Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) 10% is a viscous solution that allows for easier sperm micromanipulation by slowing or decreasing the motility of sperm for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). PVP 10% has relatively more viscosity than PVP 7% and is recommended for use with high motility and healthy sperm. PVP solution yields greater control over fluid flow and prevents sticking in the ICSI pipette.
Contains human serum albumin (5 mg/mL) and reconstituted in isotonic HEPES-buffered HTF medium.
