1970: The birth of Minitube

Let´s go back 50 years in time. The technique of artificial insemination of farm animals was still in its infancy. Driven by the emerging opportunities and dissatisfied with the existing range of products on the market, Dr. Ludwig Simmet developed a novel technique for deep-freezing bull semen.

Spectrum: high pregnancy rates with frozen-thawed stallion semen

The SBS CryoSystem consists of a range of freezing extenders, allowing the clinician to identify the best extender and complementary freezing protocol for each individual stallion. This results in more successfully frozen ejaculates, overall higher quality of frozen semen and more commercial doses per ejaculate.
