Dual use of Diff-Quik-like stains for the simultaneous evaluation of human sperm morphology and chromatin status
background: Sperm chromatin status and nuclear DNA damage can be detected using well-established assays. However, most techniques are time-consuming and/or involve elaborate protocols and equipment. We have recently developed a simple and fast method to monitor sperm chromatin status in field conditions using the Diff-Quik assay which is employed in fertility clinics to assess sperm morphology with standard bright field microscopy. In the present study, we demonstrate that any Diff-Quik-likedoi:10.1093/humrep/den365 pmid:18835873 fatcat:ts7ko4s6vremrhp44faig4dhvy
