Microdeletions occur in about one in 4000 men in the general population but its frequency is significantly increased among infertile men (Krausz C, 2014).
Sample DNA or material for DNA isolation. For patients DNA sample microdeletions of the regions AZFa (markers sY84, sY86) AZFb (markers sY127, sY134) and AZFc (sY254, sY255) according to EMQN and EAA guidelines (Krausz C, 2014).
