Directional Freezing of Giant Panda Semen at Edinburgh Zoo


Zookeepers at Edinburgh Zoo have decided to use semen frozen with IMT International’s Directional Freezing technology to artificially inseminate their female, Tian Tian, the only giant panda in the UK.  After determining that Tian Tian would not be conducive to mating during the only 36-hour period of oestrus she will have this year, the team of experts decided to inseminate the giant panda with semen from two males, both samples having been cryopreserved within the last two years in anticipation of such a failing in their natural mating.
