Semen Fructose
The seminal vesicles contribute a significant amount of fluid to the total ejaculate volume via the ejaculatory duct. The vesicles are also a source of fructose. For patientís that have a semen specimen absent of sperm (azoospermia) the absence of fructose in their semen can be a strong indication of blockage distal to the seminal vesicles. The Semen Fructose Assay checks qualitatively for the presence or absence of fructose in the semen. Generally, the assay will only be clinically significant if the patient is azoospermic; therefore, a Complete Semen Analysis should accompany the Semen Fructose test.
