Seem Kit iPhone App Uses Video To Test Your Sperm Count at Home

Men can check their sperm count with the Seem Kit app on their iPhone.

A low sperm count is the main cause for male infertility. If a couple is not able to get pregnant, one of the regular things to check is the sperm count of the man. This requires a trip to the doctor and filling up a cup with semen. A lab test is delivering the answer if your sperm count is in order. Japanese men will be able to test their semen at home instantly with a new iPhone app to be released this month.

The Seem kit includes a microscopic lens that attaches to the iPhone and a cup. A drop of semen is placed on the lens and the Seem app is taking a video of the sample. The video is then automatically analyzed by image recognition algorithms. The sperm count is then displayed graphically along with standard values to compare with.

Japan is apparently the perfect market as men shy away from visiting clinics for testing. "As it is, it is mostly women who visit clinics, even though their male partners play a part in nearly half of the infertility cases," said spokeswoman Ayumi Tokura to Japan Times.

Recruit Lifestyle Co. will market the Seem kit for 5,000 yen ($47) in a limited trial of 500 sets.

About a year ago an app called iSperm offered by Aidmics made headlines. iSperm is an iPad app that tests the sperm count in boar semen. Back then reports said that a version for humans is in the works. Aidmics is based in Taiwan and could be behind the new Seem Kit. The concept is very similar. Watch below a video showing how iSperm works.
