What does sperm motility (MOT) mean?

MOT is short for motility. It represents the number of active sperm cells per milliliter of specimen. Active sperm cells are those that are motile and can swim to the egg. For example, 1 ml MOT20 contains a minimum of 20 million active sperm cells after thawing. Remember, our sperm straws contain 0.5 ml which means that each straw contains a minimum of MOT/2 million active sperm cells.
