SpermFunc ® DNAf - Sperm DNA Fragmentation test kit (Sperm Chromatin Dispersion, SCD method)
Reproductive tract inflammation, testicle overheating, drugs, smoking, environmental toxins, varicocele, and hormonal factors, may cause DNA damage in sperm. The determination of DNA intactness in sperm can help to better evaluate the ability of fertility in male and predict the outcome of pregnancy in female. Researches show that there have been the correlation between the abnormities of sperm DNA and the
abortion; there have been the significant negative correlation between the quality of embryonic development prior to the implantation in IVF/ICSI and the damage of DNA in sperm; For a couple planning for intrauterine insemination (IUI), if the male partner has a high level of DNA damage in sperm, they shall consider IVF or ICSI, etc.
