Sperm DNA fragmentation

DNA Fragmentation Index

DNA integrity of sperm depends much of the embryonic development. DNA is related to:

  • Fertilization rate
  • Embryonic development
  • Diseases.

The sperm DNA fragmentation reflects changes in the genetic material of the sperm and can result in decreased reproductive capacity being fecundante, so, a key factor in semen quality.

Fragmentation Index sperm DNA (DFI) It is aimed at assessing the integrity of genetic material. This parameter allows improved diagnosis and prognosis of couples attending assisted reproduction consultation, as it provides important information about the potential use of semen samples to achieve successful pregnancies and deliveries.
