A better path to pregnancy with Path SpermQT™

All too often, patients go through months – if not years – of timed intercourse and failed rounds of IUI when trying to conceive, only to eventually move onto IVF.

The goal of SpermQT is to get you pregnant faster by helping to identify the path to pregnancy that is most likely to succeed.

SpermQT: A Different Kind of Sperm Test

The standard semen analysis looks at sperm swimming under a microscope. But sperm are complex and require more than a surface-level view. SpermQT looks inside the sperm, examining the internal function, more specifically the gene function of sperm.

  • SpermQT provides sperm quality results as Excellent, Normal, or Poor 
  • 4 out of 5 men who had a “Poor” SpermQT result received a normal result on their standard semen analysis
  • Without SpermQT, patients may not know why they are facing fertility issues when trying to conceive, also referred to as “Unexplained Infertility”

For Patients with a “Poor” SpermQT result

Timed intercourse and IUI (intrauterine insemination) are statistically not the best options for those with a Poor SpermQT result. Studies show that IVF with ICSI* is most likely to lead to a successful pregnancy. In fact, there is no statistical difference in pregnancy rates when doing ICSI between Poor and Excellent SpermQT results. 

For Those Who Are Trying to Conceive

SpermQT is for any couple who wants to know more about the male partner’s sperm health.

SpermQT is Changing the Conversation

“A lot of infertility goes undiagnosed because men go undiagnosed. And when men go undiagnosed, women go through procedures that will not work.” -Dr. Kristin Brogaard, Chief Scientific Officer, Path Fertility

Parenthood will be full of surprises. Conception does not have to be.

The first step would be for the patient to check with their plan; if the plan approves the expense, the patient can pay for a kit with their personal credit card and then submit a receipt to their plan for reimbursement.

Is Path SpermQT FDA approved?

This test is a Lab Developed Test under CAP/CLIA guidelines.

Are there any published papers about this technology and its performance?

We have written a white paper that is available for download and will have a peer-reviewed paper available soon!
