Comparing HEPES-buffered With Bicarbonate-buffered as Handling Media During the ICSI Procedure on Live Birth Rate


Brief description of study

The pH stability during human gamete handling for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is physiologically sound. As the pH change for bicarbonate-buffered medium, scientists assumed whether the use of HEPES or MOPS buffered medium would provide more stable pH, thereby better outcomes. However, the oil use and time frame outside the incubators have not been accounted for. This study is to evaluate the use of HEPES buffered medium compared with the bicarbonate-buffered medium on ICSI outcomes.
