Sperm Analisis

Our analysis is based in the criteria of normality established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the strict morphology criteria by Kruger, including:

Routine Analysis: The acknowledgement of these basic parameters helps us to comprehend the fertile potential of the male, as well as the Assisted Reproduction technique that offers the best possibilities. For that, it is determined:

Sperm concentration: The number of spermatozoids ejaculated by volume unit; Motility: Established percentage of acceptable mobile sperms.

The concentration as well as the motility of the sperms in a sample is evaluated with the help of a Contrast Microscope in phases of 20x of augmentation, in a special camera that does not affect the sperm behavior.

Morphology: After making a plaque with the sperm, colored with an adequate histological tintion, the sample is analyzed in 100x of augmentation in search of morphological defects in the sperms head, intermediate piece and the tail.

Viability: We analyze the percentage of viable sperms in the ejaculation.

Additional Tests :

In this test, it depends the future therapeutic decisions regarding the characteristics presented in the sperm, and here is where the importance of trying to obtain the best possible outcome is.

Immunological Studies: It detects the presence of anti sperm antibodies in the semen and serum of the wife, with it has been demonstrated to have a direct relation with infertility.

Biochemical Studies: Accessory Glandular Markers in the male genital system, which it´s good function is fundamental for the correct maturity of the spermatozoids.

Diagnostic Capacitation: This technique is obtained by selecting a great number of mobile sperm possible, with good morphology, as well as the washing of the seminal plasma (harmful for the spermatozoids), as if it would be in artificial insemination, but without introducing the sample inside the uterine cavity.

DNA Fragmentation: In some concrete cases, masculine sterility can be associated to a rise in the spermatozoids percentage with fragmented DNA. In this cases, before we suggest to change the sperm donor, it is interesting to know the level of fragmentation of the DNA of the spermatozoids.
