Investigation of Polymer Functional Groups and Their Impact on Sperm Viability

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

The accuracy of sperm viability assessments is essential for informed decisions regarding reproductive health. The impact of lab materials on sperm cell motility remains understudied. Bioassays of sperm motility on lab materials were conducted to determine unusual decline trends. SEM/EDS images were captured to determine potential contaminants within the lab materials. FTIR peaks were analyzed to determine functional groups present. All data is analyzed for potential effect on motility.
