Semen Analyser

Thanks for funding from Innovate UK, RAFT have developed a new, accurate and cost-effective analysis system for fresh and frozen semen to improve fertility outcomes on farm. This new service is called SemenRate. Using the innovative technologies of CASA (Computer Automated Semen Analysis) and flow cytometry, and a simple to use customer service package including easy to read reports, SemenRate aims to improve the way that semen quality is understood and managed on farm. RAFT are part of a 7 country European ring-test system to benchmark and audit results and are also working with Edinburgh University to take the SemenRate concept even further to help productivity and analysis of this most important factor in on-farm fertility.
