Ship-Mate: Electronic Semen Shipping Flask
Ship-Mate will make a huge difference in your ability to ship chilled semen reliably. The traditional method of shipping chilled semen is by using a passive system. Ice packs in the shipping container cool the specimen, but there is no way to control the rate at that the specimen is cooled or the final temperature that it is cooled. The results are inconsistent and unreliable.
Ship-Mate controls both the cooling rate and final temperature of the specimen. Ship-Mate uses a double-walled stainless steel flask that is surrounded by ice packs inside an insulated foam shipping box. The ice packs alone would damage the specimen by cooling it too fast causing Cold Shock and also potentially freezing the specimen.
