What is SP10 Acrosomal Protein?

  • This male fertility kit tests a fresh semen sample by quantitatively detection Acrosomal protein SP-10 found on the surface membranes of human sperm.
  • It is the first rapid chromatographic immunoassay to utilise this protein as an accurate indicator of viable sperm concentrations.

What is the significance of sperm concentration to fertility

  • Sperm concentrations are one of the primary factors used by doctors to diagnose male infertility.
  • Abnormally low production of viable sperm cells accounts for close to 40% of total infertility which in turn affects 15% of couples at any one time while trying to conceive.
  • SP-10 is a protein specific to male germ cells and cannot be found in other cells, making it a very specific marker for measuring sperm.
  • The test immunoassay is set to give a positive result when sperm concentrations exceed 15 million sperm per ml of ejaculate.

Why 15 million per ml?

  • 15 million / ml sperm concentration is the level currently agreed by the World Health Organisation as the minimum level or concentration of sperm required for normal fertility in a man.

How common is male infertility or sub-fertility

  • Sperm counts are dropping globally for a variety of factors.
  • Male fertility is a rising contributor to overall infertility, especially in Europe.
  • Most fertility clinics will not investigate sub-fertility or infertility concerns before couples have tried to conceive for at least 12 months.

How to use the SP10 fertility test for men

  • The semen sample should be collected between 3 and 7 days from the last ejaculation.
  • The sperm sample must be left for 60 minutes to liquefy before commencing the test.
  • The entire test procedure takes around one and a half hours to complete.
  • The SP10 male fertility test kit is intended to be used as a preliminary test and abnormal results should be discussed with your Doctor.
  • Note: the SP10 male fertility test kit cannot be used as a screen for infertility post vasectomy, as the 15M/ml cut off level is too high.
