Offer Advanced Sperm Quality Testing


Even if a semen analysis looks normal, problems in sperm DNA can affect sperm function and embryo development. The Episona Sperm Test can help.

A Better Test for Male Fertility


The semen analysis is a poor predictor of male fertility. With The Episona Sperm Test, you will understand your patient’s risk for infertility related to poor sperm function or poor embryo quality.

 
 

Help Patients Make Difficult Decisions


Episona test results help you manage patient expectations during fertility treatment and counsel them through tough decisions, such as moving on to IVF, or whether it may be time to seek a donor.

 

Epigenetic Sperm Testing


Episona’s sperm quality test is a type of epigenetic sperm testing. In evaluating over 1000 fertile and infertile men, we have found that epigenetic abnormalities in sperm DNA increases the risk of infertility.

 

How Epigenetic Abnormalities Affect Fertility

Epigenetic abnormalities in genes associated with sperm function may impact spermatogenesis, migration (motility and chemical sensation), and fertilization of the egg. Abnormalities in sperm function genes may decrease your chance of conceiving naturally or through artificial insemination.

Epigenetic abnormalities in genes associated with embryo development may impact the proper growth of the embryo or implantation. Epigenetic abnormalities in embryo development genes may result in poor embryo growth, implantation failure, or recurring pregnancy loss.
