For a proper test procedure, complete liquefaction of the semen sample must occur. This refers to the changing of the semen sample from a thick gel to more of a liquid. In a healthy human male liquefaction should happen within 60 minutes at room temperature. As some men suffer from human semen hyperviscosity (HSH) with a drastically elongated liquefaction time, this can impair the test performance.
The test uses a test cassette with an antigen-antibody (immunoassay) mode of action. The test results can be read through the appearance of a line in the test field.
The package contains all the necessary items needed for the test: a test cassette in a sealed pouch, a solution bottle, a semen transfer syringe, a semen collection cup, a detailed instruction for use.
The self-tests are manufactured by NanoRepro AG, an ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and EC certified German company.
