Observation of sperm-head vacuoles and sperm morphology under light microscope
The presence of sperm-head vacuoles has been suspected to be deleterious to the outcomes of assisted reproductive technology ART. It is difficult to accurately distinguish morphologically abnormal sperm with vacuoles under a light microscope. This study was performed to analyze the result of the observation of sperm-head vacuoles using Papanicolaou staining under a light microscope and whether the male partner's age affects these vacuoles. The criteria for the sperm-head vacuoles were those given in the World Health Organization manual. For the analysis of the age factor, the participants were divided into the following groups: years, years, years, years, and years. The percentage of sperm-head vacuoles increased with normal sperm morphology group A vs.
Medical student looks at his own SPERM under a microscope
Semen analysis is a very important step before any artificial insemination is carried out. Semen is a fluid containing sperm cells, which is released during ejaculation. A normal sperm count is above 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen.
A medical student looked at his own sperm under a microscope and filmed the fascinating close-ups on his iPhone. Martin Kristiansen shot the footage of his semen, magnified up to 1, times, to give an insight into the world of reproductive cells. His recording, made in the comfort of his home, shows thousands of the tiny cells darting back and forth full of life. The biomedicine student at Aalborg University in Denmark was shocked to see just how lively his semen was.
