Liquid concentrate extender for short-time preservation of boar semen

Summary

An old Czech animal breeding institute has developed a liquid form of an extender concentrate for the dilution and preservation of boar semen that is primarily intended to facilitate and simplify its preparation compared with present extenders that are predominantly in powder form. The client looks for companies breeding pigs and/ or a partner dealing with boar semen usage. Co-operation should be based on a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a license agreement.

Partner sought

The client looks for companies dealing with pigs breeding, farm supply stores and companies working with pig breeding mainly in countries where pigs are eaten. Co-operation should be based on a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a licence agreement.

Description

A liquid form of a concentrate for the dilution and preservation of boar semen should assure first of all easy and simple preparation for insemination of sows. At present mostly only powder diluted solution is used, which is complicated to prepare and takes longer time. The Czech animal breeding institute has developed a liquid form of an extender concentrate for the dilution and preservation of boar semen. The dilute solution can be stored in a plastic bottle for up to 4 months, and individual doses can have a shelf-life up 2-3 days as well as being faster to prepare. The client is looking for companies in the pig breeding sector interested in a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a license agreement. The usage could also be interesting for companies that produce boar semen concentrates. Of course, these potential partners should have a connection to farmers, who will finally use the solution. The company in the case of commercial agreement with technical assistance - in co-operation with the local partner - will deliver the solution, mix the concentrate and train staff. Commercial agreement with technical assistance includes not only the possibility of the demonstration of the preparation and usage of the concentrate but also gaining technical documentation. It is expected that the partner who invests in the commercial agreement with technical assistance will use the concentrate for pigs breeding. The technology is offered on the basis of a license agreement. The subject of the licensing agreement will be a detailed know-how for manufacturing boar semen concentrate as well as the process of usage. The desired outcome of the international partnership will be a possibility to gain a technology that makes breeding of pigs more simple, could be used longer and the usage is quick and easy.

Advantages and innovations

The manipulation is easy and save and as the preparation of standard powder diluted solution takes about 45 minutes there are about 32 minutes time savings as the preparation of the diluted liquid solution from the concentrate takes 10 minutes only. Liquid slightly yellowed concentrate of extender is 5 times more concentrated. For the production of insemination doses in the optimal dilution ratio of 1 part of semen + 2 parts of extender. Usability of the insemination doses is 2-3 days from the date of their production.
