Resumen Introduccion El uso de las camaras de recuento condiciona los valores de concentracion y movilidad espermatica debido a su tipo de carga (capilaridad o desplazamiento de la gota) y a la altura que presenten. Recientemente, se han introducido nuevas camaras, tanto desechables (ISAS ® D4C) como reusables (Spermtrack ® ) con diversas alturas en cada caso. Objetivo El objetivo del presente trabajo es validar su uso, analizando diversos parametros espermaticos con un sistema CASA, el ISASv1… Expand
Standardization of sperm motility analysis by using CASA-Mot for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), European eel (Anguilla anguilla) and Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii)
This study presents the validation of sperm motility assessment using a CASA-Mot system for three endangered diadromous fish species: European eel, Atlantic salmon and sturgeon. Expand
Kinematics and subpopulations' structure definition of blue fox (Alopex lagopus) sperm motility using the ISAS® V1 CASA system.
To advance the knowledge of function of fox spermatozoa, five samples were obtained by masturbation, in the breeding season, using ISAS® v1 system, and the presence of subpopulations in blue fox semen was analysed. Expand
Dog sperm swimming parameters analysed by computer‐assisted semen analysis of motility reveal major breed differences
Future workers on dog spermatozoa should bear in mind major differences between breeds and realize that results cannot be extrapolated from one to another, as dogs may represent a good model to examine changes in reproductive parameters associated with selection processes. Expand
Standardization of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) sperm motility evaluation by CASA software.
Some protocol variables of sperm analysis by computer-assisted sperm analysis software can affect the measurement of eel sperm quality parameters, and should be considered before directly comparing results obtained by different laboratories. Expand
CASA-Mot technology: how results are affected by the frame rate and counting chamber.
It is shown that the optimal combination of frame rate and counting chamber type and depth should be defined for each species and experimental condition in order to obtain reliable results. Expand
Combined effect of type and capture area of counting chamber and diluent on Holstein bull sperm kinematics
The capture area inside the chambers leads to significant changes in sperm kinematic parameters and different dilution media introduce considerable differences in the motility patterns, which is necessary to optimise sampling methods and specific set‐ups to be used with CASA‐Mot technology. Expand
Combined effects of type and depth of counting chamber, and rate of image frame capture, on bull sperm motility and kinematics.
Differences among breeds in the present study indicate conditions for sperm analyses should include specific equipment calibrations for each breed, and contribute to development of more precise conditions for assessments of bull sperm quality taking into account breed differences. Expand
Effect of chamber characteristics, loading and analysis time on motility and kinetic variables analysed with the CASA-mot system in goat sperm.
There were no significant differences in total sperm motility between different chamber depths, however, use of the 20μm-chambers resulted in greater sperm progressive motility rate, VSL and LIN, and less VCL and VAP than chambers with a lesser depth. Expand
Optimal frame rate when there were stallion sperm motility evaluations and determinations for kinematic variables using CASA-Mot analysis in different counting chambers.
Sperm VCL was determined at frame rates of 25-250 f/s in three types of counting chambers used for CASA-Mot determinations of stallion sperm motility and there was a greater curvilinear velocity (VCL) than with capillary loaded chambers. Expand


Comparison of FACSCount AF system, Improved Neubauer hemocytometer, Corning 254 photometer, SpermVision, UltiMate and NucleoCounter SP-100 for determination of sperm concentration of boar semen.
It was clear that percentage difference between instruments depended on sperm concentration, and agreement was highest between SpermVision and HEMO for dilute semen, but for concentrated semen, agreement was lowest between SP-100 and H EMO. Expand
Particle distribution in low-volume capillary-loaded chambers.
Differences between CASA results and hemacytometry are established, in large part, due to the Segre-Silberberg effect, which occurs during Poiseuille flow in high-gradient fluid flow in thin capillary-loaded slides. Expand
Delay in the application of the cover glass is a potential source of error with the Makler Counting Chamber.
There was a progressive increase in sperm concentration with a longer delay in applying the cover glass when sperm was suspended in either seminal plasma or culture medium. Expand
Comparison of Three Sperm-Counting Methods for the Determination of Sperm Concentration in Human Semen and Sperm Suspensions
The Cell-VU method of sperm counting provided the best accuracy and precision among the 3 methods studied and may represent a better worldwide “gold standard” for sperm counts than the current hemacytometer method. Expand
Lack of compliance by UK andrology laboratories with World Health Organization recommendations for sperm morphology assessment.
There is an urgent need for education and training initiatives to encourage laboratories to become compliant with current WHO guidelines for sperm morphology assessment. Expand
Capillary-loaded particle fluid dynamics: effect on estimation of sperm concentration.
Assessment of chamber flow dynamics, flow uniformity, inflow cell velocity, and results of concentration measurements under different flow conditions for latex bead and porcine and human sperm suspensions provided further support that hemacytometry, when performed properly, remains the gold standard. Expand
Discrepancies in the determination of sperm concentration using Bürker-Türk, Thoma and Makler counting chambers.
It is concluded that duplicate counts by at least two technicians is recommended to achieve high precision but, that particular caution should be exerted with regard to the precision and accuracy of the used counting device. Expand
Evaluating the accuracy of different sperm counting chambers by performing strict counts of photographed beads
A technique that combined loading latex beads from identical stock into various chambers, proper covering of the tested samples and strict counting of photographed beads provided precise and reproducible results. Expand
The Leja chambers for both manual and the computer-assisted sperm concentration determinations provided consistent and accurate data on sperm concentration. Expand
