Complete Semen Analysis

services hope
Our Semen analysis results are precise and accurate as they are determined according to the guidelines established by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The analysis includes volume, appearance, viscosity, liquefaction, pH, Fructose, sperm concentration, motility percentage, morphology, grade of progression and type and number of non-sperm cells. Strict morphological assessment of the seminal fluid is routinely done for all patients after using special stains to determine the percentage and the exact type of anomalous sperms.


Semen processing for Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

services hope
The laboratory offers a complete line of Semen Washes and Semen Processing for intrauterine insemination. Our IUI results yield high success rates when compared to other centers, as we use the best media and disposables and deliver the processed sample on time.

We significantly use double gradient technique for all our patients which provide the best result. Our report includes both pre wash and post wash details.

Also we provide catheter and a set of glove along with the processed specimen.

Frozen Donor sperm for IUI

services hope

We provide preprocessed cryopreserved donor semen specimen which can be readily used for IUI. All the specimens have been quarantined for 6 months and are tested negative for HIV, HBsAg, VDRL Chlamydia and Thalassemia.

The specimen will have a volume of 0.5-0.6ml per/vial, minimum post thaw motility of 60% and a minimum of 15-20 million motile sperms/ml. The specimen will also contain donor’s blood group, height, colour of the skin, hair and eyes.

Cryopreservation of sperm

Semen cryopreservation is the process whereby sperm is frozen for future use. Cryopreservation of semen may be advantageous to couples in instances where

  • The male partner is unavailable at the time of IUI / IVF
  • The sperm are retrieved surgically or by electro ejaculation
  • The male partner is to undergo a radiation or chemotherapy
  • The male partner is planning to undergo vasectomy
  • Males having difficulty collecting a sample on demand for a procedure may also choose to freeze a sample in advance.






Sperm Functional Test

Hypo-osmotic Swelling Test

The HOS test yields information about functional integrity of sperm membrane. This assay can differentiate between immotile but viable spermatozoa from dead sperm. The HOS test may be used in selecting live sperm for ICSI, where there is little or no motile sperm.

Anti sperm antibody test

This is the only diagnostic test to indicate the presence of antisperm antibodies (ASAb) in human fluids and tissues. Sera of men and women may contain antisperm antibodies, which will result in reduced fertility. Sperm antibodies often cause agglutination, immobilization or binding to sperm surface. Our immunological assay includes the detection of Sperm Agglutinating Antibody, Sperm Immobilizing Antibody and Surface Bound Antisperm Antibody (Immunobead Binding Test).

Sperm survival test

Sperm after washing and removal of seminal plasma are cultured for extended period of time. The motility of spermatozoa is then checked after 24 hours. The specimen is considered normal is more than 70% of the sperms are alive and moving at 24 hours.
