MiOXSYS® is a rapid in vitro diagnostic semen test that accurately measures oxidative stress
MiOXSYS’s® sORP measure is based upon the principle of oxidation-reduction potential which measures the giving and taking of electrons.
Unlike other measures, sORP represents an integrated measure of all oxidants & reductants, making it a more clinically meaningful measure when diagnosing idiopathic cases associated with high levels of oxidative stress.
Infertility affects an estimated 15% of couples globally and, according to the World Health Organization1, is a disease defined as failure to achieve pregnancy after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. The male factor plays a role in up to 50% of couples with fertility problems. More importantly up to 50% of male infertility cases worldwide are diagnosed as idiopathic, creating a big challange for couples and physicians, trying to identify the potential cause and apply an effective treatment2.
