Spermosens chip device
Spermosens’ technology is a lab on chip device that employs sperm-specific receptor proteins coupled to a gold electrode through gold nanoparticles. When the patient’s sperms are added to the device, the proteins capture the sperms and induce biochemical reactions.
The binding and biochemical response are then analyzed through a electrical circuit which the chip is connected to. The resulting electrochemical signals are footprints of the sperm health and may help determine the underlying cause of infertility, and the ideal Artifical Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment for the couple.
