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.

Easy to use and very good quality report.
Wael Abd El-Razek Youssef, WIS Pharm Exp. & Imp.
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!
