Abstract

We demonstrate a rapid, sensitive, and low cost paper-based approach for sperm chromatin integrity analysis that quantifies both DNA fragmentation and packaging. The paper-based test provides identical clinical outcome as the gold standard sperm chromatin structure assay. This technology is fast, simple, and suitable for broad application in clinics.
