We report a real-time technique for assessing the number of motile sperm in a semen sample. The time of flight technique uses a flow channel with detection at the end of the channel using quartz crystal microbalances. Data presented suggests that a simple rigid mass model may be used in interpreting the change in resonant frequency using an effective mass for the sperm.
