The unique design of SENSE™ provides ideal conditions for optimised oocyte retrieval performance and aspiration time as well as improved patient comfort. Prof William Ledger is Head of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of New South Wales and Director of Reproductive Medicine at The Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney. In this video, Prof Ledger shares his expertise, experience and why he has chosen to use SENSE™ follicle aspiration for all his patients.

Successful oocyte retrieval for the patient and for you
The oocyte is the largest cell in the human body and is extremely vulnerable. Retrieving an oocyte exposes it to considerable stress, including transfer from the follicle, passage through the needle and tubing, and exposure to the laboratory environment.
It is also a critical procedure involving a lot of anxiety for the patient.
One way to support a successful outcome is to use a needle that enables a fast and precise procedure. This will minimise stress and ensure that the maximum number of intact oocytes can be retrieved.
Using a needle that causes minimal tissue damage will also lessen complications and patient discomfort.
