The andrology laboratory provides analysis of semen, including concentration in millions/ml, motility, volume, pH and liquefaction. Vitality testing and morphology estimation is not performed. The laboratory service provision is available by appointment only during normal morning working hours.
Quality assurance programmes are in operation to ensure satisfactory accuracy and precision of all tests. Validity of results is dependent on the correct collection and transport of the specimen.
