- SAT is a diagnostic test to study the genetic etiology of male infertility.
- It allows us to evaluate the presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in the sperm.
- In couples with severe male factor infertility, there is a higher risk of transmission of sperm chromosomal abnormalities to the offspring.

- Useful tool to provide personalized genetic counseling to the infertile couple previous to an IVF treatment.
In couples with an abnormal SAT, it is indicated to perform PGS (Preimplantation Genetic Screening) to select chromosomally normal embryos for transfer.
- Male factor infertility: low sperm concentration is correlated with a higher incidence of S.C.A.
