More info

The Dog 4MID® Kit (Ref.4VDX-18K5BB) is the format of the Dog 4MID kit that allows to run 1 or 2 tests per strip.

This innovative testing kit predicts long lasting semen motility, quality and male fertility. 

The Dog 4MID® Kit validates objectively semen  quality by quantifying a protein biomarker named proAKAP4 in dog semen.

An innovative approach that brings semen analysis to the next level! 

This format BB of the Dog 4MID Kit (ref. 4VDX-18K5BB) allows from 12 to 24 analysis per kit.

This testing kit is the 1st functional test to evaluate sperm quality in dogs (all breeds).

The dosage of the proAKAP4 concentration with the Dog 4MID® Kit - format BB allows :

  • Qualification of male ejaculates before and after cryopreservation
  • Qualification of each breeding male
  • Selection of the best semen for cryopreservation
  • Selection of semen with long lasting motility and functionality at post-thaw
  • Selection of semen with more mature, normal and less-tail abnormalities (indicator of good quality spermatogenesis 
  • Selection of best extender for semen preservation

The concentration of the proAKAP4 marker is an objective indicator of sperm quality and of how the spermatozoa can keep its motility high and efficient overtimes (Sergeant et al. 2019 ; Bastan and Akay, 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 bull semen samples (Bastan and Akcay, 2021).
