What Is Offered?

  • Transvaginal Oocyte Aspiration (TVA) for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI has become an invaluable tool for overcoming fertility issues in sub-fertile mares and stallions. The combination of TVA and ICSI procedures has gained traction and become popular within the sport horse community.


· Produce offspring with limited interruption to the mare’s training and competition schedule by transferring embryos to the uterus of a recipient mare or frozen for future use.

· On the stallion side, ICSI can also maximize limited reserves of frozen semen because only a single sperm cell is selected and injected.

· PBEC is one of the only facilities in South Florida to accept stallions for sex-sorted semen collections. Stallion owners are now able to choose the future sex of the foal by utilizing frozen ICSI doses of semen.
