IBgen SPERM: Male fertility genetic test
Genetic analysis of the sperm formation process
How can we help you?
Nowadays, between 10 and 15% of couples have fertility issues. Around 50% of all cases are caused by male factor issues. There are many different reasons for issues of this kind in men and, as a result, only 40% of cases are diagnosed during clinical practice.
IBBiotech has developed a male fertility test that means we can determine whether or not the origin of the problem is genetic. It is estimated that genetic factors are responsible for 30% of cases of male infertility.
What does the test IBgen SPERM entail?
The test consists of a panel of 426 genes that play an important role in spermatozoa formation (spermatogenesis). By studying the potential implication of these genes, we can diagnose infertility issues in men.
Who is the test suitable for?
We recommend it for patients who have spermatogenesis (Azoospermia, Severe oligozoospermia, Asthenozoospermia, Oligoteratozoospermia) and embryo failure implantation with an unknown cause.
Studying the 426 genes using next-generation sequencing techniques provides us with information about different types of male infertility. This is essential if we wish to understand the reasons for infertility in couples, give them guidance and determine which course of treatment is the most appropriate one for them.
