Barex

Welcome to Barex Biochemical Products


Barex Biochemical Products was founded in 2006 and is located in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands. Barex is engaged in research & development, production and sales of sperm cell preservation media and their biochemical ingredients that are used to preserve sperm cells of domestic animals such as horses, cows, swines, and rabbits.

Barex's first product was Porex, a mixture of proteins, that is being used as an essential ingredient for an innovative swine semen preservation medium, that was launched in 2006.  Since then, several other new products that prolong the storage capacity of semen preservation media and that increase fertility have been developed and introduced successfully. Our swine and rabbit semen preservation media are now sold by major companies that are regarded as world leaders in the area of animal reproduction. Our most recent innovative product is a group of polymers that, when added to the medium, increase fertility. This group of polymers, collectively named Matrix, is being applied succesfully since 2012.

Barex's current major research focus is the development of equine semen preservation media.
