Thanks to our rural location we were fortuitously led to developing our first non-human testing service DNA sexing peregrine falcons and from there hatched chXout®!
Our skilled staff and state of the art laboratories are at the forefront of using DNA technology in ornithology, providing our bird DNA testing services to both businesses and the general public alike.
We are able to determine the sex for a range of species of birds (see our bird species list), with a very busy “bird season” each year. Alongside bird sexing, we carry out species identification and parentage testing. All of these services are available year round for your convenience.
Our research into the genomics field is bringing forth new assays and opportunities for bird DNA testing services. We are currently working on our parentage testing with hopes to expand this service.
With a passion for wildlife, conservation and biodiversity, we are keen to collaborate with conservation projects, ecologists and citizen scientists.
If you have any ideas regarding how we might be able to help you, please do get in touch.
We look forward to working with you!
