  • At MFS, we use and interpret results from all of the region's top andrology laboratories located right her in San Diego. The quality of a semen analysis is very highly dependent on the processing technique. Method of collection, time of specimen drop off, temperature of the specimen in the laboratory, pippeting technique, and counting system all can introduce error into the results.

    Daily controls by the lab are very important to standardize the process of semen analysis. Dr. Bastuba has the training and clinical experience to know bad data from good data and put it to use in patient care.
