Apoptotic cell removal
- Improve quality of sperm preparations
- Obtain desired population within 30 minutes
- Proven technology for optimal results
The presence of apoptotic cells in sperm preparations for assisted reproduction is known to decrease specimen quality. Unfortunately, commonly used techniques for preparing sperm may not remove apoptotic spermatozoa with the required specificity.
Annexin V MicroBeads in combination with the MACS® Technology are used to selectively remove apoptotic spermatozoa from sperm preparations. Even early apoptotic spermatozoa with an intact cellular membrane are efficiently depleted, to yield spermatozoa fractions for use in subsequent operations in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).
