Citric Acid Test

Size

Supplier

FertiPro

Description

Test for the determination of citric acid in seminal plasma. Citric acid is secreted by the prostate and contributes to the acidic pH of prostatic fluid. Deficient secretion of citric acid occurs in case of infection of the prostate (prostatitis) which is usually accompanied by infection of the other accessory sex glands (epididymo-vesiculitis).The total output of citric acid per ejaculate was found to be the best marker of prostate function. It is recommended to measure citric acid concentration in all semen samples, particularly if history taking, clinical investigation, or an increased number of white blood cells in urine or semen suggest male accessory gland infection.

Description

Alpha-glucosidase determination kit. Alpha-glucosidase is shown to be the most sensitive marker of epididymal function. A very low activity of alpha-glucosidase (<13.5 U/L) is found in cases with azoospermia due to obstruction of the deferential ducts. Lower than normal values (<15 U/L) occur in patients with chronic inflammation of the epididymides (epididymitis) or in hypo-androgenism. Assessment of alpha-glucosidase in seminal plasma is recommended in order to evaluate epididymal function in cases with asthenozoospermia, or cases suspected of chronic epididymitis. In men with azoospermia and normal testosterone concentration in serum, a low alpha-glucosidase activity suggests obstruction.

Fructose Test (replaces FructoScreen)

Size

Supplier

FertiPro

Description

Kit for the determination fructose in seminal plasma. Fructose is secreted by the seminal vesicles, which contribute the major part of ejaculate volume. Deficient secretion of the seminal vesicles occurs in cases of hypo-androgenism or after infection of the seminal vesicles. In these cases the ejaculate volume is lower than normal and fructose concentration is decreased. In congenital agenesis of the seminal vesicles, which is commonly associated with congenital bilateral absence of the deferential ducts (CBAVD), the patient presents with azoospermia, low ejaculate volume, acidic semen pH, and there is no fructose in the seminal plasma.

Hypo-osmotic Swelling Test

Size

9x20ml

Supplier

Description

Sperm vitality test. The hypo-osmotic swelling test is a sperm vitality test based on the principle that live spermatozoa swell due to the absorption of a hypo-osmotic solution. The HOS test is based on the test procedure described in the WHO laboratory manual for the examination of human semen and sperm-cervical mucus interaction (1999).

LeucoScreen

Size

20 ml

Supplier

FertiPro

Description

Leucocyte staining method. Almost every semen sample contains cells other than spermatozoa. These may be polygonal cells from the genital tract, but mostly they are nucleated round cells. Round cells are either spermatogenetic precursor cells (spermatids, spermatocytes, sometimes spermatogonia) or white blood cells. Amongst the latter, lymphocytes are rather uncommon, and the majority are polymorphonuclear granulocytes, characterized by granules containing the enzyme peroxidase. LeucoScreen differentiates round cells on the basis of their peroxidase content.
