DNA sexing has quickly risen to become the method of choice for determining the sex of avian monomorphic species. With accuracy rates greater then 99.9%, it is no surprise that this method of sexing has become number one with bird owners and aviculturalists worldwide.
Over the years, HealthGene Laboratory has conducted literally thousands of DNA-based bird sexing tests for an array of clientele; ranging from individual bird owners and breeders to entire zoo populations.
You may be wondering what makes DNA based avian sexing so accurate. The answer can be found in the technology underling this approach. Advances in molecular diagnostics have brought a technique known as PCR to the forefront of DNA diagnostics. Using PCR, differences in the DNA of male and female birds can be amplified and detected in the laboratory.
