpermCatch ™ contains only substances normally found in the mammalian reproductive tract. Exposure of sperm to SpermCatch™, not only slows sperm, but also mimics the naturally occurring sequence of events during in vivo fertilization.
