10% PVP in FertiCultTM Flushing medium is a viscous medium containing polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) used for sperm preparation for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). These procedures require the capture of individual sperm cells in a glass pipette for injection into the oocyte and this is facilitated by first immobilizing the sperm by placing them in a viscous medium like 10% PVP in FertiCultTM Flushing medium prior to nicking the tail to immobilize sperm completely.
10% PVP in FertiCultTM Flushing medium is ready-to-use.
