The RI MSC™ (Migration Sedimentation Chamber), is designed to separate vigorous, A-motile sperm from non-motile or abnormal sperm and ejaculate debris.

Selection of sperm with good motility and results in increased fertilisation rates. The RI MSC™ is a simple and effective system with very low preparation time which eliminates the need for centrifuge and consequently avoids sperm tail damage and induction of reactive oxygen species.

Each unit is single use, individually packaged and gamma irradiated.
