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.

Thrumorph: the new technique of observing sperm morphology

Trumorph is the name of a technique that is presented as the definitive mode of work in terms of observation of sperm morphology.

A system with which you will be able to obtain reliable data with which to carry out your research on sperm samples, in the best possible way. Who your lab, using this system, will be able to be more competitive and be able to respond to the needs of users faster than is usually done.

In order to know this system, its operation and advantages, we have written this article in which we want to develop a little its concept and philosophy.

Trumorph: what is it and what advantages it offers in the observation of sperm morphology.

Trumorph is a system that allows us to analyze the morphology of sperm from a semen sample of a person or animal. So thanks to it we can know all the data we need to work with sperm samples.
To achieve this, Trumorph comprises a device and a 40x/60 PH (-) lens. So, after placing a drop between the carrier and the conventional cover, the device raises the sample temperature to 45 degrees Celsius for 5 seconds, applying a slight pressure. This allows cells to be immobilized and easier to observe in the optical microscope. Which allows you to carry out your study without any problem more quickly because thanks to this system we have prepared the sample in just a few seconds.

What saves key time for this activity, as the shorter process of preparing sperm samples usually takes about 2 hours.

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.

PROISER Fertility studies

Proiser develops fertility studies in freshwater fish

Proiser together with the University of Valencia develop fertility studies in sperm samples from humans and animals, and have obtained results in freshwater fish that could be useful to protect endangered species such as salt salmon.

Proiser is the name of a Valencian company whose work is carried out in the research and development of automated systems of diagnosis and automatic semen analysis.

Its origin is located in 2004, when Dr. Carles Soler (Professor of the University of Valencia in the field of Cell Biology, Functional Biology and Physical Anthropology), and computer engineer Francisco Blasco (Computer Engineer) join to develop semen analysis systems.

Proiser‘s main product line is the ISAS (Integrated Semen Analysis System) family, composed of CASA (Compuert Assisted Semen Analysis) systems, reusable and disposable cell counting chambers, and all the tools needed to perform numerous routine andrology lab analyses. Hence this company is at the forefront of what is going on in this field of biology and the environment.
The ISAS software used by Proiser is, today, the most advanced and cutting-edge solution to perform the automatic analysis of all types of semen. In fact, it is capable of analyzing more than 2000 cells per field, and more than 80,000 sperm by analysis. A job that will allow you to evaluate sperm mobility, sperm concentration, sperm morphology and other similar characteristics at the same time.

Fertility studies. Proiser products.

Currently, Proiser has a wide range of products that allow the correct manipulation, study and analysis of semen of different animals (including humans).

In addition, it develops its own lines of research such as the one that focuses its attention on the fertility of freshwater fish.

In this context, professionals from Proiser and the University of Valencia have already published results around sperm quality studies in humans and animals; as well as the results that have been obtained in freshwater fish, made with their own technique.

Particularly relevant have been its conclusions as far as salt salmon are concerned, a very important species at a commercial level and which has come to conclude, for example, that genetic-environmental interactions can be an important factor in the reproductive competition of male individuals of this species.
To carry out this work, Proiser has used a technique of his own with which they have been able to study sperm kinetics, thus identifying the different sub-populations of sperm that exist.
This work is part of Horizon 2020’s IMPRESS-Marie Sklodowska-Curie Program. A European programme that has allowed, for example, the experimental part to have been developed at the National Conservatory of Salmon Salar in the French town of Chanteuges.

This line of research highlights the important contribution of the Integrated Semen Analysis System (ISAS) in the study of different parameters of semen samples such as concentration, motility, percentage of progressives or different kinetic parameters and their use for scientific advancement in areas such as clinics, humans and veterinarians, scientific research, toxicology or livestock production among others.

Isaspsus analisis s

Isaspsus, to analyse Swine Semen

Artificial animal insemination currently has effective methods that multiply the chances of new members developing. One of them is the Isaspsus method, with the analysis of the semen of pigs is not only a simple act but allows to obtain a lot of data about their quality and possibilities of reproduction.

isaspsus

CASA SYSTEM ( Sperm Analyzers),  Isaspsus Method for swine semen

 Isaspsus Method

 Isaspsus  Method to analyze swine semen,  is a quiality meassuring system with which you want to know its composition and calibrate its quality before being used in the insemination processes of females. 

This system is based on a new concept with which sperm selection is carried out. A methodology based on simultaneous analysis of mobility and cell-by-cell morphology. And all of this analyzing thousands of sperm per second.

The parameters that allow to identify and know the Isaspsus method are the following:

  • The total number of sperm (per milliliter and per ejaculate).
  • The progressive movement of all of them (per milliliter and by ejaculate).
  • The morphology of the sperm tail (per milliliter and by ejaculate).
  • Total useful sperm (per milliliter, by ejaculate and per dose).
  • Tail abnormalities.
  • Cytoplasmic drops.

 

 

This method allows seminal dose production to be significantly increased by up to 40%. However, it is not the only advantage as it presents many others such as the following:

  • Calculate precise doses that we need in each case.
  • Develop real-time, non-dying morphometry detection.
  • Be able to recognize cytoplasmic drops.
  • Develop tail analysis
  • Definition of the useful sperm in each sample.
  • We can save images and results to the database we handle.
  • We can repeat the function every day, every month, or annually; and even do it on samples of the same animal
  • We can get reports in Excel to visualize the data more clearly.
