All shipments of E-Z Freezin® CryoMax™ Extenders include certification of production using eggs that are produced by a flock that is certified Specific Pathogen Free. The flock is certified free of the following pathogens: Avian Adenovirus Group I, Avian Adenovirus Group II (HEV), Avian Adenovirus Group III (EDS), Avian Encephalomyelitis, Avian Influenza (Type A), Avian Reovirus, Fowl Pox, Infectious Bronchitis-Ark., Infectious Bronchitis-Conn., Infectious Bronchitis-JMK, Infectious Bronchitis-Mass., Infectious Bursal Disease, Infectious Laryngotracheitis, Lymphoid Leukosis (A, B), Lymphoid Leukosis Viruses, Marek's Disease (Serotypes 1,2,3), Mycoplasma gallisepticum, Mycoplasma synoviae, Newcastle Disease, Reticuloendotheliosis Virus, Salmonella enterica seruvari, Pullorum and Gallinarum, and Salmonella.

Research at the Colorado State University has determined that thawing during shipment and subsequent refreezing does not adversely affect this product and have decided to have their E-Z Freezin® Cryomax™ Extenders shipped using more economical services during the cooler months of the year.

 Each E-Z Freezin® lot is evaluated by the CSU to ensure a superior product.

A series of studies were performed at the Equine Reproduction Laboratory, Colorado State University to compare commercial extenders for cryopreservation of stallion semen. Three freezing extenders contained a combination of glycerol and an amide as cryoprotectants (BotuCrio®, CryoMax™ LE and CryoMax™ MFR5), while two freezing extenders utilized glycerol as the only cryoprotectant (LE, MFR5).

Study 1. Semen was collected from a total of 12 different stallions. Aliquots of each ejaculate were diluted in one of five different extenders, loaded into 0.5 ml straws, cooled to 5 to 8° C over a 30 to 60 minute period and subsequently cryopreserved. One representative straw from each extender for every stallion was thawed in a 37° C water bath for 30 seconds. The thawed sperm was allowed to warm for 10 minutes and then evaluated for total and progressive motility using a computer assisted semen analysis (CASA) system. The highest average post-thaw motility was noted for the CryoMax™ LE extender (Table 1).

Study 2. Semen was collected from 30 different stallions. Aliquots of each ejaculate were diluted in one of four commercial extenders, loaded into 0.5 ml straws, cooled to 5 to 8° C and cryopreserved. One straw from each extender for every stallion was thawed in a 37° C water bath for 30 seconds. The thawed sperm was allowed to warm for 10 minutes and then evaluated for total and progressive motility using a CASA system. Again, the highest average post-thaw motility was noted for the CryoMax LE and CryoMax MFR5 extenders (Table 2).

Summary. Freezing extenders containing a combination of glycerol and amide cryoprotectants yielded better post-thaw sperm motility than extenders containing glycerol alone. CryoMax LE extender yielded a higher post-thaw total motility when directly compared to BotuCrio® extender.
