Studies on the biochemistry of cock semen. 3. Density measurements of semen

Studies on the biochemistry of cock semen. 3. Density measurements of semen

S African Jour Agric Sci 1(3): 289-292

No correlation was found to exist between hemocytometer counts of sperm and the optical density measurements of whole cock semen, but a positive correlation was found to exist for washed cock semen. It is postulated-that this discrepancy is due to the fact that semen is contaminated by fecal restants or other cloacal excretions during the ejaculatory period. Optical density measurements appear to give more reproducible results than hemocytometer counts.
