Buying or selling a bull, buck, boar, or stallion?

Go beyond the breeding soundness exam. Sperm motility only tells part of the story. For a sperm to effectively fertilize an egg, it needs an intact acrosome and good quality DNA.

Buying straws?

It’s expensive to breed your animals.

If you know the sperm quality is good before you breed, you’ll have a greater chance of a full term pregnancy and more babies on the ground. We can tell you how the sperm in your straw looks, or the raw ejaculate relative to other samples.

We scientifically analyze sperm cells looking at traits, that impact reproductive success.

Want to know more before you breed?

Our quality control assay will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the quality of sperm. By conducting this test before you breed you won't waste time and money on low quality sperm.

We will give you a clear picture of how effective sperm will be and the likelihood of producing offspring. This way you know the quality of sperm before you inseminate females.

Because Infertility is Expensive

Sperm quality greatly affect chances of pregnancy. Breeding Soundness Exams may not tell the whole story. Testing overall breeding characteristics of the animal, but they do not do an in-depth sperm analysis. This means even after passing a BSE, the animal’s sperm could have issues, making achieving pregnancy difficult. What if there was a way to know more about semen quality before inseminating a female?  

Membrane Protection Technologies, Inc. will perform a custom sperm quality assay so that you get the most out of artificial insemination. With this analysis you can increase the odds of pregnancy, and purchase the best straws or live animals.

What Quality Control Services Tell You

MPTI’s sperm quality assay evaluates eight key qualities of the sperm.

#1

Motility: The ability of sperm to fertilize an egg based on its movement.Go beyond a BSE. Learn more about your sperm quality now!

This is a video of sperm that is moving ‘correctly’ and is more likely to fertilize an egg.
Sperm that are moving progressively are indicated by green lines. The red doe indicates the sperm was counted but not moving. Blue lines and yellow indicate the speed that the cells are moving. A slow swimming cell can often be assumed to be of poor quality.

This video shows how the sperm is measured by a machine called a Computer Assisted Sperm Analyzer. This takes out all human bias and subjectivity in assessment of sperm quality.  

#2

Sperm Quality: An evaluation of sperm cell health by sperm physiology..

#3

Bacterial Load: The number of active bacteria contaminating the sperm, impacting sperm health and full term pregnancy or early pregnancy loss..

#4

Concentration: The total number of sperm cells in the sample.

#5

Morphology: The percentage of sperm with no physical defects.

#6

DNA Quality: The major case of early embryonic loss.

#7

Antioxidant Capacity: The level of antioxidants present in the raw ejaculate, affected by diet and seasonality.

#8

General Ejaculate Characteristics: The pH and osmolality show if the environment is optimum for the cells.

3 easy steps

1. Call MPTI to arrange a test 970-484-9842
2. Ship us two/three straws of frozen semen per bull, or we can send a kit for collection.
3. We’ll email you the results, and be available to discuss them with you, or your veterinarian.
