Why buy custom TSU with tags instead of boxed TSU?
Easy organization for collecting and submitting samples
Customized matched pair tissue sample sets provide easy organization at the time of use arriving matched for each animal. The Tissue sample and corresponding visual tag and/or EID come paired on a tray together.
Match with a USDA 840 or commercial EID Tag
TSUs can also be matched with USDA 840 series EID tags - great for registered stock and show animals.
Choose your own numbering system
Choose your own numbering system for your Tissue Samples - send us a spreadsheet of your custom numbers, no confusion on who's sample is who's when getting ready to submit for testing.
Receive a spreadsheet of your barcodes
