Sperm Washing Medium — How many applications can I get out of your Sperm Washing Medium?
Based on the product insert, for a 2mL semen sample, about 4 to 6mL of media should be used the first time and 1 to 2mL should be added again later. Assuming that you will use a semen sample of 2mL, we could estimate 2 to 3 applications for the 12mL vial and 15 to 20 applications for the 100mL vial. It is important to note that there is a large amount of variation among the protocols labs use to process their samples. Even within the same lab, there are variations in the way individuals carry out the protocols. The number of applications can vary depending on the size of the sample, its viscosity, etc. The above numbers are merely an estimation.
