Sex determination in poultry embryos for the egg-laying industry. Increasing production capacity, eliminating male culling
SOOS Technology: SOOS is developing a solution to the egg-production industry’s greatest challenge – male chick extermination. Every year, 7.5 billion male layers are exterminated since they cannot lay egg nor be used for meat production.
As result, the industry disposes 50% of its production capacity, and wastes energy, land and carry heavy extermination costs. Furthermore, this practice is a source for growing public and regulatory pressure – in Germany and France, male chick extermination is expected to be prohibited by 2022.
Our solution transforms these male layers into functional females that can lay eggs. Our technology is a SaaS-based incubation protocol that controls the incubation process, and transmits sound vibration to the incubated embryos in certain times, frequencies and volumes.
