yo home sperm test brings male fertility testing to smartphones


yo home sperm test brings male fertility testing to smartphonesmedical electronic systems (MES), the gold standard in automated semen analysis and an established manufacturer of commercial-grade automated semen analyzers for the past 20 years, announces the launch of ‘yo home sperm test’, the first home male fertility test kit powered by a smartphone platform and supported by an interactive app experience complete with sperm education, animations and sperm trivia. yo provides consumers with the ability to both view and measure the number of moving sperm in their sample–the key to male fertility–from the comfort of their smartphone.

unlike other home fertility tests that are limited to measuring total sperm concentration, yo is the first and only video-based smartphone platform that is FDA-cleared to measure motile sperm concentration (the number of moving sperm)–a critical factor in determining male fertility. at a consumer-accessible price poin, two ‘yo fertility tests’ are supplied with each kit, saving both time and money by offering an affordable, reliable and accurate home test. yo was created by the same team of scientists and engineers who developed MES’s ‘gold standard’ laboratory sperm quality analyzers that are used in hospitals and laboratorys.

yo is the result of a design-centric approach that takes the consumer’s state-of-mind into consideration. simple, step-by-step interactive screens and instructional animations provide a smooth and secure testing experience without any mystery or confusion. there is also humor built into the sperm trivia challenge, which is designed to interact with the user during the sample preparation wait time. yo test results are reported within minutes along with a video of the sperm. this provides both instant test results requiring no interpretation and a ‘wow’ factor when the tester sees his sperm swimmers in action.
