Sperm morphology is an important predictor of fertility potential, but its variation makes consistent and uniform classification difficult. Don't just hope for the best! Our Sperm Morphology Quality Controls are specifically designed to identify and document morphology classification using a known standard, allowing laboratories to maintain accuracy over time and across multiple technologists.
Our stained smears use our Modified Papanicolaou Stain to achieve crisp detail and structural delineation, and models ideal staining practice. Highly readable normal and abnormal smears with Levey-Jennings charts graphically depict classification trends over time, ensuring consistent results and reducing classification 'shift & drift'. The Sperm Morphology Quality Control works with both Traditional and Strict classification systems, and additional available differential charts include mean and 3SD range for sperm abnormalities.
For labs that want the ability for multiple technologists to review specific sperm morphology, we offer our groundbreaking VirtuMorph® Quality Control. Using high resolution printed images of fifty Pap-stained sperm, the VirtuMorph® is a composite image printed on high quality paper. This product allows analysts to study specific classifications objectively and collectively. Each comes with a cell by cell answer key which indicates the reason for the overall classification.
An AQC305 includes one glass Sperm Morphology QC smear (either stained or unstained) and its Levey-Jennings chart, and a 50 cell photoprint VirtuMorph® with answer key and blank worksheet master.
This product is suitable for sperm morphology beginners, as well as experienced technologists who work in labs where multiple technologists analyze morphology. In addition to standard quality control, it can serve as a calibration tool for troubleshooting poor analyst agreement, or unacceptable QC or PT results. Our digital imaging has revolutionized sperm morphology quality control, proficiency testing and training, and also forms the basis of our SpermConfirm® Morphology Classification Method and Sperm Morphology Atlas.
