Sandstone Diagnostics, the small Bay Area startup that makes Trak, aims to “revolutionize consumer health care,” and it’s starting with male fertility, specifically an at-home sperm-analysis kit.

Sandstone’s solution is a small, hockey-puck-shape, double-A-powered centrifuge that whirls a small amount of semen around on a small propeller. The force created from that rapid rotation separates the seminal fluid from sperm and offers an FDA-approved reading of a man’s sperm count in just 45 minutes. Unlike a traditional lab test, Trak can’t measure sperm motility (movement) or morphology (shape), and it’s not the only device of its kind on the market, either. You can pick up over-the-counter kits like Sperm Check for around $30 at most pharmacies, but these tests only provide a positive or negative result while Trak can tell you where you fall on a fertility spectrum.

Using the Trak app, men can enter information about their health and lifestyle, receive tips on how to increase their sperm count and track fluctuations over time.
