cochettes or the SEMBAGTM with approximately 5 billion cells per dose. Fresh
Terminal or Maternal Line semen is extended to approximately 4 billion cells
per dose. Life expectancy, when properly stored and rotated, is 5 to 6 days
from collection. Check semen storage directions upon arrival. Motility of
cells will be greatly reduced in the extender, but worldwide studies verify
greater fertility and litter sizes. Check out page 3 for information about
our delivery routes.
Semen is now available in the IMV Cochette individual bag system, tubes, or
bottles. Semen is still available from IBS in the SEMBAGTM.
