Dear MES Team,
I would like to thank Medical Electronic Systems for being a very dependable and committed company. During the past several years, our hospital has used the SQA-V and SQA-V Gold automated sperm quality analyzers to provide our patients and physicians with accurate and reliable test results.
The SQA-V Gold analyzers are extremely east to use and very well designed for patient testing. I really appreciate the low maintenance required and small foot print of the analyzers. The quality control is very simple and easy to perform and there are no calibrations needed. Before any specimens can be tested, the instrument performs its own self-test to ensure all optical systems are operating correctly. Our hospital performs approximately 250 sperm quality tests per year for area physicians and we rely solely on the SQA-V Gold to perform these tests.
Out current analyzer is several years old and very rarely has any problems. However, when problems do occur, the technical assistance center is very easy to contact and more than willing to help walk through resolving the problem. If the problem cannot be resolved, they will overnight you a loaner instrument so they can perform any repairs needed. I have never dealt with a team as organized and caring as the team at MES. They are dedicated to helping you in whatever way they can and do a great job keeping in touch throughout the year.
I have been very pleased with the products and customer service received throughout out business relationship and look forward to purchasing the newest SQA-Vision analyzer soon.

To Whom it May Concern,
We purchased a SQA-V Gold from MES three years ago. Purchasing the analyzer was one of the best decisions I have made a(s) lab director. We are now able to run both fresh and post vasectomy sample types in-house. The analyzer is precise, accurate, and easy to use. The SQA-Gold is also a tech time saver, which is priceless for a smaller laboratory. I have found the MES support staff to be both knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this analyzer to anyone.

RE - SQA-V
The SQA-V Semen Analyzer is a dependable and accurate part of our fertility and post vasectomy evaluations. The system is easy to use, with very stable QC and few required reagents to operate. Preventative Maintenance is a breeze, as we simply receive a loaner from MES and return our unit for service in the same shipping container. I would strongly recommend the SQA-V Semen Analyzer to any facility considering automating their semen analysis.

L’analyse des paramètres spermatiques que constitue le spermogramme est le premier outil diagnostic permettant l’évaluation du versant masculin du couple infertile. Cet examen indispensable avant toute prise en charge ultérieure se doit d’être réalisé à plusieurs reprises en raison des variabilités intra-individuelles . Les résultats qui sont obtenus lors de cet examen, ainsi que le contexte clinique de l’infertilité du patient et de sa conjointe, sont déterminants pour orienter la prise en charge du couple. L’examen manuel macroscopique et microscopique de l’échantillon reste actuellement la méthode de référence pour la réalisation du spermogramme dans la majorité des laboratoires. Cette analyse souffre de grandes variabilités intra- et inter-laboratoires et d’un manque de précision malgré les efforts fournis . Les dernières recommandations de l’OMS, concernant l’analyse du sperme, publiées en 2010, ont permis de sensibiliser les laboratoires à la mise en place stricte des techniques décrites et ainsi de tendre vers la standardisation des procédures. La participation à des contrôles qualité internes au laboratoire ou externes par le biais de sociétés spécialisées ou d’autres laboratoires partenaires est également un moyen de réduire les variabilités entre opérateurs ou laboratoires. Développés depuis plus de 20 ans, les automates de spermiologie ont progressé jusqu’à constituer aujourd’hui une alternative intéressante à l’analyse manuelle du spermogramme, permettant d’associer fiabilité des résultats et variabilité minimale.
226 human semen samples were tested at Medical Electronic Systems, LTD and Nantes University France to confirm the Accuracy and Precision of the SQA-VISION
To test the new convenience features of the SQA-Vision vs. the SQA-V and manual semen assessment: Swim-up, Density Gradient, Longevity, Vitality, Morphology Counter, Scanning Debris/Round Cells, SQA-Vision Visualization Validation. These parameters were always available to the SQA-V customers, but were tracked or recorded manually on separate pages or forms. The new SQA-Vision system is based on the SQA-V platform (1), but streamlines the assessment and data collection processes by allowing this information to be part of the standard patient record. The objective of this trial is to determine that these semen assessment features perform as designed, and provide the correct results vs. reference method (SQA-V and manual semen assessment where applicable) and vs. manufacturer claims. None of these convenience features include new algorithms for reporting semen values. Additionally, some of the features are not run automatically on the SQA-Vision, but are run manually using the visualization system of the SQA-Vision instead of the microscope. In these cases, the microscope will be considered the GOLD STANDARD for comparison.
