Liquid semen is extended with a long-life extender that maintains high livability and conception rate up to 7-9 days after collection. Thus, liquid semen can be shipped worldwide.
Frozen semen is processed in straws by a technique utilizing a Cryo-Med chamber to precisely control the freezing rate. The thawing procedure is simple and precise. Customers throughout the world have obtained 75 to 85 percent conception rate and good litter size utilizing SGI frozen semen.
