Services (appointments need to be obtained in advance)
Diagnosis of male infertility. The laboratory is well equipped with top quality medical and
laboratory equipment for determination of reasons responsible for male infertility (Computer Assisted
Sperm Analyses, spectrophotometer, endoscope, cell freezers, phase and immunfluorescens microscope, etc.) and for
application of assisted reproductive techniques (cryopreservation of oocytes, sperm and embryos, in vitro
fertilization, embryotransfer, artificial insemination, etc.).
The price of more complex, specific tests and procedures to be determined after consultation.
The laboratory takes part in the theoretical and practical education of veterinary students and - in the frame of post-graduate courses - veterinarians. We also take part in the education program of BSc/MSc biologist students and PhD students. We support the students in the preparation of their diploma thesis (we provide laboratory environment for their practical work as well).
The financial support for the activity of the Laboratory for Andrology and Assisted Reproduction is completely provided from outside sources (foundations, research grants, companies, etc.). Research areas: long term storage of gametes (oocytes, semen) and embryos, cryopreservation of spermatozoa, oocytes and embryos (in vivo and in vitro), determination of different factors influencing the results of cryopreservation, spindle view technique, polarization microscopy, in vitro fertilization, semen quality evaluation, computer assisted semen analyses, prediction of fertilizing capability of spermatozoa, determination of seminal plasma components and their relation to fertility, application of assisted reproductive procedures in small ruminants. The laboratory has a very good collaboration with the Infertility and IVF Center of Szent János Medical Center on the field of embryo and ocyte cryopreservation. One of the results of this collaboration is the birth of the first baby from frozen oocytes in Hungary in 2005 (Hungary was the 8th country in the world and 3rd country in Europe where a baby was born from frozen oocyte).
