Specimen transportation


Specimen Transportation

Semen samples should be brought directly to Andrology by the patient

Instructions can be found in the patient booklets for vasectomy semen analysis and infertility semen analysis. Ensure that the specimen container supplied by Andrology has the top screwed on tightly to prevent the specimen from leaking and place the container into the biohazard bag provided. During transportation the sample should be kept between 20 and 37 degrees centigrade.

Avoid extremes of temperature.

Semen analysis samples must be brought directly to Andrology within one hour of production.

Post vasectomy samples must be brought directly to Andrology within 4 hours of production.

The patient must bring the specimen directly to Andrology reception on the first floor of the Department of Reproductive medicine in the Old Saint Mary's building on Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9WL
