Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU)
A quick DNA sampling method that is user-friendly, reliable, easy to transport and efficient to process.
The Allflex Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU) unit provides a quick and easy DNA sampling method that is user-friendly, reliable, easy to transport, and the most efficient way to process DNA samples in a lab.
These units take an ear punch which can replace tail hair, blood, semen or other sample types used for DNA, Pestivirus or other serology testing. TSU’s can be used on all livestock types.
It is commonly used to collect tissue samples from the ear of cattle, sheep, deer and pigs.
|Fast, high performance tissue sample collection||A single-squeeze motion collects a sample with minimum distress to the animal|
|Minimise retesting||Tissue samples contain a large quantity of high-quality DNA for genetic analysis, yielding excellent lab results|
|Can be paired to matching visual and management tags, creating an absolute sample-to-animal linkage||Dramatically reduces the chance of mistakes by removing the need for manual data entry and additional technology. Perfect for farmers looking to utilise benefits of DNA, proving parentage and genetic gains|
|Sample integrity||Sealed & positively identified with both a 2D barcode and ID panel|
|Ease of storage and transport||Can be stored in the fridge, no need to freeze|
|Clean & uncontaminated large samples||The genetic material is sealed in a specially designed preservative, 4 tests can be taken from one sample|
