(ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL) — A first-of-its-kind male fertility test that allows men to monitor their sperm quality at home could be available soon thanks to two scientists from Sandia National Laboratories.
Former Sandia researchers Greg Sommer and Ulrich Schaff have created a new, portable diagnostic kit that allows men to self-test for sperm quality with a few drops of semen. The device, based on technology they helped create at Sandia, provides results in five minutes.
“It allows men to test and track their fertility from the comfort and privacy of their own homes,” Sommer said. “It’s a portable, easy-to-use diagnostic system with the accuracy of a clinical lab test.”
