About Advanced Semen Analysis
Standard semen analysis checks the semen sample for the number of sperm and their motility (ability to move). An advanced semen analysis test investigates the internal parts of the sperm. A high-end microscope is used to study the volume, concentration, vitality, motility and morphology (shape and size) of the sperm. In this technique, embryologists analyse the sperm for the possible causes of failure and offer relevant treatment.
Advanced Semen Analysis Process
Advanced Semen Analysis is performed under the supervision of well-versed embryologists. You will be required to submit a sample of his semen. The semen sample is washed and concentrated by experts in a technologically advanced lab. A variety of tests are done as a part of advanced semen analysis. Some of the tests performed after processing of semen are:
The sperm is checked for its pH level, total sperm count, colour, volume, concentration and mobility.
CASA is an innovative method that examines even the smallest parameters such as velocity, dimensions and amplitude of the sperm. These aspects are often missed during the manual screening but inspected under this advanced semen analysis.
This test is done to highlight any genetic abnormality present in the sperm.
This test is beneficial in identifying the fertility potential of the sperm. This test evaluates the functionality of sperm plasma.
Embryologists examine the semen sample for special proteins (antibodies) that fight the sperm. In some conditions, the immune system of a man mistakes the sperm as an intruder and causes damage.
Advanced Semen Analysis includes several other tests like Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), Zona-Free Hamster Oocyte Test and more. The type of test required by the patient is decided by the fertility expert.

Birla Fertility & IVF has truly been a life-changing experience for me from day one. When we met our doctor, we discussed all our worries and concerns with him. The doctor recommended a few tests, and one of them was advanced semen analysis. It was only because of the hospital’s teamwork that we could have a positive result.
