To determine the optimal conditions to maintain sperm motility and viability for prolonged periods, semen specimens were processed and cultured in different temperature and conditions. We conclude that processing of semen and incubation of sperm in protein-supplemented N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N′- 2-ethanesulfonic acid (HEPES) human tubal fluid medium at room temperature best preserved viability and motility of sperm.
