Bird sex determination by molecular techniques (PCR, DNA) is a very valuable tool for the precise and early knowledge of the sex of birds. Molecular techniques are minimally invasive, which is why they have replaced more traumatic techniques. Since DNA does not change throughout the life of the bird, it can be used from the birth of the animal, by using the egg shell and without having to wait for the emergence of the feathers by means of blood or buccal swab.
In the molecular biology laboratory AndDNA we have fast, precise and specific techniques for sexing the different groups of birds (Neognathae and Palaeognathae. See the list of sexed species to date for more information), and the experience of our personnel allows to fine-tune and develop new techniques to solve any problem that may arise with a specific species (such as occurs in turaco, emus, Psittacula krameri, Forpus coelestis, Eudromia elegans, Ptilopachus petrosus, Anthropoides virgo, Nothoprocta perdicaria etc …).

Instructions for taking and sending samples.
Download the application form from the icon at the top of this page. (In case you send a large number of samples, download the request form for multiple samples in the corresponding icon).
Print as many copies of the first page of this document as necessary depending on the number of samples to send. You will find a copy of these instructions on the second page of the document.
You can photocopy an application that already contains your data to avoid repeating the operation of filling it in on several of them.
In the event that you send samples from several birds, ensure that they do not come into contact with each other.
