Sperm Maintenance Medium uses only 1 mL of medium per 3 mL of semen or sperm. This more efficient medium means lower costs per cycle of sperm cryopreservation, minimal dilution of low quality semen, and potentially fewer straws/vials per patient. Sperm Maintenance Medium has similar performance to Freezing Medium TYB, a TEST-yolk buffer based sperm cryopreservation medium, without containing egg yolk (Es-slami, 2009). The medium’s unique formulation contains ingredients, such as hypotaurine and ascorbic acid, that have been shown to protect against reactive oxygen species.
