Analysis of sperm membrane charge using microelectrophoresis demonstrates that semen samples with a higher proportion of negatively charged sperm are associated with improved ART outcomes.

Human semen air-dried before DNA fragmentation analysis provides statistically significantly closer results to fresh semen compared with snap-frozen semen and can be stored for up to 1 month.

This systematic review and meta-analysis showed that high sperm DNA fragmentation was related to lower pregnancy rates in IVF but not in ICSI cycles, whereas it was associated to higher miscarriage rates in both IVF and ICSI cycles.

Data from this study suggest that seminal hyperviscosity (a posttesticular factor) is not an important cause of sperm DNA damage and is not associated with semenoglin degradation.

Sperm chromatin dispersion (SCD) and TUNEL are poorly correlated for estimating DNA damage in men with unexplained infertility. SCD discriminates normal and abnormal sperm DNA damage with up to 69% accuracy when compared with TUNEL.

Polyvinylpyrrolidone-based medium can induce sperm DNA fragmentation during intracytoplasmic sperm injection, and frozen-thawed sperm from oligozoospermic ejaculates are more susceptible to in situ DNA fragmentation.
