Sperm VitalStain 2 x 10 ml

Cat. No. SVS-010 Category:

Optimised one step staining technique for assessment of sperm motility and morphology.

One of the basic tools used in semen analysis, sperm vitality assessment is a key component of successful breeding. Sperm VitalStain, which contains both eosin and nigrosine, is part of Nidacon’s optimised sperm vitality assessment staining technique. Based on the principle that dead cells (i.e., those with a damaged plasma membrane) will absorb the eosin and exhibit a red stain. Nigrosine is used as a counterstain to facilitate visualization of the unstained (white) live cells.
