Path: A Fertility Test for Couples and Men - Path Fertility

Trying to conceive? Sperm quality matters.

Our advanced Sperm Quality Test (SpermQT) analyzes the molecular function of sperm and is 6x more predictive of fertility potential than standard semen analysis.

How it Works

What is SpermQT?

SpermQT analyzes the epigenetic patterns on sperm DNA at genes important for sperm production, sperm maturation, and embryo development.

Variation in the epigenetic patterns of DNA methylation at these important genes have been associated with specific fetility outcomes.

Men that present with the SpermQT DNA methylation biomarker are at High Risk for having poor sperm quality.
