IMV R&D department developed a biological compound, called Bioactivator, which amplifies the biosynthesis of platelet-activating factors (PAFs). PAFs stimulate the motility of spermatozoa, promote ovum penetration, and ultimately improve fertility.
In 2018, IMV improved this molecule, newly named Bioactivator Ultra, which has the same properties as Bioactivator, along with a protective role.
To observe the protection during temperature fluctuations, the spermatozoa were stressed in different types of media during in vitro tests. The following protocol was used:
The same protocol was used for other semen samples, which were stressed at 25°C during 16 hours, instead of 10°C.
In this experiment, the result is the same: semen stored in NUTRIXcell Ultra is not impacted by storage during 16 hours at 25°C.
NUTRIXcell Ultra is a media developed to protect semen quality against environmental stress, such as temperature fluctuations.
