Important Information Regarding our Warranty: Sperm counts may differ by 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.
