Increasing the chances of having children

More and more couples worldwide are desperately longing in vain for a child of their own. Modern medicine has developed various possibilities and procedures to successfully initiate pregnancy. The so-called in vitro fertilisation, also known as IVF procedure, is one possibility of artificial insemination. In this procedure, the ovum is taken from the woman and then artificially fertilized with the man's sperm in the laboratory. If the fertilization is successful, the embryos can then be transferred to the uterus so that pregnancy can begin.

In order to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy, the separation of high-quality sperm is purposeful. The Australian company Memphasys has developed a product that can be used to process the seminal fluid to increase the birth rate. The product called FELIX is currently being tested by experts and sales are expected to start in the second half of 2020. Memphasys currently has a market value of around EUR 25 million. The Memphasys shares enable investors to support couples' desire to have children and benefit from the success of the product.
