Dear Marina

Sperm sorting by normal means i.e. in a laboratory where sperm of techniques are employed, are not accurate enough to be recommended in this situation.The only accurate method is by means of a laser self sorter which to my knowledge is not available in South Africa. The normal self-sorter which are used for stem seperations etc. will not suffice for sperm sorting as special modifications are required.
