The service is provided for determining the sex of bovine embryos.
Whole embryo sexing is an effective QC step for large scale
production of sexed embryos using sorted sperm.
Biopsy embryo sexing is used to determine the sex of the biopsied

Disclaimer: It is
possible that not all embryos/biopsies will generate definite
results (i.e. determined sex). According to Almodin et. al. (A
bovine protocol for training professionals in preimplantation
genetic diagnosis using polymerase chain reaction, Fertility and
Sterility, 84 (4), 895-899), up to 18% of the whole embryo PCR
and 38% of the biopsy PCR did not amplify. Although RLI scientists
maintain an amplification rate over 95% of all embryos and biopsies
assayed, we cannot guarantee the PCR amplification for all samples.
