ISAS lab (Systems)


ISAS has been developed as a system which gathers tools to be used in both clinic and research semen analyses. Its application fields are for clinical human settings, scientific research and reproductive toxicology.

It is the best solution for those who want to obtain the most complete results for both clinic and research. It is designed to work in different conditions and with a wide range of species.

It can be considered as the most complete and easiest-to-use system in market which, furthermore it works in different hardware and operating-system conditions in order to adapt as much as possible to the end-user needs.

ISAS is especially designed for quality control programs, allowing the use of images, videos or collections of photographs for both motility and morphology.
