QuickTip® semen bags: safer bag technology for boar semen

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.
Minitube is celebrating its 50-year anniversary in 2020! Fifty years ago, Minitube was one founder and one idea. The idea was simple: do development differently and do it better. Since that day in 1970 Minitube has evolved to a global leader in assisted reproduction technologies with encompassing products and services from AI to in-vitro insemination.
