HORARI D’ESTIU 2017


El nostre horari d’atenció al client durant el mes d’agost serà de 8 a 15h. Del 14/08/17 i fins al 01/09/17, el nostre servei de patògens pot tenir un termini de lliurament superior a l’habitual, i en cas de seqüenciació, aquesta no es podrà efectuar fins a la primera setmana de setembre. No s’oferiran identificacions individuals, test de paternitat, sexatge o malalties hereditàries. No dubtin en contactar amb nosaltres per a qualsevol consulta.

SEXAT DE RAPINYAIRES


A partir del mes de juliol Vetgenomics oferirà el sexat, identificació individual i test de paternitat exclusivament en rapimyaires. Tan sols es sexaran altres especies en casos d’estudis o lots de mostres rebudes de cop (més de 50 mostres).

IDENTIFICACIÓ GENÈTICA I PATERNITAT EN FALCONS


A partir d’Agost de 2014 no s’oferiran proves d’identificació genètica i paternitat en les espècies (i els seus híbrids): - Falco tinnunculus, Falco rusticolus, Falco columbarius i Falco pelegrinoides

PATÒGENS: DISSENY DE PACKS A MIDA


Si ens sol · licita més d’un patogen per mostra, li facturarem el preu del primer patogen + 10 € addicionals per cada patogen de més.
Si el resultat és positiu el preu inclou la identificació a nivell d’espècie per seqüenciació de DNA.
