Semen Analysis in the comfort of your home!
It is now possible to have your semen analyzed without having to leave your home with the new Home Semen Analysis Kit. All you have to do is collect a semen sample and send it to us via an overnight carrier and we will mail you a detailed, comprehensive report on your semen quality and provide recommendations.
It's as easy as that! For any couple that is having problems in conceiving, it is important that both partners be tested. In about 40% of infertility couples, the cause lies with the male. A routine semen analysis can answer many questions and isolate problems early in the treatment and allow physicians to offer better treatment options to the couple.
The Home Semen Analysis Kit includes the following:
- One BioTranz™ Semen Shipper.
- Detailed instructions (This file may be downloaded as an Adobe Acrobat file).
- Two-way shipment of the BioTranz™ Semen Shipper to your destination and back to us.
- A Routine Semen Analysis (with optional Critical Morphology assessment)
- A detailed report regarding the sperm parameters measured, with recommendations will be made available to you or your physician regarding the overall results within a few days.

The Home Semen Analysis Kit (The BioTranz™) is a unique service which allows you to identify any possible deficiencies that you may have in your semen. Those deficiencies are defined according to the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. We do check for a variety of semen parameters that are established by the WHO as predictive of one's ability to fertilize and achieve a pregnancy.
If no deficiencies are noted during your first semen analysis, we would recommend that a second semen analysis is not necessary but can be done only as an option in order to confirm the results. If your semen analysis shows minor or slight deficiencies, we would recommend that a second semen analysis be done by us to confirm the results. However, if major or more severe abnormalities are noted, then we would recommend that you consult a urologist or an infertility expert near you, in order to properly identify those deficiencies and explore various treatment options available. It is important to realize that semen parameters could vary from sample to sample, and therefore a final diagnosis cannot and should not be made about your ability to fertilize and reproduce based on only one semen sample.
The information that we generate from the semen analysis can be taken to your physician for proper interpretation and medical advice as to your reproductive status. This information is not intended as a substitute for medical advice of your physician. You should regularly consult your physician in matters relating to your health and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention.
Due to the time sensitive nature of materials in the Home Semen Analysis Kit (The BioTranz™), these kits cannot be returned for a refund.
