Typi-fix Ear Tag

Ear tags are $3.25 each and the ear tag applicator is $31 plus shipping and handling.

(View the Instruction Manual)

To take a tissue sample for DNA testing and to leave an ear tag in your sheep, simply apply the ear tag as you would any ear tag. Remove the small container that is attached. The collection cup will contain a small amount of tissue that is automatically sealed in the container.

There is space on the ear tag and on the sample submission container to write your flock number. Gene Check can then report your results to you using your flock number rather than the Gene Check assigned sample number.

These tags can be used as permanent ear tags. Samples in the containers can be stored for at least one year at room temperature. Therefore, the tags can be used as lamb tags and samples sent for testing only after you decide which animals you intend to keep or sell for breeding.

Because the small portion of the ear tag and the reverse side of the sampling container are permanently labeled with Gene Check numbers, all samples can be quickly and accurately traced back to the animal.

Gene Check Ear Tags and applicators are available for immediate shipment.

FTA Blood Card

FTA blood cards are $4.00 each plus shipping and handling.

For blood collection, we recommend using a new razor if nicking the ear or draw blood into an unused syringe. Make 8 to 10 droplets of blood inside the circle outlined on the card. Please do not over-saturate the blood card, and allow each card to sit open and dry before packaging for shipment.

FTA blood cards can be stored at room temperature for several years. Therefore, rushed shipping is not necessary.
