Semen test

BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® semen test

Our BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Semen Test is a rapid test for the detection of PSA from traditional biological samples (serum, plasma or blood), but also from semen samples taken with a swab from the clothing or body of the alleged victim of a sexual assault.

Sensitivity of the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Semen Test

The semen test is extremely sensitive (it detects PSA levels of 4 ng/ml or more) and is perfectly suited for use in forensic medicine: reliable, quick and easy to use.

How the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Sperm Test works

How does our sperm test work? Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is an intracellular glycoprotein synthesized only by the male prostate gland and secreted into the seminal fluid. The method uses a unique combination of labeled monoclonal conjugate (mouse) and monoclonal antibody (solid phase) to selectively identify PSA antigen in samples with high sensitivity.

As the sample passes through the absorbent paper of the semen test, the colloidal gold conjugate binds to the antigen, forming an antigen-antibody complex. This complex binds to the anti-PSA antibodies in the positive reaction window (T), the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Sperm Test produces a burgundy colored band if the PSA antigen is present at a concentration greater than 4 ng/ml. If no antigen is present, no colored band appears in the window of the semen test. This protein is used in forensic medicine as a marker of choice for the detection of sexual assaults, even when committed by men who have undergone vasectomy.

Evaluation of the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® semen test

The test offers both high sensitivity and speed, as well as simplicity compared to a traditional ELISA method. An evaluation of the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Sperm Test was conducted in 1997 for use in forensic medicine. The publication of these results shows that the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Sperm Test is perfectly suited for this use.

Why use the BLUESTAR® Identi® PSA® sperm test

Very simple and quick to use, the semen test can be used easily at any location. When the quantity detected at a crime scene is sufficient, the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® semen tests allow to confirm that it is semen and can be used directly in the field. They work on the same principle as the BLUESTAR® Identi-HEM® & BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® human hemoglobin tests.

It is necessary to wait for laboratory tests to confirm the presence of semen.

What is included in a BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® test kit?

Everything is included in our “Bluestar® Identi-PSA® Sperm Test” kits, in order to carry out the sampling and the test:

  • Swab
  • Diluent sample
  • Integrated dropper
  • Test cassette
  • Instructions for use

How to use the BLUESTAR® Identi-PSA® Semen Test

The first time, you must prepare the stage and the sperm test. The technician must wear protective clothing to avoid contamination.
  1. Collect a sample and transfer it to the diluent vial
  2. Close the cap of the diluent, then, mix.
  3. Break the cap off the diluent bottle (drop by drop)
  4. Pour 4 drops into the well of the test box (wait up to 10 minutes before reading the test);
  5. Read the test: one line in the “C” field means that the test worked correctly, a second line in the “T” field means that the test is positive.
