Frequently Asked Questions: 10% PVP in FertiCult Flushing medium

FAQ1: Is 10% PVP in FertiCult Flushing medium ready-to-use?
Yes, it is.

FAQ2: Why 10% PVP and not 7% PVP?
Not the percentage of PVP is important, but the viscosity. There are different kinds of PVP, which result in different amounts/percentages needed to obtain the optimal viscosity.

FAQ3: What if you would like to have a less viscous medium?

  • Place small drops (e.g. 5-10 µl) FertiCult Flushing medium in a dish and cover with FertiCult Mineral Oil.
  • Replace drop(s) with the PVP solution
  • Based on the characteristics of the sperm, you can decide to only partly replace the drop of FertiCult Flushing medium with PVP solution so that a less viscous medium drop is obtained
