MOUNTAINSIDE, N.J., Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Androvia LifeSciences, a biotechnology company engineering solutions for the advancement of male fertility, today announced that data related to the company's proprietary technology, the Cap-Score Sperm Function Test, will be presented in three poster sessions at the 72nd Annual American Society for Reproductive Medicine Scientific Congress & Expo (ASRM), to be held October 15 – 19, 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Because this new assay is able to help clinicians determine the specific fertility treatment that is most suitable for each couple, it is inherently able to reduce overall costs while increasing the pregnancy rate," said Joseph B. Babigumira, PhD, Departments of Pharmacy and Global Health, University of Washington, who led the study being presented at ASRM exploring the reduction in medical costs associated with use of the Cap-Score Sperm Function Test.

The studies related to Cap-Score that are being presented at the ASRM annual conference this year consist of:

Capacitation defects are common in men questioning their fertility and are independent of standard semen analysis parameters

  • Poster # P-354
  • Poster session:  Tuesday, October 18, 2016 from 7 a.m.8:45 a.m. MDT

About Cap-Score Sperm Function Test

A laboratory developed test designed to assess and measure the fertilizing ability of sperm, to help couples and reproductive health care professionals make informed decisions about the fertility solution that is best suited for that couple. The Cap-Score Sperm Function Test provides an analysis of the sperm on a molecular level, and is the only assay that evaluates capacitation, the process by which sperm acquire the ability to fertilize an egg. The test is being designed to complement the traditional semen analysis which determines sperm count, motility and appearance.
