There is an unmet market need in the international animal breeding industry for an affordable and effective sperm sex sorting product.


Engender Technologies Limited is a New Zealand company that has developed a technology to separate X- and Y-bearing bull sperm cells. This technology is expected to be low cost and cause minimal discernible damage to the cells. Sex sorting is expected to sustainably accelerate genetic gain and improve cost efficiencies in large animal reproduction.




Engender aims to achieve this through the use of high-tech microfluidic and photonic chips that are expected to sort sperm by sex at a lower cost, with less negative impact on fertility and with increased sperm retention over existing technology.
