Goat 4MID® Kit (proAKAP4 marker)

Reference: : 4VDX-18K9

The Goat 4MID® Kit (Ref. 4BDX-18K9) is complete immunoassay to quantify proAKAP4 in sperm samples as a biomarker of sperm quality in bucks.

Data sheet




Goat proAKAP4 (all breeds)

Analytical range

0 to 150 ng

Sample type

Fresh, chilled and frozen semen / isolated spermatozoa

More info

A robust testing kit to assess semen quality and male fertility in goat breeds. 

The Goat 4MID® Kit (Ref. 4VDX-18K9) contains all reagents and buffers required for the quantification of proAKAP4 protein in buck semen. 

This ELISA Kit is the 1st functional test to evaluate sperm quality and male fertility in bucks (all breeds)

The concentration of the proAKAP4 protein is a good indicator of sperm quality and of how the spermatozoa can keep its motility high and efficient  overtimes (Sergeant et al., 2019 ; Bastan and Akcay, 2021).

proAKAP4 values

High concentrations of proAKAP4 help select buck semen with long lasting motility and are indicative of good spermatogenesis, giving more mature, more “normal’ spermatozoa and less tail abnormalities ratio in semen samples (Sergeant et al., 2019 ; Bastan and Akcay, 2021).
