Reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been negatively correlated with sperm quality including reduction of sperm motility and spermatozoa DNA damage. 8-hydroxy-2-deoxy-guanosine, (8-OΗdG) is an oxidized derivative of the nucleotide guanine which is prone to oxidation and thus a good, high specificity marker of DNA damage due to oxidative stress.
SPECIMEN TYPE: Semen (fresh or in special fixative solution)
SAMPLE COLLECTION: Self collected
SAMPLE STORAGE & SHIPPING: Samples should be stored, until shipping, at low temperature (4◦- 8◦) in the refrigerator. Next day delivery (24-36 hours) is required. Ship at room temperature using the fertlity kit box. Delivery of samples to Locus Medicus should be planned between Monday and Friday but not during the Weekend. Sample collection and pick-up by courier should take place on the same day.
RESULT TURNAROUND TIME: Between 3 and 5 working days
