Affiliate laboratories receive the following support from Select Breeders Services:
HANDS ON PERSONAL TRAINING
Employees from all affiliate laboratories are trained in semen processing and freezing by our experts at SBS’s 13,000sq ft. facility in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Our hands-on approach ensures that every doctor and technician is trained and comfortable following the meticulous SBS Quality Control safeguards. These safeguards ensure the best outcomes, every time.
We grant Affiliates access to detailed protocols, standardized forms, and proven record keeping systems. Our continuing education methods and standard operating procedures are setting the standards for the industry and will continue to raise the bar.
ACCESS TO PROPRIETARY SBS PRODUCTS
Innovation begins and ends with SBS. We have developed unique semen extenders and protocols that have been tested on thousands of stallions.
Quality Control is at the heart of the SBS difference. We are committed to raising the quality standards for frozen semen. Driven by technology and more than 30 years of experience, the SBS Quality Control Program is at the core of our commitment to providing quality frozen semen that will hold up to any third-party post thaw investigation. In addition to the post-thaw quality testing performed by the Affiliate Lab on every ejaculate frozen, SBS requires that two test straws from all test freezes and a minimum of 25% of all subsequent freezes are sent to the SBS regional headquarters for independent testing. This testing consists of computer assisted motility analysis, final sperm concentration and bacterial cultures to ensure product consistency and accurate reporting.
FROZEN SEMEN STORAGE AND DISTRIBUTION
SBS has the largest and most efficient frozen semen storage and distribution system in the world. Affiliates are offered the opportunity to utilize these facilities for both domestic and international semen storage and distribution. Affiliates can also take advantage of the international distribution program directly allowing the import and export of frozen semen between SBS affiliates.
The strength of the SBS Affiliate Program lies in the combined knowledge of our members and the continuing education of the network. Personnel from SBS Affiliate labs meet annually to share information and experiences, discuss protocols and policies, and set the course to drive the future of the industry.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Knowledge sharing is at the heart of the SBS Affiliate Program. Affiliates are included in multi-center collaborative research projects aimed at improving outcomes achieved with frozen semen.
We’re there when you need us. SBS Affiliates enjoy access to the top Theriogenologists and Reproductive Biologists in their fields. Our dedicated on-hand staff represent a devotion to the advancement of the equine frozen semen industry as a whole.
