Male infertility is common.

Infertility affects men and women equally, but technology has not allowed men to be an equal partner in the fertility testing process – until now. Introducing SpermQT.

SpermQT (Sperm Quality Test) – a new kind of fertility test.

SpermQT is a non-invasive test that examines the sperm’s genes to analyze its internal quality and function.

Lifestyle and environmental factors can influence sperm quality, potentially affecting the sperm’s ability to do its job, which is to find the egg, bind to the egg, penetrate the egg and, finally, fertilize the egg.

The benefit of SpermQT.

  • The standard semen analysis looks at the sperm’s exterior and counts how many are swimming & how well they’re swimming.
  • SpermQT looks at the interior and examines the genes to see if the sperm is able do its job.
  • The two tests combined provide a better analysis of the overall sperm health than the standard test alone.

The fertility journey should be a shared journey.

“A lot of infertility goes undiagnosed because men go undiagnosed. And when men go undiagnosed, women go through procedures that will not work.”
