SEMEN QUALITY

Director: Prof. Gaia Cecilia Luvoni


 

The analysis of physical, chemical and biological parameters of the ejaculate (SPERMIOGRAM) estimates semen quality.

After semen collection, appearance and volume of the three fractions of the ejaculate, sperm concentration, motility, viability, and morphology are evaluated.

For a more specific examination of the spermatozoa, a FUNCTIONAL SEMEN ANALYSIS which includes evaluation of membrane integrity, DNA status and ability to interact with female gametes, is available.
