Announcement
It is with much sadness that we are announcing that Stan Grossman is no longer with the Arizona Andrology Laboratory. He has been part of the family for over four years. We wish him the very best in all his future endeavors.

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our members and visitors of our website to Amy Perkins. She is joining the Arizona Andrology Laboratory & Cryobank and will be your contact for informative responses to all of your semen analysis questions. She will be completing her master’s degree within the next month at the University of Arizona. She has been working with an affiliated fertility research laboratory and will continue to support that area as well. We are very excited and know that you will enjoy communicating with her.

The Arizona Andrology Laboratory & Cryobank is committed to providing confidential, state-of-the-art male fertility testing and processing in a uniquely professional and friendly atmosphere. 
    
To give the greatest possible coverage, care and flexibility for both patients and physicians, all procedures and testing is available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week!  For our normal working hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, simply call (520) 885-2689 to schedule an appointment (available the same day as the call).  For after hours, weekends, or holidays, just call (520) 954-5228 to schedule an appointment.
    
Our laboratory offers complete Semen Analysis panel test with same day results faxed to your physician.  All specimens are examined within 20 minutes of delivery to laboratory to ensure the highest level of accuracy.  The laboratory also offers a complete line of Semen Washes or Semen Processing for intrauterine insemination.  Each wash is “custom tailored” to each patient’s individual needs.  Patients can drop off a specimen at the laboratory for a wash and take it to their physician for an IUI all in a hour or less, along with a complete two Semen Analysis -- both before and after the wash.
    
The AALC offers quality sperm banking (freezing) as well on a 24 hours a day / 7 days a week basis to ensure there is no delay in patient treatment and provide a flexible time based on the patients and physician’s needs.  Patients may need to bank or Cryopreserve sperm for many reasons.  Some of these include:
    
·  Chemotherapy or radiation therapy that can leave a man sterile.
·  Surgery that can cause nerve damage that impair fertility.
·  Before a vasectomy as “insurance” in case later circumstances arise in 
   which the man desires to be fertile again.
·  During a reversal procedure in case the results are less than optimal.
·  For men at risk to occupational exposure to chemicals or other  
   environmental factors that can make a man sterile.
    
A semen analysis is a great start to checking on a man’s fertility and ability to father a child, but sometimes there are other factors that can impair fertility.  The AALC offers a full line of advanced semen function testing to check for such factors including a Strict Morphology test that examines the shape and features of the sperm in critical detail.  Our Antibody Sperm Assay can detect antibodies that can cause sperm to clump together, impairing fertility.  The White Blood Cell count assay can determine if too many of these cells are present in the semen, which can cause an increase in certain chemical that harm sperm, or may be a sign of infection.  Our Pellet Count test can detect if even a few sperm are present in the semen, and the Fructose Assay can check for blockage which may be preventing the sperm from being in the semen. 
    
Infertility can be a stressful, troubling, and often confusing issue for many couples.  We take the “mystery” out of infertility.  The AALC offers complete, compassionate, and focused counseling to educate and inform couples on all their test results and outline all the possible options for them to have a child.  Unlike some of the “large labs” that do many, many different kinds of testing, the AALC is strictly an andrology (male fertility) laboratory.  I feel this complete focus allows us to provide the best possible care for patients and couples that need the best fertility testing possible.
    
Questions? Comments? Don’t hesitate to call us. We are on call for you fulltime. We are here for you fulltime. I look forward to hearing from you, whatever your fertility issues or questions might be...
    

Sincerely,

    

J. Stan Grossman, BS

Laboratory Supervisor
