ICSB Epididymal Harvest Kit

The ICSB Epi-Kit is an amazing opportunity for breeders and pet owners to preserve that special friend and stud dog that cannot be replaced. The sperm cells that are extracted, (when shipped and cared for properly) have an excellent chance of survival, even in situations where the dog has died traumatically or has been diagnosed with a terminal disease.

The staff at ICSB Van Isle have been extensively trained in this delicate and little known procedure by Prof Carrol Platz who exclusively researched and developed the procedure for success.

When you wish to ship the testes from an animal that is neutered, euthanized or has expired from an accident or diseases please call our office for prices and procedures that your vet should follow for optimum results.  Kits can be ordered  in advance to have on hand  if and when the need arises.
