What is SMACRO?
SMACRO is an at home sperm test that enables secure analysis of sperm; including Concentration/Count, Morphology, and Motility. In the privacy of your own home, with the aide of our professional online support, male fertility is a less daunting question. SMACRO combines the precision of professional optical microscopy with the ease of a smart device, to simplify the acquisition and analysis of your sperm. You will receive a 10 chambered slide for sperm observation, allowing for 10 individual tests and analyses to track your sperm health during fertility treatment.
Optional extended programs are available on our website.
Can I benefit from SMACRO?
Having a low sperm count decreases the odds that one of your sperm will fertilize your partner’s egg, resulting in unsuccessful pregnancy. Your sperm count is considered lower than normal if you have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. SMACRO is Easy-to-use, cost effective and accurate screen for common male fertility issues: Azoospermia (zero sperm count) Oligozoospermia (semen with a low concentration of sperm) Asthenospermia (reduced sperm motility) Teratospermia (increase in sperm with abnormal morphology)
Many men struggle to start families due to resolvable fertility issues. SMACRO seeks to eliminate barriers that men commonly face in diagnosing their fertility needs. SMACRO allows you to determine, at home, your sperm count, morphology and motility prior to contacting a local doctor. Men that have been diagnosed can use this tool as a cost effective method to track progress throughout therapeutic or nutritional treatments.
Easy-to-use in 4 simple steps
STEP 1: Collect Sample
Prepare the semen sample with the included tools
STEP 2: Load on Slide
Apply drop of semen on the included slide
STEP 3: Video Record
Observe and record short video using your smart phone
STEP 4: Upload file
Send the video to us and get analysis report
Step 1: Sample Collection
You must abstain from ejaculation for a minimum of 3 days, but not more than 5 days before doing the semen test. Sample collection and preparation are very simple, just follow our short instruction provided to you within the kit.
The sample collection step will provide two important parameters: Semen volume and sample liquefaction (turn from gel-like to watery sample). To test sample volume, use the 15ml tube to measure the volume. To test liquefaction, keep the sample at room temperature for about 20 min, normal semen will liquefy in 20 minutes.
Step 2: Sample Preparation
For better results, the semen need to be prepared following our instruction by diluting the semen with the solution provided with the kit. To have accurate results we use a specially engineered microscopic slides that conforms to CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) and (CLSI) Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute Guidelines.
Step 3: Observe and Record
Counting any type of cells under microscope is not easy for untrained person, need skills and long-term training to distinguish between different components. With SMACRO you don’t need to bother with any analysis or calculations. You can observe your own sperm using your smart phone, take a short video, send to us and we will do everything else.
Step 4: Data Analysis
Unlike other home sperm analysis tests on the market, you don’t need to do the sperm analysis. Set back and wait to hear from us, we will provide you a professional semen analysis report includes all the parameters like concentration, motility and morphology.
You have slide with 10 chambers, that’s mean you do it 10 times and send it to us 10 times. More slides are available on our website.
