I NTEGRATED L ABORATORY E NVIRONMENT records, through collection, semen evaluation, and semen processing, traceability is critical. The database is linked to specific identification tools to record and track your pre-determined procedures with respect to the semen production process. The software can be adapted to your specific requirements, if necessary. 3 SEMEN PACKAGING TRACEABILITY FREEZING & STORAGE TRACEABILITY Integrated with the IS4, a state of the art machine for filling, sealing and printing of the I.M.V. Technologies straw, continues the traceability of your collected semen. A barcode can be printed on the straws for further identification. When the semen packaging process is completed, the IS4 automatically sends the number of straws per sample collection. 4 The bar-coded straws can now be loaded into the Digitcool for freezing according to pre-set protocols. The Digitcool offers a “state of the art” method for straw freezing. Recorded in the database, is the batch code with the freezing curve, chamber curve, and inside straw curve. The potential for human error is reduced and the records are stored in the SMILE database. imv A complete 1 traceability 2 chain from collection to storage ! 3 W O R L D 4 L E A D E R I N R E P R O D U C T I O N B I O T E C H N O L O G I E S 13
