FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization) analysis of Chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y for sperm aneuploidies which can lead to poor semen parameters, chromosomally abnormal embryos and recurrent miscarriages.
It allows chromosomal analysis of sperm cells to determine if there is any increasing risk of chromosome abnormalities in sperm in cases of oligozoospermia, low mobility (astenozoospermia), or low morphology (teratozoospermia).
Furthermore, chromosomal abnormalities in sperm cells can be associated with reduced fertility, recurrent miscarriages, or an increased risk of passing genetic disorders to offspring.
SPECIMEN TYPE: Semen
SAMPLE COLLECTION: Self collected
SAMPLE STORAGE & SHIPPING: Samples should be stored, until shipping, at low temperature (4◦- 8◦) in the refrigerator. Ship at ambient temperature.
RESULT TURNAROUND TIME: Depending on how busy the lab is, we estimate you will get your results in 30 business days from the day your sample reach us *.

* Please be advised that the turnaround time for specialized diagnostic tests is indicative and not guaranteed and may be extended due to a variety of factors, including but not limited to need for additional clinical evaluation of results, repeat of analysis in cases of unclear or ambiguous results and need for resampling in case of inadequate specimen quality. Therefore, the results will be available in the indicated timeframe as long as there are no additional overheads, as stated above, that may extend turnaround time.
