SpermVital – a result of 15 years intensive research

SpermVital semen (dissolved in vitro) Colored so that the living are green all over, the dead are red and the acrosome reacted have a green acrosome.  Lower right: A fraction of SpermVital alginate with intact living sperms.

The SpermVital technology is a result of 15 years research. The story started with a dream of being able to make the timing of artificial insemination less critical and, therefore being able to give farmers more flexibility.


By prolonging the life of bovine sperms from 24 up to 48 hours, SpermVital is now able to offer a technology that fulfills this dream.


The development of the SpermVital technology is supported by a large research team and the goal is to develop the technology further by improving the semen's survivability and longevity, and also be able to transfer the technology to other livestock species. SpermVital's research team consists of nine highly dedicated researchers within cell biology, veterinarian medicine and biopolymers.

In addition we cooperate with Norway's most prestigious research group at the SINTEF Research Institute and at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science.


€ 7 MILLION IN RESEARCH OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS

During 2017 SpermVital has a R&D project portfolio with granted public support of approximately € 7 Million. The goal is to further develop the company’s cutting edge technology. The funding makes the company able to improve the technology and further expand the understanding of the complex biological processes that is present at the time of conception as well as transferring the technology to other animals.
