TypiFix DNA Ear Tags and Sample Only Collectors

 

 

Gene Check is pleased and excited to announce a new system of sample collection for DNA testing. Gene Check Sample Collectors (no tag) and Sample Collection Tags will greatly simplify and improve the way you collect samples for any and all DNA testing.

The benefits of Gene Check Sample Collectors and Sample Collection Tags include:

  • Samples for DNA testing are automatically collected when you apply the tag.
  • The need for blood collection is completely eliminated.
  • The need for blood tubes, syringes or blood cards is eliminated.
  • Gene Check tags do not require refrigeration or expensive overnight shipping. The sample collection cups can be stored as long as you wish and sent to Gene Check by inexpensive regular mail.
  • Sample labeling errors are virtually eliminated. Tags allow samples to be traced back to individual animals after testing.
  • Your own flock number can be written on the tag and submission container.


Ear Tag Collection

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

(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 eartag. Remove the small container that is attached, it 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, easily and accurately traced back to the animal.

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

Call or e-mail Gene Check today at (800) 822-6740 with questions or to place your order.


Sample Only Collection

Sample only collectors are $2.75 and the sample only applicator is $31.

(View the Instruction Manual)

To take a tissue sample for DNA testing without tagging your sheep, use the sample only collection system. Simply place the collection cup in the applicator and the conical punch on the applicator pin and take a sample as if you were applying an ear tag. A small amount of tissue will be collected and sealed in the collection cup.

Use the space on the tab attached to the collection cup to write your flock number. Gene Check will report your results to you using your flock number.

Gene Check Sample Only Collectors and applicators are available for immediate shipment.
