Allflex Tissue Sampling Units for DNA Testing
AllFlex has a method for collecting DNA Samples that ASA has recently embraced. This new form of sampling is being offered as another way to collect DNA and submit for all the tests we offer through ASA. The Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU) kit offers another way for producers to properly and successfully collect and submit DNA samples, even on newborn calves. To order your TSU kit please contact the DNA Department and we can mail you a kit. The start up costs are $35 for the TSU applicator and $2 per TSU ordered (increments of 10). The TSUs come in a box of 10 ($20) and Allflex recommends that you store them at room temperature prior to use (for a maximum period of 12 months). Member will also be responsible for shipping charges via UPS for the applicator and TSUs.
For more information on ordering these kits please contact the DNA department by phone 406-587-4531 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
Box of TSU $20 (includes 10 TSU)
Mailing TSU Samples to GeneSeek
When you have successfully collected your sample, please contact the DNA department at email@example.com and provide the following information: Account Number, Animal ID/Registration Number, TSU Bar code(displayed on the side of the TSU), and the tests you would like to have done. We will then process your DNA request and email you paperwork with instructions to send to the lab. The new DNA paperwork will have 2D barcode(s) and all you have to do is print and mail with the sample(s) to the lab. We recommend mailing your samples UPS ground since the samples may pop open if flown due to the pressure.
