The Andolody laboratory is part of the Department of Reproductive Medicine and deals with semen analysis, post vasectomy checks and sperm cryopreservation.

We are pleased to inform our patients that the Diagnostic Andrology service in the Department of Reproductive Medicine is resuming services as from the week beginning 29th June 2020.

The Andrology team will start by contacting patients whose semen analysis appointments were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and send a new appointment via the post. If this appointment date and time is unsuitable, please contact the department to rearrange by telephoning 0161 276 6473 or email us at

Please note we have put in place several measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection to patients and staff. It is trust policy that all staff, visitors and out patients will be required to wear a face mask when entering the Department of Reproductive Medicine. Face masks will be provided at all entrances of the hospitals and the patient must check in at reception when they arrive. Patients must attend their appointment alone. Patients must not attend the department if they have symptoms of Coronavirus. For more information regarding COVID-19 please refer to

Patients intending to drop off a sample for semen analysis or post vasectomy MUST telephone the department at least the day before, to arrange a ‘drop off’ appointment time. Appointment slots are limited so early booking is essential.

The UKNEQAS Reproductive Science schemes are also run out of this laboratory.

Reproductive Medicine is part of the Gynaecology services if you look up our location on the Trust website.
