In order for maximum reproductive efficiency to be gained from the use of frozen semen, it is essential that the product be frozen, stored and thawed correctly.
Temperature and time are essential variables for correct thawing of semen.
Both freezing and thawing cause damage to spermatozoa. In order to minimize such damage, rapid thawing in the correct temperature interval is necessary.
Studies show that thawing procedures are important regardless of how the semen is processed, however, correct thawing is essential for Sperm Vital since the Sperm Vital processed semen is an extended release gel. Conventional insemination equipment and technique is recommended (we recommend 36-38°C for at least 1 minute, and then inseminate as soon as possible).
