Extending the life of sperm cells

The SpermVital technology adds another dimension to artificial insemination by extending 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 chances of successful fertilization.

 

SpermVital recommends the following use of the technology:

  • Early insemination

    Heat detection will be less time consuming and you will be able to inseminate as soon as you see the first signs of heat.

  • Weak signs of heat

    Timing of the inseminations will be less time critical, and therefore beneficial for the cows with weak or uncertain signs of heat

  • Problem cows
    Documented data shows that cows that returns to heat, benefit greatly from the SpermVital technology.
  • Avoid double inseminations 
    In many cases double inseminations are used when it is considered important to get the cow pregnant as soon as possible. This can be avoided by using Spermvital semen.
  • Increase flexibility
  • Timing of inseminations will be less time critical, and inseminations on weekends and holidays can be avoided.
