Bovine - Semen Wash Medium

For washing of semen during centrifugation prior to in vitro fertilization

50 ml non-capacitating medium in glass bottle for semen washing

The medium contains a very low concentration of Sodium Bicarbonate and is phosphate buffered and must therefore not be CO2 equilibrated

The medium is ready-to-use and does not need any supplements Medium should be preheated to 38.8°C prior to use with the lid on

Key Ingredients

Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Sulphate, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Dihydrogen Phosphate, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Pyruvate, Phenol Red and Gentamycin


Advantages of using a non-gradient and non-capacitating medium:

  • The capacitation of the spermatozoa is delayed until they are in the actual IVF medium with the oocytes
  • Spermatozoa preserve energy for the subsequent capacitation, acrosome reaction and fertilization
  • Potential toxic gradients and excessive centrifugation is avoided
  • The Semen Wash Medium also applies very well to sex-sorted semen
