Product Details
  • Used for semen centrifugation
  • For horse sperm pellet analysis
  • Allows easy visualization of sperm pellets
  • Produces less compacted pellets
  • For equine reproduction

Red Cushion is used for horse sperm pellet analysis. This cushion fluid of high density is used for semen centrifugation. It reduces damage from centrifugation through sperm damping over the Red Cushion on the bottom of the tube. It produces less compacted pellets with high sperm recovery rate due to the possibility of working with intensity and time of centrifugation above those used in conventional protocols. Because it has a reddish coloration, it allows easy visualization of the pellet and its removal. Red Cushion is for use during equine reproduction to help protect sperm during the centrifugation process.
