The babystat® FertilCheck™ Female Fertility home diagnostic screening test is a rapid test of FSH concentration in urine. The kit contains two ECOstrip™ Female Fertility tests and if both test results are positive it is an indicator of reduced fertility. The babystart®FertilCount™ Male Fertility test is a rapid diagnostic test of sperm concentration in semen. Sperm count is widely recognised as the major indicator of the fertility in men. The threshold definition (cut off point) of male infertility has now been set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) at a sperm concentration of 15 million sperm per mL of sperm.

Features

The babystart®FertilCheck™ Female Fertility screening test for women plus the babystart®FertilCount™ Male Fertility test which is a rapid diagnostic test of sperm concentration in semen. Sperm count is widely recognised as the major indicator of fertility in men. The threshold definition (cut off point) of male infertility has now been set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) at a sperm concentration of 15 million sperm per mL of sperm. Male fertility tests with cut off values above 15ml/ml may no longer be considered "State of the Art' by the MHRA. The babystart® FertilCount male fertility test kits are a unique home test that will indicate if a man's sperm concentration is greater or less than the device cut off point, 15 million sperm per ml of sperm. A positive result is going to be good news although it is not proof of fertility. A negative result suggests that the man should consult with his doctor as he is close to being sub fertile, which is not all bad news, because it does at least save a couple of months of trying for a baby when there maybe issues to resolve.

Product Uses

The babystat® FertilCheck™ Female Fertility home diagnostic screening test is a rapid test of FSH concentration in urine. The kit contains two ECOstrip™ Female Fertility tests and if both test results are positive it is an indicator of reduced fertility. The test is greater than 99% accurate. The babystart®FertilCount™ Male Fertility test cassette simply works works by staining the sperm cells (DNA) in a semen sample to produce a blue colour. The more sperm cells that are stained in the sample the darker the 'test well' becomes. Clinical trials have rated our babystart® FertilCount™ test to have 97% ACCURACY of identifying whether a sample is above or below the cut off point of the device, 15 million per mL of sperm. 1. First collect a semen sample in the plastic cup provided.2.Once the semen sample is in the plastic cup, place the lid on the cup and gently swirl the contents of the cup for at least 10 times around the cup. Wait at least 15 minutes but not longer than 12 hours before testing the sample. Just before testing, swirl the cup contents around several times more. 3. Open the re-sealable pouch by tearing or cutting at the notches. Remove the contents and place a test cassette on a flat surface with the sample wells facing upwards.4. Swirl the plastic cup before removing the lid. Hold and squeeze the plasic dropper at its mid point. 5.Place the angled tip into the semen sample and release the pressure slowly. As you do the semen will be drawn into the dropper 6. By gently squeezing the dropper add ONE drop of semen to the Test Well, let the drop soak for at least one minute 7. Add TWO drops of BLUE solution to the same Test Well B. Let the drops soak in for at least one minute. 8. Add TWO drops of CLEAR solution to the TEST Well B. Let the drops soak in for at least one minute. Read the test results within 5 minutes of this step. Reading the results. Compare the colour intensity of TEST Well B with the colour of Well A (Reference Well) POSITIVE TEST: will be indicated if the colour seen in TEST Well A is the same or greater than the Reference Well A. This means the sperm count is equal to or greater than 15million per mL. NEGATIVE TEST: will be indicated if the colour in the TEST Well B is less than the colour in the Reference Well A. This means the sperm count is less that 15million per mL. If you are unsure of the results of the test, take a second test. The second test should not be repeated until at least 3 days later but not more than 7 days after the first test. If both test were positive then your sperm count is equal or greater than 15million per mL. However, if either or both tests were negative then we recommend you consult your doctor with a view to having a full semen analysis performed. Sperm counts are falling in the western world and no-one knows why. A sensible precaution for men is to get tested when they are planning a pregnancy.
