Answers (1)

a). Egg from the receiver/donor (female) and sperms from the receiver/donor (male) are collected and induced to form a zygote, in simulated conditions in the laboratory, the zygote/ early embryos(up to 8 blastomeres) then transferred into the fallopian tube(ZIFT), and embryos with more than 8 blastomeres, into the uterus(IUT) to complete its further development.

b). No, GIFT cannot be considered as an IVF technique because fertilisation takes place in the female body in vivo process.
