Andrology (semen analysis)
The Andrology Laboratory provides diagnostic semen analysis as a component of fertility investigation prior to fertility treatment. This usually takes place within our Fertility Centre. The department is the largest andrology service in the West Midlands.
Under the clinical lead of the Fertility Centre director, semen infertility analysis investigation is undertaken by biomedical scientists, with clerical support from medical laboratory assistants.
Quality of the service is maintained by internal quality control measures and by participation in the UK National External Quality Assessment Service (NEQAS) andrology scheme.
Please note that there are no facilities for childcare at this clinic. We respectfully request that you do not bring children to this appointment.
Referral for semen infertility analysis is via the Women’s hospital Patient Access Team (Booking Office) who will then issue appointments.
