Male Factor Pak
THE MALE FACTOR PAK
Now it's easier to obtain high-quality semen samples for fertility and sterility testing and for use in other assisted reproductive technologies. The Male-Factor Pak allows patients to collect a specimen during intercourse, providing a natural alternative to yesterday's tradition: masturbation. It also gives medical specialists the opportunity to work with more representative samples than ever before.
Studies show that semen samples obtained through intercourse are more viable than those obtained through masturbation.1,2 Improved specimen viability and increased patient acceptance when masturbation is objectionable, are the benefits that medical professionals have been waiting for.3
Non-Spermicidal. Biologically inert polyurethane condom maintains sperm viability, motility and velocity. No mold releases or powders used in condom manufacture.
Psychologically Acceptable. Allows sample collection at home or other private settings and eliminates patient stress traditionally caused by religious, cultural or emotional objections to masturbation or coitus interruptus.
Comfortable and Gentle. Ultra-thin polyurethane facilitates sensitivity, satisfaction and high sexual stimulation.
Easy to Use. Patient simply cleans genitals prior to use, removes condom when erection has ceased after ejaculation, and closes condom with a provided twist-tie.
Easy to Transport. Patient seals condom in compact pouch with patient I.D. label, and transports to physician or laboratory, carrying it close to body to maintain specimen temperature.
Sterile. Individually sealed and packaged.
Less Costly. The Male-Factor Pak is priced lower than its leading competition.
Also, special instructions given to patients on how to produce the specimen, as well as, instructions on how semen is to be harvested from the MFP for laboratory assessment and processing exist and can be made available upon request.
