- The speed of assembly and disassembly of the syringe;
- Ease of disinfection (it does not contain plastic or thermally unstable materials;
- Smooth pressure change and, accordingly, easy sperm collection;
- Comfortable shape for your hand, with height adjustment;
- Rapid replacement of capillaries.
The syringe tripod is made of stainless steel.
The lock nut, the main cylinder and the wheel are made of corrosion-resistant aluminum.
The piston is made of stainless steel.
The knurled screw that fixes the syringe to the tripod is also made of stainless steel.
The glass syringe is fixed with the help of a lock nut and two rubber pads to avoid damage.
Attention! The lock nut should not be fixed too tightly. Do not apply force. The syringe should be gently fixed with rubber pads.
