A Semen Analysis is the single most important piece of information needed to assess male fertility, and therefore it is crucial to obtain an accurate analysis.
At Repromed we are committed to providing the highest quality standards when providing a Semen Analysis to doctors and patients.
We perform our analysis according to the World Health Organisation’s latest criteria (5th edition). This is considered the gold standard in performing a Semen Analysis. Our samples are also analysed within an hour – this is crucial to obtain accurate results of the sample. Repromed also uses a state-of-the-art computer assisted system when analysing semen – the first in the state to adopt such technology.
We offer patients private, on-site rooms to produce their sample, alternatively patients may pre-arrange to produce their sample at home and deliver it to Repromed. If patients are unable to attend our Dulwich clinic on a weekday we have Wednesday evenings and Saturday appointments available.
To ensure that the semen sample is not harmed by any toxic material, our containers are scientifically tested in-house. We also provide patients with a non-toxic lubricant and/or condom (free of charge) if they have difficulty producing their sample.
Results are available within 2 working days however if you are a patient of Repromed, the results are available as soon as they are completed (no time wastage with postage). Results for urgent South Australian requests can be made available within 2 working days for external patients / doctors.
Repromed’s Andrology lab at our Dulwich clinic is equipped to do further specialised testing such as sperm DNA damage assessment if requested. This can be done using the same sample produced for the standard semen analysis. Similarly, we are also equipped to store your semen sample should you need it for future use, prior to Oncology treatment or a vasectomy.
All of Repromed’s Andrology labs are accredited annually by the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) and the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).
