Physicians’ Lab Update / Newsletter

In compliance with the World Health Organization’s 5th Edition procedure for Semen Analysis, LifeLabs will be changing the terminology used when reporting the number of sperms present. Sperm Count will be replaced with Sperm Concentration. The result line on the report will read SPERM CONC. The unit of measure will remain the same. Sperm concentration will be reported in giga per litre. This change will be effective in the latter part of August.
