ivf-ericssonThe LIV Fertility Center uses a modified version of the Ericsson technique for gender selection to provide high success rates. The Ericsson Method of sex selection is a technique based on the fact that sperm carrying the Y chromosome swim faster than sperm carrying the X chromosome — in turn slowing down the X chromosome.

During our unique laboratory process, we take a sperm sample from the male and suspend it in Albumin solution. The solution is then put into a centrifuge and spun to separate the male from the female chromosomes.

The sperm that carries the preferred chromosome (X for female and Y for male) is then used In vitro Fertilization (IVF).

Advantage of Ericsson Method

Clinical data suggests that The Ericsson Method of sex selection produced a success rate of 68-75 percent for male sex selection and 63-65 percent for female gender selection. The method of Ericsson for Gender Selection is completed on the sperm and does not involve the manipulation of embryos. The Ericsson Method performed by our Lead Embryologist, Emb. Karla Ruiz, is completely safe and reliable.
