Strict Criteria Brought to IMSI
The Only Automated Software Solution for Live Sperm Morphology under High Magnification
IMSI Strict software was developed using the standards of the Tygerberg Strict Criteria, in cooperation with Prof. T.F. Kruger, Stellenbosch and Tygerberg Hospital, South Africa and evaluated by Prof. J. Parinaud, Toulouse, France.
IMSI-Strict combines Tygerberg Strict Criteria with motile sperm organelle morphology examination (MSOME) and provides software-based categorization using head size, head shape, mid-piece, and number of vacuoles. Using these analyzed parameters, sperm are assigned to one of three categories - normal, sub-normal or abnormal (see last page for detailed descriptions of each category).
