Table 1

Effect of laser trap duration and laser power on sperm motility.

Average velocity ratio
5sec 0.9473,+0.18
10sec 0.9097,+0.19
15sec 0.8602,+0.23
420mW 0.9473,+0.18
350mW 0.9251,+0.14
300mW 0.9475,+0.14
250mW 0.9564,+0.13

Note: Average velocity ratios ( +∕− standard deviation) for various trap durations (constant trapping power, 420mW ) and various trapping powers (constant duration 5sec ). The 15-sec trap duration has the greatest average decrease in VCL post-trapping.
