Idiopathic infertility is responsible for 50% of male infertility cases, which are increasing at a fast rate over the last years. This means that today’s diagnostic tools are insufficient to determine the cause of their condition.

The unexplained reasons behind idiopathic male infertility are also the missing link for the development of effective treatments for those individuals.

Consequently, there is an urge for new biomarkers to shed light on these undetected cases. Such a biomarker is telomere length.

Today numerous research studies show a clear correlation between telomere length and male infertility.

Our solution

Life Length is the only company in the world offering robust telomere length  measurements in sperm.

We have developed a unique protocol using our proprietary TAT technology than can analyze more than 250 telomere variables on sperm with the aim of establishing telomere length as a biomarker for sperm quality and detection of idiopathic infertility.
