Semen analysis microscopic examination

A semen analysis examines, on the one hand, macroscopic variables like color, volume, and viscosity, and on the other hand, microscopic variables related to sperm cells. To this end, the specialist used a Makler chamber to visualize the sperms under the microscope and examine parameters such as sperm count, motility, and morphology, among others.

For a semen analysis to be considered normal, sperm count must be above 15 million sperm per milliliter, a percent of sperm with progressive motility of 32% or over, and at least 4% of sperm must have a normal morphology.
