Sperm capacitation is one more step in assisted reproduction techniques and, therefore, it is included in the price of these, whether it is artificial insemination or IVF.
If sperm capacitation is performed as a diagnostic test, that is, if we are going to perform a REM semen analysis, we can calculate the price of this process.
- In Spain, the cost of a semen analysis is around 70-100 euros, while a MSC semen analysis is around 150 euros.
- In the United States, prices vary depending on the clinic chosen but the standard analysis can be found from $50, and for more advanced analysis inclusing MSC you can pay up to $500.
- Prices in the UK are around £150 for a full semen analysis and an extra £80 for the capacitation.
