Collecting tissue samples has never been more efficient and cost effective. Scientific advancements in the mapping of livestock genomes along with continued development of affordable analytics has changed the sampling industry – making it easier and quicker for producers to use DNA for:

  • Parentage verification
  • Genetic selection
  • BVD diagnostics


Allflex has been working with the country’s leading biotechnology companies, livestock genetic testing labs and leading livestock producers to develop a unique device for collecting tissue samples. The result is Tissue Sampling Unit (TSU) by Allflex. The Sampling Unit (TSU) by Allflex maintains Allflex's commitment to innovation, quality and performance. TSU provides:

  • Fast, high performance sample collection … Samples can be collected in seconds with minimal animal restraint. A single-squeeze motion collects a sample with minimum distress to the animal.
  • Clean, uncontaminated sampling … The genetic material is sealed in a specially designed preservative. 
  • Visual, DNA-sample identification … Instant confirmation of on-farm sampling success. No more guessing whether enough genetic material has been gathered.
  • Minimize retesting … Tissue samples contain a large quantity of high quality DNA for genetic analysis yielding excellent lab results.
