Minitube TechDays: Varied program and lively exchange

On May 10th and 11th, everything at Minitube revolved around professional boar semen production. As part of the Minitube TechDays, a varied program including Bavarian conviviality and culinary delights, awaited more than 100 international participants (live and virtual). 

The first day was filled with specialist lectures by well-known industry experts. Dr. Martin Schulze (IFN Schönow) reported on new research results on boar semen transport. Eva Schilling (BUS) gave insight into important hygiene aspects of sperm production. What needs to be considered when training young boars and preparing boars for semen collection, is what Dr. Michael Kleve-Feld (PIC) reported about. Dr. Anne Luther (University of Veterinary Medicine, Hanover) and PhD Rudolf Großfeld (Minitüb GmbH) highlighted important aspects concerning the selection and approval of extenders, as well as sperm compatibility tests.

On Day 2, around 40 on-site participants experienced practice-oriented workshops on the topics of sperm analysis, laboratory management, and quality assurance. A tour of the Minitube premises in Tiefenbach, Germany, rounded off the program for the participants.

Dr. Christian Simmet, CEO of Minitube International AG, was delighted to finally be able to personally welcome our customers and partners back to our premises and experience an exciting and informative exchange.

A big thank you to all participants for their dedicated engagement!
