About SwimCount™

About our company

In 2010, Jacob Møllenbach and Steen Laursen had an ambitious idea: They wanted to develop a home test that could measure men's sperm quality by measuring the concentration of Progressive Motile Sperm Cells as opposed to the already existing tests on the market that only measure total sperm count. 

Progressive Motile Sperm Cells are the only type of sperm that can fertilize a woman's eggs in a natural way.

Jacob and Steen have more than 20 years of experience within fertility treatment and artificial insemination - Steen as a researcher with the Danish National Hospital Rigshospitalet and later co-owner of a fertility clinic in Fredericia and Jacob as R&D Manager in the IVF Industry.

In 2011, after extensive work on developing the product, our company MotilityCount ApS was established. The patent for the SwimCount™ Membrane Swim-Up Technology was granted in 2014.

In 2015, we achieved the goal – SwimCount™ Sperm Quality Test
, the first home sperm quality test, was developed and ready to give men a valid answer to their sperm quality. Our SwimCount™ Semen Quality Test got European Union CE approval in 2015 and later the upgraded IVDR CE approval in 2022. And US FDA 510(k) Clearance was obtained in 2019

We are a truly international company, and our ambition is to increase awareness of male fertility and make it possible for you to have your baby dream come true, the sooner the better. In a world of increasing fertility problems, we know that EVERY DAY COUNTS.
