The problem with visual gamete assessment

The visual assessment of human germ cells (gametes) is a very critical point of quality assurance.

For sperms the criteria are defined by the WHO, for zygotes, oocytes and embryos described in medical books and specialist journals.

The problem: In most of the laboratories the morphology  and motility will be still assessed visually with a microscope. Consequently, the result is subjective and can have, depending on the experience, a significant measurement error .



The online training brings significant improvement

With a continuous training, using GameteExpert, this measurement error can considerably be reduced.
