Aquaculture Genetics specialist Xelect has launched new rapid response genetic services for genotyping, pedigree assignment, gene expression, ploidy and sex determination. CEO Ian Johnston commented: ‘Whether it’s impartially checking the ploidy of eggs, or conducting spot checks to avoid in-breeding in broodstock, people want to have certainty over the quality of their supplies and the long-term health of their stocks.’ The tests will be available globally.

Operations director Tom Ashton added: ‘Our teams use the latest technology and insights to offer fast turnaround, guaranteed technical excellence, total confidentiality and – of course – a low price.’
