Sperm washing procedure and confirmation of absence of viral

In order to perform a seminal lavage of a patient with HIV, a double washing process is carried out, i.e. a density gradient followed by a swim-up. In this way, only motile spermatozoa are obtained that can be used for assisted reproductive treatment (ART).

However, before using the sample obtained after seminal lavage for reproductive treatment, it is necessary to confirm (usually by PCR) the absence of virus in the sample.
