We are very happy with the fast replies and support we are getting from the company and also about the system itself. It is very user friendly.
System SCA, Microptic gives objective and fast analysis. Software is easy and friendly to use.
We do started using SCA since 2006 in our clinic (ALAMAL Fertility centre ) and it actually makes a great real difference in seminal fluid evaluation and management. A lot of my friends have got surprised when I decided to bring the SCA to my clinic as it was a little bit more expensive than some systems which were already exist in my city that time but I decided to use SCA , and now after 8 years using SCA , I am proud of taking that decision and I am ready to take it again if I have the choice. Thank you all , the team of Microptics, of being always very helpful.
I’ve worked on SCA systems for 3 years (2008-2010), they are a good systems, durable, reliable. and user friendly. Mictoptic S.L is a professional Comp. that really considered as a market leader and innovated market player in the field of SCA. I do recommend SCA systems for the easiest, accurate, and configurable systems. Eventually, Microptic S.L management (CEO, Export Manager, Technical Manager, and Application staff) are all at high professionalism and successful business oriented.
I recommend this product
Easy to use and very good quality report.
We are using the SCA systems for 5 years (2009-2014) and still ongoing. Before that period we used a glass camera for semen analysis and manual counting. As a lab manager I will share that the SCA system is really reliable and independent. It gives a good idea about what is the real concentration, motility and velocity of the spermatozoa in the semen sample; the morphology of every single spermatozoa, using strict criteria; the percentage of DNA fragmentation in sperm. The systems has good quality, reliable and repeated results and user friendly. Microptic S.L is a professional Company and always gives immediate help and advice. I do recommend SCA systems for the easiest, accurate, and configurable systems. Go ahead, you are a great team!
