A method for evaluation of epididymal sperm count and motility in the rat
To study possible deleterious effects of environmental agents upon the male fertility a method to obtain live spermatozoa from rat epididymis was developed. The method was easy to carry out and produced reproducible results. The semen obtained was of good quality. Other methods to obtain sperm from rats and problems connected with these are discussed. Factors influencing the number and motility of spermatozoa obtained from rat epididymis are discussed.
