Spermac Stain™

Sperm morphology stain

Assessment of sperm morphology is a standard procedure in semen analysis. The Spermac Stain™ method is simple yet perfectly adequate for the detailed investigation of morphology of all parts of the spermatozoa.
The stained smears are assessed under direct bright light and oil immersion (1000x).

Spermac Stain™ has been CE marked according to the specifications set forth in the European Medical Device Directive 98/79/EC.
