NEW SQA and QwikCheck Cleaning Instructions | Effective May 2014

Saturday, May 31, 2014
The SQA cleaning procedure has been updated for ease of maintenance and for system reliability. It was found that improper or excessive cleaning with more than one drop of cleaning fluid may impact the system over time. Please note that the new procedure differs from the previous version in the following three ways:

• Use of the 6” wooden electrostatic brush “long brush” is now STEP 1 and should be done DAILY.

• Use of the “blue dot cleaning paddle” is different, is STEP 2 and is performed WEEKLY (instead of daily)

• New cleaning kits will include the updated instructions and will have an outside label indicating a new kit.

Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics SQA-V Comparison Study

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Double-blind prospective study comparing two automated sperm analyzers versus manual semen assessment.

 

J. Lammers - C. Splingart - P. Barrière - M. Jean - T. Fréour 

 

Abstract
Purpose Despite controversy regarding its clinical value, male fertility investigation mainly relies on semen analysis. Even though reference guidelines are available, manual sperm analysis still suffers from analytical variability, thus questioning the interest of automated sperm analysis systems. The aim of this study is to compared automated computerized semen analysis systems (SQA-V GOLD and CASA CEROS) to the conventional manual method in terms of accuracy and precision. Methods We included 250 men in this double-blind prospective study. The SQA-V GOLD (Medical Electronic Systems) and CEROS, CASA system (Hamilton Thorne) were compared to the standard manual assessment based on the WHO 5th Edition. The main outcome measures were sperm concentration, total sperm number, total motility, progressive motility, non-progressive motility, morphology, motile sperm concentration (MSC) and progressively motile sperm concentration (PMSC) with the three methods.  Results Statistical analysis of the test results from the automated systems and the manual method demonstrated no significant differences for most of the semen parameters. The Spearman coefficients of rank correlation (rho) for CASA and the SQA-V GOLD automated systems vs. the manual method were: Sperm concentration (0.95 and 0.95), total sperm number (0.95 and 0.95), MSC (0.94 and 0.96) and PMSC (0.94 and 0.93) correspondingly. Concerning sperm morphology, both automated systems demonstrated high specificity (Sp) and negative predictive values (NPV), despite significantly different medians (CASA: 83.7% for Sp and 95.2% for NPV, SQA-V: 97.9 % for Sp and 92.5 %). The highest precision (lowest 95 % confidence interval for duplicate tests) for all semen variables was found in the SQA-V GOLD. Conclusions The advantages of using automated semen analysers are: Standardization, speed (lower turnaround time), precision, reduced potential for human error, automated data recording and less need for highly skilled professionals to run the systems. The disadvantages of using automated systems are: notably the problem with testing some atypical samples and the inability to perform an assessment of morphology abnormalities. Based on the results of this study, the SQA-V Gold demonstrated better agreement vs. the manual method. In conclusion, automated semen analyzers can be used for routine semen analysis providing rapid clinically acceptable results with higher precision, and positively impacting laboratory standardization.

Ariela Arabians Letter of Recommendation

Thursday, August 29, 2013
To All Breeders and Vets interested in the QwikCheck™Gold Equine Sperm Analyzer:

I am writing this letter to recommend the QwikCheck™ GOLD EQUINE semen analyzer produced by A-TECH (the veterinary division of Medical Electronic Systems). Ariella Arabians and A-Tech worked in partnership to develop the QwikCheck™ GOLD analyzer in 2012. We ran the alpha site testing right before the 2013 season and assisted in providing semen samples for the development of the algorithm. Based on the successful product development, the analyzer was used to test and provide cooled semen doses to our customers in the 2013 season.

 

I personally use the analyzer and find that it provides accurate and precise results. It reports sperm concentration, % motility, % progressive motility, % normal morphology, velocity and the number of sperm, progressive sperm and motile sperm per sample volume. We have used it extensively for setting up doses and found that, through the use of the system, we have been more efficient in the distribution and QC of cooled semen shipments. In addition, the label with the test results is effectively used to document the quality of the sample for our clients who can see it when they receive semen from us.

 

The QwikCheck™ GOLD Equine analyzer is easy to use. The screen flow is based on the input from the alpha trial conducted at Ariella Arabians and makes it very ‘user friendly’ from the field perspective. The screens lead you through every step of testing, dosing and quality control (testing Cooled and Extended samples).

 

A-TECH and Medical Electronic Systems are a professional, responsive and reliable company and we have an excellent and ongoing relationship with them. Please see the Ariella Arabian website at www.ariela-arabians.co.il where A-TECH is listed as one of our ‘friends’. We also have a featured article in the ‘news’ section of our website about our participation in the alpha site.

 

I highly recommend this product (and have told colleagues about it already). It removes ‘estimating’ from the dosing process. Today our standard is based on the number of Progressively Motile Sperm per dose. We can now confidently guarantee our clients an objective assessment of the semen quality that we ship to them. The instrument is also an effective means of monitoring the semen quantity and quality of our stallions. The raw semen test report is very detailed and allows us to learn about the stallion’s current repro status in less than two minutes.  

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the QwikCheck™Gold Equine semen analyzer.

Sincerely,

 

Chen Kedar
Breeding Manager
Ariela Arabians
