More info

Innovative complete immunoassay to assess semen quality in camelid sperm.     

The Camel 4MID® Kit (Ref. 4VDX-19K11) contains all reagents and buffers required for the quantification of proAKAP4 protein in sperm of camelids (all breeds).

This ELISA Kit is the 1st functional test to evaluate sperm quality in camelids.

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 up to fecundation (Sergeant et al., 2019 ; Malo et al. 2021)

proAKAP4 values

High concentrations of proAKAP4 help select 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 ; Malo et al. 2031 ; Bastan et Askay, 2021).
