HOMING PIGEON

Instructions for the analyses

-         Identification and relation-ship of the DNA (€ 95,00)

ATTENTION :

For the expedition is necessary to receive the blood both of the parents and both of the subject to be tested.

This test allow to check the real relation-ship father + mother = son/s and it is effectuated thanks to the test of the identification of the DNA. – For each subject is necessary to fill a single form.

-         Deposit of the blood (€25,00)

OR

Feather :

VETKARD SYSTEM

Vet kard system is a system for the collection, preservation and extraction of the DNA from biological sample, for everybody that want make different analyses of genetic identification and tests of relation-ship for dogs and carrier pigeons.

Features of the Vet Kard

- Simple modality of drawing of blood: it is sufficient to practise a small injection on the alar vein of the carrier pigeon with the special sterile needle for syrinx and lean the circular area of the Vet Kard on the drop of blood.
