Leukocytes, predominantly polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN, neutrophils), are present in most human ejaculates. Elevated concentrations of leukocytes in semen indicates male accessory gland infections and associated with poor semen quality and reduced fertility. Also, leukocytospermia is known to induce oxidative stress which may lead to DNA damage in sperms. Leukochek kit, CryoLab International is simple, quick and inexpensive for screening of leucocytes. The test identifies leukocytes in semen based on the Cyto-chemical stain for peroxidase activity. Cells (Leukocytes) that contain peroxidase activity stain brown and other cells counter stain pink.
