Summary We developed a new type of microfluidic chip with utilizing the characteristic of sperm anadromous instinct for high-throughput sperm separation. The process can be finished in 10 min, which is 10 times faster than the conventional design. Experiment reveals that the qualified sperm motility was raised up from 30 to 99linearity (LIN) up from 0.2 to 0.85 via sorting by our microfluidic chip.
