It is a video-based smartphone platform to measure Motile Sperm Concentration which is a critical factor in determining male fertility.
Medical Electronic Systems (MES), a Los Angeles based technology company specialising in rapid Automated Semen Analysis, launched YO Home Sperm Test in India, a video-based smartphone platform that is FDA-cleared to measure Motile Sperm Concentration which is a critical factor in determining male fertility. Reportedly, with 97 per cent accuracy, YO provides consumers the ability to both view and measure the number of motil sperm in their sample on their phone and from the comfort of their home and make male fertility testing an easy process.
In order to address the problem of delayed male testing and to eliminate the stressful public nature of male sperm analysis, the YO Home Sperm Test kit was developed by Medical Electronic Systems. “YO is both an accurate and private home test that provides a precise assessment of moving sperm concentration (MSC). Testing moving sperm is critical in a home test because, with a clear video to back it up, the results allow the man to approach the doctor with clear evidence of a problem. I see YO as a game changer in India and globally because of the profound need for a test of this type as a first step in the process of diagnosing male factor infertility in a timely basis,” said Dr Vasan,Chairman, Manipal Fertility; President-Elect of the South Asian Society for Sexual Medicine (SASSM); Secretary General of the Asian Society for Female Urology.
A company release stated that the FDA and CE cleared YO Home Sperm Test kit is sold online through the YO website www.yospermtest.com or through AMAZON. It is delivered in a plain box for confidentiality. The simple, step-by-step app is downloaded free of charge from Google Play or the App Store. The YO Clip (a mini – microscope) is supplied in the kit with all the supplies required to run two tests on your Smartphone. There is also humor built into the Sperm Trivia Challenge, which is designed to interact with the user during the sample preparation wait time. YO Home Sperm Test results are reported within minutes along with a video of the sperm.
