Clinic Overview


Research-backed, individualized testing for male fertility evaluation

The Male Fertility Lab is a full-service clinical andrology laboratory, providing patients and care providers with state-of-the-art testing for male infertility that’s tailored to achieve the best outcomes for individual needs.

Male infertility is caused by a variety of problems and having a complete and accurate diagnosis is essential to determining the most appropriate course of treatment. We specialize in analysis, sperm function tests, sperm retrieval and preparation and sperm freezing. We offer advanced tests you won’t find elsewhere, such as computerized sperm analysis, comet assay for sperm DNA fragmentation, hyperactivation, acrosome reaction, electron microscopy, reactive oxygen species and more. Our tests and procedures are backed by published studies so you get validated, meaningful results.

Established in 1979, the Male Fertility Lab serves physicians, clinics and patients throughout UW Medicine, Seattle, the Puget Sound area and Washington state, and is affiliated with private IVF programs and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Make an appointment via the Men's Health Center, or call 206-598-6358. For immediate fertility preservation help, call 206-314-5268. For more information, read this document or print a requisition form.
