Home Gender Selection Kit

Select baby gender

Due to the great demand and inquiries that we have received for "Home" Semen Analysis, we now have expanded on the BioTranz technology to bring you the latest development in Gender Selection.

Note: We can also use the sperm sorting technique and perform the insemination via IUI at our clinic for a fraction of the cost of IVF. Contact us for more information.

The procedure is simple:

  1. Home gender selection is a convenient and simple way to "up the odds" of having a baby of the desired gender (boy or girl). The procedure is rather simple and straight forward: You may place your order at any time prior to the procedure. Once you place your order, it will be necessary for you to physically come to our facilities where our technicians under the direction of Professor Zavos, will sort the male and/or female sperms and make them available to you where under the medical guidance and attendance of one of our referring OB/Gyn-infertility specialists will perform the placement of the semen sample into you via artificial insemination
  2. The process of gender selection via sperm selection increases the chance of having a female or male child, by separating sperm that bear the X chromosome (female) and those that have the Y chromosome (male), and inseminating with whichever sample is desired. The procedure can be employed for couples who want a child of a specific gender. This process is otherwise known as family balancing. You may inquire further by sending us a message to
  3. Your visit to us should not be longer than two days and yes, you can begin to monitor your ovulation at your home and only be here on the day of your ovulation. You may use traditional ovulation prediction kits available in the pharmacy stores today but If you see the need, you may have your doctor at your location predict your ovulation and instruct you when you need to be here for the procedure. Our patients come to us from all over the World.
  4. Our success rate is approximately 85% for the male selection and 75% for the female selection but this is not a guaranteed procedure. Gender selection does not damage or alter the sperm in any way, therefore, it will not affect the chances for any abnormalities to the fetus or the establishment of the pregnancy.

*Please note that it is your responsibility to predict your ovulation date. You may do so by using one of our available ovulation predictor kits or seek the opinion of your physician.

Note: All clinical services will be performed by The Andrology Instuitute of America and conform with the regulations and guidelines established by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our success rate is approximately 80% for the male selection and 72% for the female selection. This is not a guaranteed procedure, but it will definitely increase your chances for a specific sex of a child. Gender selection does not damage or alter the sperm in any way, therefore, it will not affect the chances for any abnormalities to the fetus or the establishment of a pregnancy.

Home Gender Selection kits availible from ZDL, Inc.

It is strongly recommended that before you order the Gender Selection Kit, that the male's semen sample is evaluated to confirm that it has an adequate number of sperm to undergo the gender selection procedure and that the processed sperm would survive the shipment back to you, and be viable for a successful insemination.

This Trial Gender Selection Kit is designed specifically for this purpose to confirm that you have adequate numbers of sperm to undergo the gender selection procedure and to safeguard you, the end-user, in providing peace of mind that the procedure will be successful for you. To even provide you with more information, if you have not had a recent semen evaluation, we recommend the Trial Gender Selection Kit with Semen Analysis (see table below).

We realize the importance of your decision and we therefore wish to offer you a variety of packages that can assist you to obtain the best results and most peace of mind.


The Home Gender Selection Kit (The BioTranz™) is a unique service which allows you to inseminate with a sample that has 70-80% sperm of the gender of your choice. This procedure is dependent upon the initial quality of the sample. It is highly recommended that the sample be evaluated prior to the procedure using the Trial Gender Selection Kit in order to identify any possible deficiencies that you may have in your semen. We do check for a variety of semen parameters that are established by the WHO as predictive of one's ability to fertilize and achieve a pregnancy. If the sample is deemed not suitable for Gender Selection as evidenced by the Trial Gender Selection Kit, then we would not recommend this procedure for you.

The processed sample that we will ship back to you for insemination purposes will have 70-80% of sperm of the gender of your choice. This will only increase your chances of having a child with the gender of your choice. We cannot guarantee the outcome of the Gender Selection procedure. The Andrology Institute of America will not be held responsible if, for any reason, insemination using the Gender Selection Kits results in the conception of a child other than the gender of your choice. It is important to realize that semen parameters could vary from sample to sample, and therefore the Trial Gender Selection Kit may in some cases not be predictive of the actual Gender Selection Procedure done at another time.

Also, any form of artificial insemination is a physician prescribed procedure and it should be performed by or under the guidance of a qualified physician.

Due to the time sensitive nature of the Home Gender Selection Kit, these clinical kits (including the BioTranz™) cannot be returned for a refund. All sales are final.
