Applied technologies


  • TESA: surgical sperm retrieval from the testis or epididymis. One of the causes of male infertility is a low concentration of sperm in the ejaculate. In this case, it is recommended to perform Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA). This procedure is conducted under short-acting intravenous anaesthesia.
  • Spermogram: a laboratory method for testing the ejaculate aimed at assessing the man’s reproductive ability.
  • Sperm function test: is used to determine sperm maturity in the ejaculate and its ability to fertilize an egg.
  • Test for DNA fragmentation: is used to determine the amount of breaks in sperm DNA strands. Male fertilization ability depends on the amount of breaks.
  • OxiSperm test: helps determine the nature of sperm DNA fragmentation and strategize the treatment of male infertility.
