CLARITY Non-Spermicidal A.I. Lubricating Jelly Now Available from Aurora
CLARITY Non-Spermicidal A.I. Lubricating Jelly is a preserved, isotonic, pH buffered, non-spermicidal, water-soluble lubricating jelly for catheter lubrication and all types of non-sterile medical procedures. CLARITY is provided in a convenient multi-use squeeze container. Antimicrobial effectiveness testing has shown it will continue to be safe to use even if the product is exposed to contamination from the environment. The viscosity was selected on the ability to cover the catheter tip for easy catheterization.
CLARITY was shown to support boar sperm cell functionality in a recent study conducted by an outside laboratory. There was no difference in motility (computer assisted semen analysis) and membrane viability (flow cytometric analysis) between Control samples and extended boar semen exposed to CLARITY at 1%, 2.5% and 5% in BTS short term extender. As part of the same controlled study, extended boar semen was also exposed to First Priority® Sterile Lubricating Jelly at the same concentrations. In this treatment, semen motility dropped off immediately and continued to decline over time and membrane viability decreased and became worse at the higher concentrations. Based on both the sperm motility and membrane viability results obtained in this study, First Priority, Sterile Lubricating Jelly expresses spermatotoxic effects, while CLARITY lubricant does not. The study is being repeated using long term extenders with and without BSA (bovine serum albumin).
CLARITY A.I. Lubricating Jelly’s suggested retail price is $6.50 for a 12oz bottle.
