Smartphone Microscope Enables Men to Check Their Sperm Count at Home
What a time to be alive. You will soon be able to check the health of your sperm using a tiny lens that fits onto your smartphone. The service is already available in Japan, and professor Yoshitomo Kobori from the University of Illinois is hoping to bring it to the rest of the world very soon.
Kobori came up with the idea after recognizing how big of an issue infertility is in Japan, and also identifying that Japanese men look down upon sperm testing. Utilizing a lens that has been on the market for some time now, Kobori and the rest of the research team is hoping to bring sperm testing to everyone without having to navigate through medical offices.
