BoviWash

Maximizes the yield of motile sperm and improves the fertilisation potential.

BoviWash is a medium for extending sperm prior to gradient treatment, and for washing the sperm pellet after the density gradient separation. It minimizes sudden pH and osmotic changes during the transition from semen sample to fertilisation medium. It also maximizes the yield of motile sperm and improves the fertilisation potential.

    • An isotonic salt solution.
    • Unopened bottles have a shelf-life of 12 months.
    • pH of 7.25 – 7.35 at room temperature and at 37°C.
    • Sterilised by filtration.
    • Content tested by sperm survival only.
    • Packaging is made up of borosilicate glass bottles, silicone stoppers and tamper-evident seals.
    • Bottles and stoppers have been M.E.A. tested.

  • Store at 10-30°C. Under these conditions BoviWash medium has a shelf-life of 12 months. The expiry date is shown on both bottles and cartons.

    • Store unopened bottles at 2 – 30°C, avoid temperatures above or below these values. Under these conditions BoviWash has a shelf life of 12 months. The expiry date is shown on the labels.
    • Open and close bottles under aseptic conditions. After opening, store the bottles at 2 – 8°C.
    • No antibiotics, unstable additives or preservatives have been added to BoviWash.
    • To ensure best possible results use aseptic conditions at all times.
    • When washing the semen, follow the instructions given in the product insert to avoid inadvertent contamination.
    • When centrifuging, use sealed buckets or centrifuge tubes to avoid the creation of aerosols.
    • BoviWash does not represent any fire or combustion hazard. A material safety data sheet is available from the manufacturer or distributor.

    “Our results indicate that both protocols gave suitable sperm for IVF. This finding and the similarity between those two density gradient preparations suggests that BoviPure is a good alternative for sperm separation in bovine IVF”

    “So, we concluded that BoviPure® could be considered as a better alternative to swim up method for separating bull spermatozoa from frozen/thawed semen for IVP of bovine embryos”.

    “These results demonstrate that bull semen can be frozen and thawed, followed by a second freeze-thawing cycle of a population of spermatozoa selected by PureSperm®, with retained motility and functional integrity. This points to the possibility of using double frozen spermatozoa in bovine artificial insemination programmes and to the potential benefits of PureSperm® density gradient centrifugation for the application of cryopreserved bull spermatozoa to other biotechnological procedures such as flow cytometric sex sorting followed by re-freezing and thawing.”
