Rat Metrix Morphology

Rat Metrix Morphology is an optional program that analyzes sperm as fast as you can capture images. Offering “hook to tail” analysis, Rat Metrix combines fluorescent and standard illumination for analysis of difficult rat sperm shape. Using Rat Metrix helps to establish standardized, quality-controlled morph studies. Rat Metrix runs on any TOX IVOS (V10-V14) Analyzer.

Trained to Think Like You

With its interactive review feature, Rat Metrix adapts to your definitions of abnormal and normal sperm. To train Rat Metrix to think like you:

1) Capture hundreds of sperm cells to obtain a large sample base


2) View captured cells images, zoom on image and classify as normal or abnormal

RMZoom (1)

3) Metrix automatically calculates morphometrics based on your classifications. To finish, press “Learn Gates” to automatically transfer values calculated by Metrix into the Category Setup
