Proiser R+D Systems. Análisis de esperma

Proiser, a global sperm analysis solutions company

Proiser R+D is the name of one of the leading companies in the sector of tailor-made solutions for the analysis of sperm samples in Spain. It is an entity founded in 2004 by two doctors: Carles Soler (Professor at the University of Valencia) and Francisco Blasco (Computer Engineer), who until that time had been working together to develop proposals for other companies. And that at the time they considered it appropriate to launch their own project with which to be able to materialize high quality personal proposals.

If you don’t already know them, we have written this article with which we want to approach it and the products they develop.

Proiser R+D: Who they are and what they do

Proiser R+D is a company whose activity is focused on the research and development of automated systems for the diagnosis and automatic analysis of semen samples.

Its main product line is the ISAS (Integrated Semen Analysis System) family, consisting of CASA (Compuert Assisted Semen Analysis) systems, reusable and disposable cell counting chambers, as well as all the tools needed for routine andrology laboratory analysis.

For those who don’t know, ISAS software is the most advanced and cutting-edge solution for automatic semen analysis in this field. In fact, it is a system that is capable of analyzing more than 2.000 cells per field, and more than 80.000 sperm per analysis. It is also able to evaluate the following parameters: Sperm motility, sperm concentration, sperm morphology and other similar characteristics of semen samples at the same time.

It is a versatile and versatile system. Therefore, do not matter the nature of the sample on which you work. It does the same if the person needs to obtain the balanced and customized dose calculation for animal production, or if, on the contrary, he or she is looking for a complete seminal clinical analysis. And it’s because, both cases, the ISAS system provides it.

Proiser: sperm analysis products

The main products offered by the company Proiser are the following:

  • ISAS v1, which has been developed as a system that brings together all the tools necessary to be used in both the clinical and research setting. Its fields of application are: Human and veterinary clinical, scientific research, livestock production as well as pharmaceutical and, of course, reproductive toxicology.
  • ISASLab, which allows seminal reviews in the ordinary circumstances of a laboratory for the development of its analyzes, both for the determination of seminal quality, and for the monitoring of samples during processing in assisted reproduction techniques.
  • ISASPSUs, which allows sperm to be recognized by the detection of the tail. For this purpose, a system is proposed in which sperm is digitally “washed” by the development of a morphological analysis. This allows mobility, concentration and morphology, which are analyzed at the same time.
  • SPERMTRACK, which following the semen drop displacement procedure, eliminates most of the disadvantages of the less efficient products found in this market area. A uniquely designed product that enables and enhances use in the microscope, as well as cleaning, handling and storing samples at all times and in the laboratory.

So if you’re looking for quality in the analysis of your semen samples, it’s best to choose Proiser products. And it’s only here you’ll be able to find the lab tools that can offer you the solution to exactly what you need. Always with high quality and completely guaranteed.

Sperm quality and subpopulation behavior.

The quality of sperm in a semen sample does not depend, as previously thought, on the individual quality of sperm samples. On the contrary, it depends on the joint action of sperm subpopulations.

 

This conclusion, which is based on a clear research premise, has been made possible by the work of researchers from the University of Valencia and the PROISER Company.

 

Sperm quality: A job of many years

The study on sperm behavior and sperm quality in different samples has been the main objective of the Department of Cell Biology, Functional and Physical Anthropology of the University of Valencia for several decades. A line of research that has been supported by the Valencian company PROISER, dedicated to the diagnosis of semen samples and which has developed revolutionary software to reveal parameters of sperm samples and give answers on sperm morphometry.

Sperm morphology is a line of study and work that is based on the correct identification of sperm involved in the reproduction function of some internal fertilization species.

An area of work in which the members of the research team of the University of Valencia raised the need to check the starting point of many of the work that had been carried out in the laboratories. Works that claimed that the success of fertilization depended on the health of a sperm and its individual ability.

However, thanks to the trials carried out by the professionals of the University of Valencia, it was possible to verify that the way sperm behave in a reproduction process is mainly due to the joint action of them and the coordination they develop with each other.

Hence the main element of work in internal in Vitro fertilization processes is no longer a single sperm, but a sample of them.

The findings of this study revolutionized the field of assisted reproduction by offering answers and solutions around male fertility with internal fertilization.

 

Reference in the field of reproduction

With this new work, which has been echoed by numerous scientific journals, a change in assisted reproduction strategy has been defined, both in its veterinary and human applications. What has made both the University of Valencia and the company PROISER a reference for the rest of the laboratories and entities that carry out their work in this field.

This new milestone adds to other PROISER findings in the same area. This private entity has been developing computer programs and applications for more than a decade that favor successful seminal analysis. In fact, it is noted as a leading company in the development of different systems of sperm analysis that in the professional field are known as “Computer Assisted Semen Analysis“. A quantification system that has full implementation today.

Reusable counting chamber of sperm samples

When we work with sperm samples we need top quality products. Systems and work supplements like those we offer in Proiser, where you will be able to acquire all kinds of tools and substances that you require for your daily work. One of the most popular is our seminal counting chamber. A product that is called Spermtrack and that allows to alleviate the workload of laboratories.

To get to know it, in Proiser we have written this article with which we want to explain its main characteristics and its operation.

Seminal counting chamber: Spermtrack

Spermtrack is the name of a new counting chamber that has launched the ISAS brand, one of the most prestigious in the scientific field.

Thank you to this new camera, seminal analysis is developed as an activity with a new tool that substantially improves pre-existing counting chambers.

And is that following the semen drop-shifting procedure, Spermtrack eliminates most of the disadvantages presented by the less efficient products found on the market.

The Spermtrack design makes it easy to use under the microscope and also the cleaning, handling and storage actions that require proper use.

Advantages of using Spermtrack

To facilitate its handling, Spermtrack can be customized with different colors. Allowing even recording a name at the bottom of the camera. So we avoid mistakes or have to repeat tests because samples have been mixed.

To adapt to all the needs and activities around this activity, Spermtrack is available in two models: one of 10 and one of 20 microns. In the first case, it is a 10 μm depth chamber for traditional human clinical analysis. On the second model, it should be noted that it is a 20 μm  chamber, which follows the latest recommendations from the 2010 WHO Laboratory Manual, while expanding its use for veterinary purposes, due to increased natural freedom of movement of sperm cells.

Another advantage offered by the use of this camera is its traceability as far as its daily application is concerned is that it has independent series numbers on the lid and in the camera, allowing for complete traceability according to ISO 13485 standards. A guarantee for those who work with them.
It should be noted, too, that Spermtrack is thinner than other similar products. This allows the microscope capacitor light to reach the sample much more focused, improving optical quality and preventing the generation of common visual artifacts that appear on other similar devices. All of this makes it easier for people who manipulate them to get their results more reliably.
So, if you want your lab to be more competitive when it comes to sperm sample work, don’t hesitate and purchase these reusable counting chambers. You will be able to find them on our website, in the tab that we dedicate to the products that relate to the seminal analysis. Here, in addition, you will be able to get more data about it, and even see photographs of the product. Which will allow you to get a visual idea of what it’s like and how you work with it.
