Description and Prod. No.

50 ml non-capacitating medium in glass bottle for semen washing, Prod. No. 1.05.050

The medium contains a very low concentration of Sodium Bicarbonate and is phosphate buffered and must therefore not be CO 2 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
