Abstract:
Reflections on “Supersensitive fluorescent semen analysis: validation on azoospermic and oligozoospermic samples”

    Nice comment Dr Centola,
    you pointed and addressed one of the main concerns in the andrology lab: the limitations linked to visual confirmation of the absence of sperm in anejaculate, leading then to the option of performing testicular biopsy. The reclassification of 22% of semen samples into oligo instead of having azoospermia in Beyer’s study is a significant finding, avoiding many patients unnecesary surgical procedures.
    It overcomes human limits in sperm analysis with extreme samples!
    this is a path deserving further exploration
