BotuTurbo 100 ml
A Semen Extender based on skimmed milk with the addition of Pentoxifylline.
BotuTurbo has been developed to improve motility of slow-moving sperm. It does this by inhibiting phosphodiesterase by increasing the level of APMc responsible for the control of ATP production. Ideal for fresh insemination or cooled semen transport at 5°C only. BotuTurbo is suitable for stallions with low spermatic motility and for reinforcement breeding (Thoroughbred).
How to prepare:
Add all the content of this packet in 100 mL of sterile water and shake very well.
Extend 1:1 (V/V) wait 15 minutes for insemination with non cooled semen.
Use dilutions of 30 to 50 million/ml for cooled transport. Extend 1:1 (v/v and wait 15 minutes for an insemination with non-cooled semen. In case of samples requiring centrifugation before cooled transport, resuspend the sperm at a rate of between 30 to 50 million/ml.
Contains Penicillin K 1 g/l and Gentamicine 1 g/l.
Skimmed milk powder UHT sterilized, sugars, amino acids, antioxidants, pentoxifylline and excipients.
