Male Infertility Tests

Semen Assay Room - Victory ART Laboratory

Initial Male factor testing or Semen Analysis is performed according to the guidelines set by the World Health Organization (WHO) Criteria of 2010. A special collection room is provided, with an adjacent window to the Andrology laboratory. Specimens are processed one patient at time, avoiding mix-up.

Tests are run daily with a Standard-Turn-Around-Time of two hours after collection.

This test includes:

  • determination of sperm concentration (millions/ml)
  • percent motility
  • speed and forward progression of motile sperm
  • morphological analysis of normal vs. abnormal sperm (Krueger Strict)
  • white blood cells and non-tailed forms (immature sperm) are identified with differential staining
  • presence or absence of agglutination
  • seminal pH
  • viscosity

Sperm cryopreservation (freezing)

A procedure that preserves sperm cells for several reasons: cancer patients preparing to undergo radiation or chemotherapy, patients who are going to have a vasectomy but wish to have sperm stored, and as backup sample for the husband’s absence in time of an Insemination or Intracytoplasmic injection.
