Change to Semen Analysis method in Andrology


In order to comply with NICE guidance the Andrology laboratory has changed the semen analysis method used from the automated CASA system to a manual method.
The new procedure is based upon internationally developed techniques as outlined in the current WHO manual for the examination of human semen Edition 5 (2010).

The reference ranges for the new method remain unchanged from the automated method and will continue to be sent out to requestors with patient reports.

For further information please contact the Andrology laboratory by emailing pathologyqueries@imperial.nhs.uk
