Analyses performed in the laboratory

Semen analysis

This is a medical biological examination of the various parameters that make up semen (ejaculate volume, semen color and viscosity, sperm count, vitality and mobility, etc.).

Cytological assessment of sperm

This is a medical examination corresponding to the cytological and morphological analysis of spermatozoa.

Migration and survival test

This test consists of observing the behavior of spermatozoa in order to select the most resistant and fertile for a medically assisted reproduction (MAP) procedure. The survival migration test is used to determine the most suitable MAP technique for the couple seeking to have a child.

Sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination

Intrauterine artificial insemination (IAC) with partner sperm involves injecting “prepared” sperm into the uterine cavity on the day of ovulation. Ovarian stimulation helps to control and improve ovulation.
