SupraSpermTM

Designed for safe and low risk sperm separation and purification by the density gradient method

SupraSperm is an HEPES and Bicarbonate buffered medium containing silane-coated, colloid silica particles.

It is designed to enables motile sperm to be separated from extraneous cells and seminal plasma and to select a subpopulation of cells with the highest capacity for fertilising an oocyte.

Contains SSR® with insulin that is shown to be a pro-survival factor for sperm1, 2.

Key Features

  • Suspension of colloidal silica particles coated with silane
  • With Human Serum Albumin: acts as an anti-sticking effect, antioxidant , scavenger of excess ions and reservoir for cholesterols, fatty acids and vitamins
  • For convenience available both as a ready-to-use gradient system (55% and 80%) and a 100% solution for individual preparation of gradients.
  • Contains SSR® with insulin

Availability

This product is available for sale in Europe, the U.S.A, Canada and Australia as well as selected countries in the rest of the world.
