This is achieved by separating the sperm by density centrifugation prior to insemination, freezing, IVF or semen sexing. EquiPure not only eliminates a high proportion of the abnormal spermatozoa but also removes the source of reactive oxygen species, most bacteria and many viruses (EAV). This significantly increases the sperm survival and their fertilizing potential.
– Improves fertility rates, especially in sub-fertile stallions
– Improves freezeability of equine sperm
– Removes bacteria and other unwanted components from raw ejaculates or inseminating doses.
-Removes Equine Arteritis Virus (EAV) particles
-Studies performed on the hygienic aspects of semen storage for AI demonstrate that the addition of antibiotics to extenders is often not enough to eliminate the detrimental influence of bacteria on sperm motility, viability and fertility. EquiPure centrifugation prior to freezing removes bacteria and many viruses (EAV).
-Poor quality frozen semen: If the sperm to be treated are already frozen, thaw at 37ºC the straws, and wait for approximately 10 minutes prior centrifugation. Then, put the same volume of EquiPure (proportion 1:1). Example: In a tube of 15 mL, first add 2 mL of EquiPure (Bottom) 4 straws (2 mL) of semen (TOP) centrifuge 400 xg 20 minutes. Finally, resuspend the pellet with 1 to 2 mL of BotuCRIO.
