Scientific advancements in the mapping of livestock genomes along with continued development of affordable analytics has changed the sampling industry - making it easier and quicker for producers to use DNA for parentage verification, genetic selection and BVD diagnostics. Allflex has been working with the country's leading biotechnology companies, livestock genetic testing labs and leading livestock producers to develop a unique device for collecting tissue samples. The Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU) maintains Allflex's commitment to innovation, quality and performance.
Fast, high performance sample collection - samples can be collected in seconds with minimal animal restraint. Single-squeeze motion collects sample with minimum distress to animal.
Clean, uncontaminated sampling - genetic material is sealed in a specially designed preservative. Visual, DNA-sample identification for instant confirmation of on-farm sampling success.
Minimizes retesting - tissue samples contain a large quantity of high quality DNA for genetic analysis yielding excellent lab results. Applicator (sold separately) can be used on cattle, sheep, pigs, deer, alpacas, camels, fish and more. Ergonomic sampling applicator allows quick loading and sampling; most animals are not aware sample has been taken. Sharp cutter assembly's double acting system ensures sample is pushed in and sealed into sample tube. Easy loading, even with large fingers in cold environment.
Applicator (sold separately) and Tissue Units are needed to take a tissue sample. Lab testing and testing fees not included; send samples to lab of choice.
