What a woman can do (pregnancy test kit) a man can do better (sperm fertility test kit)
Men can now test their sperm motility and concentration at home without professional assistance, all they need is their smart phones!
This innovation was developed by Scientist at Harvard Medical School, Brigham, and women’s hospital. It gives up to 98% accuracy.
How the test works
A disposable plastic kit bottle is used to collect the Man’s sperm.
The sperm is poured from the bottle Kit into a chip containing lenses and an LED light to illuminate and magnify the sample.
This chip containing sperm is in turn inserted into a phone
Once inside the phone, an Android-based app records one-second-long videos and uses video frames to track sperm. It can deliver results in less than five seconds with over 98 percent accuracy.
The team now plans to conduct further tests and file for FDA approval of the technology which they believe would happen quickly given the simplicity of the device.
The technology does not require any training to use. for more details read here . Smartphone-based methods to measure the amount of sperm and its motility could, in the future, lower the cost and stigma associated with testing male fertility
