  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe IVOS version 12 Motility Analyzer operates as a cell motion analyzer and a computer. Integrated hardware components include an internal phase-contrast optics system with stroboscopic illumination, an internal automated heated specimen stage, an image digitizer and a computer. Semen samples following dilution at 25 million sperm per ml in normal saline is loaded onto a Makler counting chamber and placed on the stage of the phase contrast microscope and inserted in to the machine. Then with the help of computer-operated digital camera several frames of video images are captured, analyzed by the inbuilt software and average values of different motility parameters are displayed on the result screen.

  User Instructions
