SpermBlue Staining

SpermBlue Staining /   SCA-SB-250

SpermBlue Staining / SCA-SB-250

  • Developed to stain all the components of the sperm (acrosome, head, midpiece and main piece of tail) differentially in different intensities of blue 
  • SpermBlue can be used for all species.
  • New improved formula, extremely simple, only involves one step, as fixation and staining are done at the same time
  • It works equally well for smears of “raw” semen as well as swim-up/Percoll/Pure Sperm gradient preparations using most culture media

FluoCount Florescent Staining /    SCA-FLUO-C

FluoCount Florescent Staining / SCA-FLUO-C

FluoCount Florescent Staining

  • Differentiates sperms from extender debris during the automatic analysis due to its affinity to the nucleic acid
  • Composed by a fluorescent dye and may be used in fluorescence microscopy
  • For the evaluation of sperm concentration and motility from fresh or unthawed semen samples
  • Intended for standard semen analysis in routine assessment

Prestained Morphology Slides

CellVU® Prestained Morphology Slides

  • Ready to use microscope slide coated with a combination of methylene blue and cresyl violet stains
  • Samples are applied directly to the slide and a coverslip is placed over the sample
  • One step process limits exposure to reagents and potentially harmful stains
  • Each slide contains a dried layer of stain that allows for rapid visualization and differential cell assessment from whole blood and body fluids such as CSF, and urine samples
  • Can also be used for WHO and Kruger strict morphology sperm assessment from undiluted semen

Sperm Blue Prestain Slides / GC-SB-50

  • Ready to use conventional microscope slides and isosmotic SpermBlue stain for morphology assessment 
  • Designed for use with automated system like SCA® or manually
  • Each slide enables the assessment of 2 sperm samples
  • Can also be used for WHO and Kruger strict morphology sperm assessment from undiluted semen
