the simple freezing temperature control method for pig
semen by a small capacity straw using a Styrofoam
container and the bricerin equilibrium time were studied.
In the present study, using the simple equipment of a
Styrofoam container it was confirmed that the
cryopreservation of pig semen in a 0.5 ml straw was
possible by adjusting the distance of the straw from the
liquid nitrogen surface. In addition, since the simple
freezing method with a small capacity straw of 0.5 ml is
utilizable for in vitro fertilization or tubal
fertilization, it seems to be useful for the
conservation etc. of genetic resources.
