Our FertilCount Male Fertility test is a rapid diagnostic test of sperm concentration in semen and is available in both a single test kit and a two test kit pack.
Our FertilCount Male Fertility test kit will allow a man to test his fertility potential, privately and discreetly in his own home.
Who should use FertilCount?
A sensible decision for any man planning a pregnancy with their partner, is to test their sperm count.
Sperm count is widely recognised as the major indicator of the fertility in men. The threshold definition (cut off point) of male infertility has now been set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) at a sperm concentration of 15 million sperm per mL of sperm.
This means that Male Fertility Tests with cut off values above 15 ml/ml may no
longer be considered ‘State of the Art’ by the MHRA.
Our FertilCount Male Fertility test kits are a unique home test that will indicate if a man’s sperm concentration is greater or less than 15 million sperm per mL of sperm.
A positive result is likely to be good news although not proof of fertility. A negative result suggests that the man should consult with his doctor as he is close to being sub-fertile, which is not all bad news, because it does at least save a couple months of trying for a baby when there maybe issues to resolve.
Testing for low sperm count in men, how does it work?
FertilCount™ Male Fertility test cassette works by staining the sperm cells (DNA) in a semen sample to produce a blue colour. The more sperm cells that are stained in the sample then the darker the ‘test well’ becomes. Clinical trials have rated our babystart® FertilCount™ Male Fertility test to have a 97% ACCURACY of identifying whether a sample is above or below the cut off point of the device, 15 million per mL of sperm
