The culture media are formulated with the ideal proportion of salts and viscosity to mimic the oviductal fluid and physiological environment for the sperm.

  • Sperm swim-up medium (SUM)

    The medium is presentend in two separated components (1 and 2) that need to be mixed in order to have the final working medium for swim-up.

    Before doing the swim-up, the medium needs to be supplemented with a source of protein such as albumin or, our recommendation, 1% v/v Natur-ARTs POF-LF (porcine oviductal fluid from late follicular phase of the estrous cycle).

    The medium is suitable to be used with boar ejaculated semen, both refrigerated as frozen-thawed.
