Important Information Regarding our Warranty: Sperm counts may differ as much as 20% to 40% among laboratories due to variations in methods and instruments used for sperm assessments. For this reason, the PRS warranty applies for variations greater than 30% when proper storage conditions are maintained by the recipient or her clinic and when pregnancy did not occur using the specimen. Warranty valid for up to 30 days after distribution, as PRS cannot guarantee storage conditions at other facilities.
