Spermatozoa were cultured in vitro to monitor time-dependent changes in motility, viability, morphology, and membrane integrity. The degree of preservation of these clinically relevant sperm parameters over time was satisfactory. Extended culture probably can be used as a transient storage for sperm to compensate for a male's inability to produce sperm to synchronize oocyte retrieval in assisted reproduction.
