A giant scanner has been successfully used to sort 'good' sperm from 'bad'.
The team at the University of Sheffield hope their technique might one day help develop diagnostic tests and treatments for male infertility.
Mouse sperm stored aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for nine months has been used to produce healthy pups back on Earth.
Japanese researchers sent freeze-dried sperm to space to understand the long-term effects of microgravity and radiation exposure on mammalian reproduction and development. The sperm were stored at -95ºC, with researchers also using 'ground control' sperm from the same mice, stored in the same conditions on Earth for the same duration.

Flushing the fallopian tubes of infertile women with a poppyseed-based oil increases their chances of conceiving, according to a new study.
The procedure, called a hysterosalpingography (HSG), dates back to 1917 and is normally used to diagnose fertility problems.
Fully functional 3D-printed ovaries have been successfully implanted in mice for the first time - enabling them to have healthy offspring.
A team led by researchers at Northwestern University, Illinois, removed ovaries from female mice and replaced them with bioprosthetic ones that were capable of ovulating. The mice became pregnant naturally and gave birth to pups that thrived with their mothers' nursing.

The UK IVF industry is highly reliant on patients being recommended IVF treatment directly on the basis of one poor RCT with a low IUI success rate of 7%/cycle used by NICE.
Children born through IVF are at an increased risk of some childhood cancers, suggests a new study.
The incidence of childhood cancers was almost three times higher in in children born to mothers who had used IVF compared with those who were conceived spontaneously. The difference was 1.5 per 1000 compared with 0.59 per 1000 children, according to the paper which was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
