Stallion Sperm Viability, as Measured by the Nucleocounter SP-100, Is Affected by Extender and Enhanced by Single Layer Centrifugation

Figure 3

Mean values for total motility (%) and progressive motility (%) for one stallion (Stallion I) (n=4). Note: SLC: Single Layer Centrifugation; I: INRA96; K: Kenney’s extender. Significant differences and trends towards significance between 0 hour and 24 hours within each treatment group are shown on the figure. Other significant differences were found as follows: for progressive motility between K uncentrifuged and K SLC at 24 hours (P<.05), between I uncentrifuged and I SLC at 24 hours (P<.001), and between K SLC and I SLC at 0 hour (P<.05); for total motility, between K uncentrifuged and K SLC at 24 hours (P<.05), and between I uncentrifuged and I SLC at 24 hours (P<.01). There were no differences between ejaculates except for total motility, uncentrifuged, I versus K at 0 hour.
