   Experts at Sheffield University have developed a new method to identify best sperm in a sample without killing them
   Process uses a 10ft high magnetic resonance machine to examine living cells
   Doctors have previously had to examine sperm for health then throw it away
   This could help improve chance of success for IVF by using the healthy sperm
A machine which acts as a 'radar' for sperm could increase the chance of men with fertility problems becoming fathers.
Experts at the University of Sheffield have developed a new technique to identify the best sperm in a sample without killing them.
The process, which uses a 10ft high magnetic resonance spectroscopy machine to examine living sperm cells, will eventually allow doctors to select the most promising cells for use in IVF.

Until now doctors have only been able to examine a sample of sperm for its general health, throw it away, and then take another sample for use in fertility treatment.
That is because usually the very process of examining the sperm kills it.
