Semen samples should be collected into an artificial vagina to allow a meaningful interpretation. In addition to a full case history, details of methods of collection, the colour, consistency, volume and motility of the ejaculate should be submitted with the sample. An undiluted semen sample should be sent in a sterile container for sperm concentration and bacteriological examinations, and a sample diluted immediately 1:1 with formol citrate solution for sperm live:dead and morphology examinations.
