Routine Semen Analysis
Analysis includes the determination of standard parameters such as the sperm concentration, motility and progressive motility. General sperm morphology is routinely assessed. In addition, semen volume, degree of sperm aggulutination, leucocyte (WBC) and liquification time will also be noted.
