Volunteer Semen Analysis

At the moment our lab is testing out a new device for semen analysis and preparation. We are accepting volunteers who are willing to donate a semen sample to this project. If you would like to take part please select the appointment type 'Volunteer Semen Analysis' below when you are booking. You will receive a full semen analysis report within 2 to 5 days of your appointment. After we perform the semen analysis the remainder of your sample will be tested in the new device before being discarded.

Sperm DNA Fragmentation Testing

A Sperm DNA Fragmentation test measures the status of the Sperm DNA which is located in the sperm head. For some individuals, this DNA can have high levels of fragmentation which may affect the fertility status. It is possible to have increased Sperm DNA Fragmentation levels even with a normal Semen Analysis result.
