Knowing, not waiting.
FertiQUICK is a rapid test for use at home to detect the concentration of sperm in human semen with 95,1% accuracy.
The self-test shows whether the sperm count is considered within normal limits (at least 20 million sperm/ml). Other fertility factors are not detected by the test. Test cassette method with an antigen-antibody principle (immunoassay) is used. The test results can be read through the appearance of a line in the test field. The package contains all the necessary items needed for the test: a test cassette in a sealed pouch, a solution bottle, a semen transfer syringe, a semen collection cup, a detailed instruction for use.
“Infertility is not just a woman‘s concern. A problem with the male is the sole cause, or a contributing cause, of infertility in about 40 percent of infertile couples. About one fourth of infertile couples have more than one cause or factor related to their inability to conceive. About 10 to 15% of couples have no identifiable cause for their infertility after medical investigation” (Men´s Health, University Health Care).
Advantages of self-test:
- Complete test kit with all the necessary accessories.
- Safe & easy test procedure at home with immediate results.
- Comfortable and intimate atmosphere to run the test.
- Gives an idea of a possible cause of infertility.
Who should get tested?
Couples (specifically males) facing infertility problems.
|Analyte||Sample||Run time||Sensitivity||Specificity||Trueness||Accuracy||Cut-off level|
|ACRV1 / SP – 10 (Protein in the sperm head)||Human semen||7 minutes||97.00 %||94.68 %||95.88 %||95.10 %||20 Mio/mL|
For a proper test procedure, complete liquefaction of the semen sample must occur. This refers to the changing of the semen sample from a thick gel to more of a liquid. In a healthy human male liquefaction should happen within 60 minutes at room temperature. As some men suffer from human semen hyperviscosity (HSH) with a drastically elongated liquefaction time, this can impair the test performance.
