New revolutionary technology – prolongs the lifespan of semen

SpermVital –
Increasing possibilities

The idea behind the SpermVital technology is to extend the life of spermatozoa after insemination. To achieve this, sperm cells are immobilized in a natural substance before cryopreservation. This immobilization preserves energy and enables a controlled release of sperm cells in the uterus after insemination over an extended period of time. This makes timing of insemination less critical with regards to ovulation in the female, and increases the odds of fertilization success.

 

New revolutionary technology – prolongs the lifespan of semen

 

 ADVANTAGES

  • Timing of insemination will be less critical.
  • Conception rate will be higher than or at least equal to conventional semen.
  • Inseminations per heat can be reduced.
  • Inseminations on weekends and public holidays can be reduced or avoided altogether.
  • Conventional insemination equipment and technique is used.
    (we recommend 36-38°C for at least 1 minute, and then inseminate as soon as possible)

For the herd owner, this translates to reduced insemination costs and improved herd fertility, both factors that lead to increased profitability.

New research project through Regional Research Funds in Norway
SpermVitals project «New products for improved cost-effective production of cryopreserved semen with high fertilization ability» was granted through the Regional research funds in Norway this summer.
The project is a collaboration between SpermVital, Cryogenetics, SINTEF and Geno. SpermVital and Cryogenetics offers products and services within artificial insemination for the national and international markets for cattle and fish respectively. Both companies experiences an increased demand and a need to improve the cost-effectiveness in their production of cryopreserved semen doses. The projects objective is to develop new improved products for cryopreservation of spermatozoa from cattle a...
