An independent semen analysis service for bovine, porcine and equine semen. It offers a novel combination of Computer Assisted Semen Analysis (CASA) and Flow Cytometry together with phase contrast light microscopy by trained technicians, giving an objective, repeatable and reliable evaluation.
Independent semen quality analysis
Sire selection represents a critical management decision for livestock breeders. Reproductive capability of the sire can impact the economic performance and environmental impact of the immediate breeding season. Yet, recent UK studies suggest that 20-30% of fertility tested bulls are subfertile.
Previously sire fertility evaluation has relied solely on microscopy and the human eye to assess whether the sire is optimum for use within the herd. SemenRate can add objective assessment of motility, concentration and parts of the spermatozoa that cannot be assessed with standard microscopy.
