Sperm Filter

Nidacon SpermFilter™

BotuPharma’s SpermFilter technique prepares semen for cryopreservation and EquiPure treatment, gently treats poor-quality, low concentration semen samples and avoids sperm agglutination. SpermFilter from Spectrum Technologies: your one-stop source for equine sperm purification.

To Prepare Semen for Cryopreservation

Concentration of stallion sperm is often needed for the sperm cryopreservation procedure. Cushioned centrifugation is the most common procedure used, but this process can cause deleterious effects, including reduction in sperm quality as well as loss of sperm numbers and agglutination. Therefore SpermFilter, a new technology, has been developed. The filter is made up by a hydrophilic synthetic membrane and has shown its efficiency to concentrate stallion sperm. SpermFilter allows retrieval of almost all sperm from the original sample without causing any damage.

To Prepare Semen for EquiPure Treatment

Concentrating the sperm prior to EquiPure treatment is needed for samples with low sperm concentration. SpermFilter is ideal in combination with EquiPure®. SpermFilter concentrates and EquiPure purifies.

Gentle Treatment of Poor-quality, Low-concentration Semen Samples

The SpermFilter-technique is especially useful with semen of poor quality, for separating sperm from seminal plasma, and/or extender, concentrating sperm for freezing and cooling or for EquiPure centrifugation to concentrate sperm for low doses AI.

Avoids Sperm Agglutination

Cushioned centrifugation tends to cause sperm agglutination. Low concentration samples are often low quality samples and are more prone to agglutinate. SpermFilter is a more suitable option for these samples.

Re-usable after Washing

You can re-use the SpermFilter up to 10 times for the same stallion.

Quick and Simple

It is a one-step procedure that only takes minutes.
