Quantitative analysis of seminal plasma (n=175) profile was carried out using 1H NMR spectroscopy and clinical symptoms were also observed in same samples with standard laboratory method. Multivariate discriminant function analysis (DFA) was carried out for the NMR observed metabolites and clinical symptoms data of the infertile and control cases, to find out important signature descriptors for classification. A new INFERTIX classification model was developed and proposed which is based on the results obtained from DFA for the different classes of infertile patients, with very high sensitivity and specificity values.
