MPTI has worked hard to develop a technology that makes breeding using artificial insemination more effective. GameteGuard® is an organic semen extender-additive developed by MPTI that protects the sperm cell membrane. This means sperm is kept healthy and more effective.
MPTI’s suite of products includes patented technologies to protect sperm from the damages of cooling, freezing and thawing. The damages that occur can result in lower pregnancy rates. Fertility is most affected by the quality of sperm, so protecting sperm cells results in a higher chance of offspring.Contact us now...
