623. Transportation of Semen Specimens

17 August 2004 by Karen Green
I am a healthcare planner currently working on plans for a new Rep Med Department as part of a large new hospital building project in Manchester. I would like some information as to whether it is feasible/possible to transport semen samples via a very low velocity pneumatic tube system without detriment to the sample. Does anyone use this method of transporting samples or does anyone have any knowledge of where it is used? I would be very grateful for information on this. thanks

24 July 2004 by William Wong
Someone asked me to send this question to IVF mail, hope can get help. He works in a private IVF lab. His work duty is all work as a lab director, embryologist and andrologist. Every year, he does 250 fresh IVF cycles, 60 Frozen cycles, 300-400IUI and ~300 complete semen analysis, and QC, QA, QI, CAP inspection paper work, SART data entry, supply order and all others in ART labortory by himself. He wants to know how many employees should work in such lab according to your opinion. Because there is no regulation about this issue from CLIA, CAP and other organization, it is very difficult to get information.
