Scientists at the University of Sheffield have used NMR spectroscopy to examine the molecules in live sperm, and early data suggests it could discriminate between populations of good and poor sperm. Thus, it might be useful to improve diagnosis of sperm problems because it is non-destructive, so the sperm examined could be used in fertility treatments after analysis.
