Abstract

In the veterinary industry, due to the use of artificial insemination, a single infected boar can transfer a disease to a multitude of sows which can lead to a disease outbreak [1]. An example is the epidemic of classical swine fever (CSF) in the Netherlands in 1997-1998, where the semen of infected boars led to CSF outbreaks in farms all over the country and beyond [2]. To reduce the chance of such an event happening in the future, we present a pinched-flow fractionation device to remove viruses from semen while retaining a high percentage of spermatozoa.
