A simple spot test for the detection of fructose deficiency in semen.

Abstract

The concentration of fructose in seminal plasma is an important variable that should be measured in the assessment of fertility status. The current method requires the boiling of diluted seminal plasma with resorcinol. The present study offers a new two-point spot test which uses the metol method. The results of analysis of 104 seminal plasma samples are in excellent correlation with the resorcinol method. The reported method is easy to use, inexpensive, and can be introduced into any laboratory.
