We’ve already seen products that offer men the ability to do sperm counts in the privacy of home. Yet, sperm count is only one indicator of healthy fertility. Whether sperm are lively and energetic is another important parameter. Medical Electronic Systems, a well known name in laboratory equipment for sperm quality analysis, is about to release a smartphone-powered sperm analysis system that lets you see the swimmers and count only the ones that are agile.
The YO system consists of a microscope attachment that works with Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones, slides, pipettes, cups, and a liquefying powder. Two testing sets come in a box that will cost $49.
After the sample is obtained the old-fashioned way, it is prepared, placed onto a slide, and the slide inserted into the microscope attachment. Using a matching app that relies on the phone’s camera and light, the user can visualize the sperm and perform a count of only the moving sperm. The whole Testing process takes minutes and can be done discreetly.
Here’s a promo video for YO that shows how to perform the test:
