Title of the Innovation: Sperm Function Kit
Brief About Innovation
Motility is one of the important functions of sperms, which enable them to reach to the site of fertilization and fertilize the ovum. But fast moving sperms are difficult to handle for performing many of the assisted reproductive techniques.
The present technology allows slowing down the sperm movement temporarily for various manipulations and restoration of sperm motility after incubation for one hour in the same test solution.
The process also helps to select stable sperms which are less prone to the process of oxidative stress. The composition has no adverse effect on morphology, hypo-osmotic swelling, nuclear condensation and viability of spermatozoa.
The composition developed for the purpose provides a synergistic effect not only for reducing the motility but also reversing the same after some time.
The composition opens up the possibility of using the test solution for intra cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) protocols as an alternative to polyvinyl pyrilodone (PVP) presently used.
It can be used for other sperm manipulation protocols too. The ingredients used are completely indigenous and no components are required to be imported for the purpose.
