Sperm Meter proves to be most advantageous as your partner in precise Semen Analysis. Sperm Concentration, Quantitative & Qualitative assessment of sperm motility, in terms of sperm concentration within the same focus of microscope, along with complete evaluation of seminal plasma.
To know the fertility potential of male, it is must to perform ‘Semen Analysis’. During evaluation of semen following points should be given importance :
SpermMeter requires no dilution of semen, so only a 'neat semen' is analysed resulting in more accuracy.
Semen may form a smear of varied thickness if not made properly, whereas - Dimensional Constancy is the major requirement for microscopic analysis. SpermMeter is designed to achieve uniform smear of 10 micron thickness. This also avoids overlapping of sperms.
This has following advantages :-
SpermMeter provides faster results as the calculations are easy.
It has a micrometric grid of 100 squares; each of 100 micron. The number of sperms in any 10 squares of the grid, simply implies their concentration in million per ml.
Dimensional Consistency & micrometric area are Accredited by certified authority.
Microscopic examination is based on constant depth of focus. In SpermMeter the surface graticule has been created on inner surface of the cover slip which facilitates the view of sperm and graticule in same focus of microscope without disturbing the dimensional constancy.
No. of Sperm in 10 square x depth x dilution
|No. of Sperm x 10 x 1||x 104/ml|
No. of Sperm x 106/ml
The prime factor in semen analysis's is assessment of sperm motility (quantitative and qualitative) with reference to sperm concentration within ht same focus of microscope.
During transition of objective optics to higher magnification it will PERTURB the sample by producing air currents, which will affect the visual field. Hence during assessment of Sperm motility undisturbed visual field is the prime requirement.
In the Upright Microscope model of Sperm Meter, graticule (micrometric grid) is given on the the cover glass on the lower side of the ring.
Product Code : SP/INT/001-A
In the Inverted Microscope model of Sperm Meter, graticuleis given on the optical window.
Product Code : SP/INT/001-B
Specially to be used with Computer Assisted Semen Analyzer (CASA) for Semen analysis. It has no graticules.
Product Code : SP/INT/001-A
It requires no attachments to mount on microscope.
It is reusable and the life of micrometric grid is very long so the cost per use comes out to be very low.
Q 1. Why Sperm Meter doesn't suit with 40X microscope?
Ans.: During microscopic examination, handling with 40x objective perturbs semen sample by creating more air currents since distance between object and 40x objective lens is only 0.560 mm (approx).
Hence semen sample needs to be assessed using 10x or 20x objectives only.
