"Gale-Onn" provides man fertility sperm lab service and
has labs in both Nazareth Iliit and Carmiel.
All services and tests are provided in both labs and both labs
operate under the instructions, license and strict supervision of the ministry
of health and the HMOs.
Gale-Onn offers its services to members of Maccabi and Meuhedet for no additional payment subject to providing
with the appropriate approvals. Members of other HMOs, soldiers and IDF
employees can be fully reimbursed for some of the services by presenting the
above with the relevant invoice.
Below are the main services offered by us. Nevertheless, the comprehensive
sperm analysis and sperm processing that covered by HMOs are done in Gale-Onn.
Additionally, in Gale-Onn, all other tests as very complicated microscopic and
biochemical test up to genetic test in semen are offered in Gale-Onn. If you
are not sure that the test you were sent to preform is provided by Gale-Onn?

Comprehensive Sperm Analysis
Sperm analysis is the first step to get basic knowledge about man
fertility problems. As part of the test; sperm count, sperm motility, sperm morphology
(structure) are tested and in addition, the test includes taking physical
parameters such as: semen color, volume, pH (acidity level), and viscosity, etc,
All the last indicating the physiological status of male genital system. Sometimes,
the received data require the broadening of the test to include the percentage
of live sperm cells, sperm cell survival ability over time or the presence of
inflammation cells in the seminal fluid and more. In order to execute the sperm,
test successfully and provide reliable answers, three types of microscopes and
three types of measuring tools are required. This is in addition to state of
the art are quality materials and kits. All the above supplementary equipment
is found in each of Gale-Onn's laboratories.
The estimated test time is one hour and the answers can be received
within 4 days via fax or e-mail. In special events answers may be given two
hours on the lab where the test was performed.
Preparation for Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)
It is critical to separate the sperm cells from the seminal fluid
prior to IUI. In Gale-Onn, in addition to the standard seminal fluid removal
(and for no additional cost) we separate the sperm cells using the prestigious "density
(DGC) which help selecting the mature sperm cells and removing nonmature and
defaulted sperm cells as well as immolation cells and other factors without
enhancing oxidative stress and affecting DNA integrity which can be harmed by
other techniques and reduce the pregnancy rates of success.
As choosing to suffice with the standard cheap and simple
separation procedures significantly decreases the pregnancy rate which is our
goal of success. Therefor in Gale-Onn laboratories the sperm preparation for IUI
is exclusively preformed using the density gradient
centrifugation. Sperm processing IUI is done under
the highest sophisticated conditions including class 2 Laminar Flow Hoods, sophisticated centrifuges and materials approved by the ministry
of health for human treatment. Furthermore, due to the advance equipment used
by Gale-Onn the sperms can be extracted from either the semen or at some cases
from the urine
when man suffer from "Retrograde Ejaculation".
The estimated time is 60-75 min. (for more about the advantages of

for Diagnostic Purposes
Proper treatment, of fertility problems, starts with a complete and accurate diagnosis which
can save disappointment and grievance which naturally accompany repeated failures. Therefore, subject to the comprehensive
sperm analysis' results or the gynecologist instructions, in addition to the comprehensive
sperm analysis, sperm processing is preform and so a better more accurate
picture of the state of the sperm cells can be drowned. The additional data, received by this procedure, allows you (the couple) and your gynecologist to select
the most efficient route to proceed the treatment in order to achieve
pregnancy. In addition, basic sperm analysis, sperm processing is necessary in
the following situations:
of sperms in seminal fluid as observed in standard test (Azoospermia);
of semen (Aspermia (and suspecting of Retrograde
low sperm count (cryptozoospermia)
of sperm mobility (Necrozoospermia)
This procedure takes an estimated 120-180 min.
