Minitube Research and Development

We need detailed knowledge of reproductive physiology in order to ensure that Minitube customers are successful with their work using assisted reproduction technology. For this reason, at Minitube veterinarians, biologists and animal-scientists are in charge of research, product development and consulting with our customers.

The technical demands of semen and embryo processing and preservation also require knowledge and expertise in other fields, such as electronics, sensor technology, mechanics, chemistry, cryobiology and many others. Minitube has a first-class team of scientists, researchers and engineers dealing with basic and applied research, product development and quality assurance.

All around the globe our scientists cooperate closely with leading AI centres, universities and institutions to increase know-how and develop AI technologies. Together, they have the knowledge and experience to provide you the best possible results.
