How About a Sperm Quantity and Quality Test at Home?

Men feel embarrassed to go to a fertility clinic for checking their sperm count. Now, a new sperm test kit allows men to check their sperm count at home and eliminates the clinic visit.

UK-based company called JRBiomedical has developed the kit called as 'SwimCount' that can indicate the user's sperm count and determine if the user has good swimmer sperms.

"The key benefit of SwimCount compared to other tests is that it provides a measure of motile sperm (good swimmers) rather than just a sperm count which can overestimate a man's fertility and provide a false sense of reassurance that all is OK," said Dr. John Rees, managing director at JRBiomedical.

This is the world's first home sperm testing kit which will hit the market this year through pharmacies. The kit has a cup in which men have to take a sperm sample and stir it well before extracting 0.5ml of the sample using a syringe. The sample must be put on the SwimCount device and after thirty minutes, users can see the result.

"The product will initially be available direct from us in North Wales through our website - the technology is quite new and the website allows us to provide help and advice to help use the test and interpret the results with confidence," he added.
