    For cryoprotection of human sperm without the use of proteins

    CryoSperm™ from ORIGIO is for freezing of human spermatozoa and is developed to maximize sperm survival and to maintain DNA integrity and function after cryopreservation.

    CryoSperm™ is a ready-to-use, HSA-free sperm freezing medium using a blend of glycerol and raffinose as cryoprotectants. The medium is free of any proteins and components of animal origin

    • L-Glutamine is added to provides energy nutrition for the spermatozoa, to improve the post thaw total and progressive motility and velocity as well as the fertilizing ability of spermatozoa.1

    • Glycine is added to improve the post-thaw sperm motility, membrane and acrosome integrity.2

    • Taurine is an important antioxidant added to prevent the formation of reactive oxygen species and reduce DNA damage.3
