Innovative complete immunoassay to assess semen quality in ram

The Ram 4MID® kit (Ref. 4VDX-18K7) is the first immunoassay that validates objectively semen quality by quantifying a protein biomarker named proAKAP4 in samples of ram semen. This ELISA kit is the 1st functional test to evaluate sperm quality.

The dosage of the proAKAP4 biomarker with the 4MID® kit, will bring you:

  • Objective information on semen quality
  • Qualification of each breeding male and their ejaculates
  • Pertinent parameter to improve sperm cryopreservation
  • A functional indicator correlated to fertility index

The concentration of the proAKAP4 biomarker is a good indicator of sperm quality and of how the spermatozoa can keep its motility high and efficient up to fecondation.
