Protein supplementation

PureSperm® Wash contains the component human serum albumin (hSA). The hSA is manufactured from human blood donated in the United States. The blood donors are tested for various viruses before being allowed to donate blood for this purpose. Each plasma donation is individually tested for ALT, HBs antigen, HIV-1/2 antibody and HCV antibody by ELISA. Only those plasma donations found non-reactive for these antibodies have been used for the manufacture of the hSA component. The plasma pool is tested again before manufacture of the hSA product. The hSA product is heated at 60ºC for 10 hours as a final precaution. The final PureSperm® Wash product is filter sterilised.
