Product features

  • Two versions are available which differ in cryoprotectant, milk and egg yolk content, thus taking into account the individual needs of different stallions and ejaculates
  • Spectrum Duo Red: Best combined with rapid cooling and freezing
  • Spectrum Duo Violet: Best combined with slow cooling and freezing
  • Spectrum Duo extenders consist of two components that can be easily blended into the finished product by adding egg yolk (final volume approx. 100 ml)
  • For a better microscopic image and a reliable CASA evaluation, we recommend centrifuging the extender and using only the supernatant for diluting the semen
  • Spectrum Duo provides the same results as the ready-to-use Spectrum extenders (no difference in both total and progressive motility)
