Systematic Assessment of Sperm Motility
Light scattering is becoming increasingly popular as an objective method of evaluating sperm motility.1–5 Studies on the effects of certain sperm stimulants necessitate continuous monitoring of control and treated samples for long periods of time.6 Here we describe briefly how such an experiment has been automated using an Apple II microcomputer. The autocorrelation function of the scattered light is computer fitted by theoretically appropriate functional forms to extract various parameters related to the sample motility.
