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.

Halldor Felde Berg from SpermVital has defended his PhD in reproductive biology
The overall aim of the PhD thesis was to acquire more knowledge about the SpermVital (SV) alginate gel, particularly concerning dissolution, sperm quality, and fertility following insemination. Also, the response of Norwegian Red heifers and cows to estrous synchronization and induction of ovulation was assessed. The findings of the thesis demonstrated a competitive reproductive performance of SV processed semen compared with standard processed semen following AI, despite using fewer SV...

Great results with SpermVital in Turkey
The results fom the Field Trial in Turkey shows a 12 % higher pregnancy rate for SpermVital compared to regular semen.
 The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of SV technology on conception rates in repeat breeder multiparous dairy. Seventy-nine Holstein cows from a private dairy farm were included in the study, and these animals were cows that had failed to conceive from at least 3 regularly spaced services (repeat breeders) The cows were synchronized by 2 injections of a PGF2α, (500 μg D-Cloprostenol, Estrumate®),administered 11 days apart from each other. GnRH (10μg Buserelin, Receptal®) was...

At the European conference for station veterinarians, AI-vet, in Denmark in October, Dr. Friedrich Führer from the Austrian breeding company Genostar presented field data from the use of SpermVital in the Austrian market.
The company has analyzed field data from 32 herds that have used SpermVital.The data shows that on average SpermVital and regular processed semen is giving the same result in the field, but that there are also individual differences between the farms. Experience from other markets show that is SpermVital is very often used in a different way than regular semen. We often see that it is used when the farmer is uncertain about the time of insemination as well as on problem cows. Therefore, data...
