Semen Testing and Analysis

Frozen Semen Analysis

We do frozen semen evaluations on a large scale at our state-of-the-art laboratory. This includes determining the following: 

  • Objective semen evaluation 
  • Accurate sperm count (computer driven)
  • Sperm morphology and sperm morphomotry 
  • Bacterial count per semen sample 
  • Sperm life expectancy (computer driven) 

Morphology

The morphology of semen is a highly specialised field and Vriesit is one of the only companies in South Africa to offer this service. Basically, sperm morphology results are reported as the percentage of sperm that appear normal when semen is viewed under a microscope; highly helpful in determining fertility and reproduction potential. We never hesitate to ask a second opinion regarding any aspect of semen morphology, and should any questions arise we directly contact this world renowned authority on the subject, our mentor Professor Albert Barth of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine of Saskatchewan.
