As the preferred specimen type (semen) for males suspected of sperm antibodies, this test is indicated in the investigation of male infertility:

-As a follow-up test when sperm agglutination is noted in the ejaculate

-In men with a history of testicular trauma, biopsy, vasectomy reversal, genital tract infection, or obstructive lesions of the male ductal system


Because this test does not require motile sperm, this test is appropriate for off-site situations in which Mayo Supply Kit T356 is unavailable and the specimen is transported frozen to Mayo Medical Laboratories.
