MAR Test

Mixed antiglobulin reaction test. A semen test used to detect antisperm antibodies – a response from the immune system which incorrectly targets sperm. Usually sperm are protected against attack from the immune system by a barrier between the testes and the blood but if this get broken, for example by an injury or vasectomy, the immune system creates antibodies against the sperm which can affect a man’s fertility.
