Sperm Concentration Rapid Test Cassette CE certified
The Sperm Concentration Rapid Test is biochemical assay for in vitro qualitative estimation of sperm concentration in human semen as an auxiliary aid in clinical diagnosis of the infertility and/ or pregnancy planning by self-evaluation of sperm concentration above or below the required concentration for successful pregnancy.
This product uses the inert glass fiber membrane with high water absorption and the pore size of less than 0.5μm to filter the semen. Sperm cells are trapped on the surface of the first layer of the membrane, and staining solution is used that can dye sperm cells.
The darker the colour of Well A, the higher the sperm concentration. If the colour of test well A is lighter than the standard colour of reference Well B, it means that the concentration of sperm is less than 15 million/ml. If the colour of test well A is darker than the standard colour of reference Well B, it means that the sperm concentration is greater than 15 million/ml. Sperm concentration of 15 million/ml is the minimum expected sperm concentration level for pregnancy.
This kit is designed to be used for in vitro qualitative estimation of the sperm concentration of human semen. Essentially this means the test will determine if the number of sperms is at an adequate level for conception to occur with sexual intercourse, subject to female partner’s ovulation in time. A low sperm concentration would indicate less likelihood of conception It would be advisable to see your medical professional who can advise what can be done to improve the sperm concentration.
How to use?
Before testing, read the instructions completely carefully and completely.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Compare the colour of test well A to reference Well B)
The colour of test well A is darker than the standard colour of reference Well B. It means that the sperm concentration is greater than 15 million/ml. The likelihood of conception is high with this sperm concentration, subject to other conditions, such as ovulation being favorable.
The colour of test well A is lighter than the standard colour of reference Well B. It means that the sperm concentration is less than 15million/ml. This is known as oligospermia (a range that is normally between 5million/ml and 15million/ml). The likelihood of conception is less with this sperm concentration and further medical consultation is recommended.
NOTE: If well A is colourless, it means the sperm concentration is less than 5 million/ml or zero. This condition is known as azoospermia. If you are unsure of the result or you feel the result is abnormal you should repeat the test using the second test that is included in the pack but make sure you do not ejaculate through any sexual activity for 6 days before carrying out the second test. If the second test is also abnormal, you should discuss the results with your doctor or medical professional.
