Interactive Illumination Check

Animal Breeders II software features the unique color-coded Illumination Check to optimize identification of the sperm head and sperm tail. This feature removes any guess work in setting the illumination and promotes consistency between all users. When the microscope illumination is set correctly, the sperm heads will show a blue color and tails will be red.

Analysis Results

Real-time Updating

Analysis and Dosing results are updated in real-time as each field is added to the analysis. Data in the Results panel on the right side of the screen reflect the entire population of cells analyzed.

Full Field Playback

Selecting a thumbnail image from the gallery opens the captured video. The video may be replayed in full or you may scroll through frame by frame. The results along the left side of the image represent only the analysis data of selected field. The color-overlays on the playback image and the results may be turned on or off.

Zoom Cell Playback

Selecting a track from the playback image opens up a zoomed image of the cell. The Kinematic Measures shown on the left are relative only to the selected track. The video may be played or scrolled through frame by frame. You may jump to a specific frame by selecting a point on the track or the associated data points. Both motile and static cells may be selected.

Cell Morphometry

The software also provides cell morphometry values, including head length, width, perimeter and area, plus identification of both distal and proximal droplets, coiled tails, and bent tails. On the full screen playback, droplets are identified with an orange circle.

Dose Calculation

Animal Breeders II Software allows calculation of dose based on total, motile or progressive sperm. Values are automatically recalculated based on the selected option. You may also select to adjust the dose calculations based on percentage of sperm designated with Normal morphometry.

Report Viewer

The Animal Breeders II software includes the ability to view custom designed reports. The system will come with several pre-designed reports.

Report Designer

The optional Report Designer permits customization of the pre-designed forms or creation of entirely new forms. The user-friendly, “drag and drop” designer gives you complete control over the look and content of the report. Any input or output data may be added to the report. Free-form fields also allow the inclusion of non-analysis data such as contact information or company logo.
