The procedure for determining the sex of birds or detecting infectious diseases of birds is as follows:

1. Order collection/sampling cards or plastic feather bags and order form (you can also use your own bags or small paper envelopes). Analysis of samples taken on other than our collection cards will be charged according to the price list as a non-standard sample.
2. After receiving the sampling cards, bags, you will take a biological sample (blood, feathers – about 6 pieces of chest feathers)
3. Send samples by post to our address (Slovgen s.r.o., ILKOVIČOVA 8, 84104 Bratislava, Slovak Republic) together with the completed order form to determine gender or disease (preferably recommended so that the shipment is not lost). Or you can create an ONLINE order that you print and send along with the samples. If you don’t have the option to print, just write the order number on the paper. The procedure for creating an ONLINE order is described below.
4. If you have purchased a VOUCHER, it is necessary to write the voucher number on the order form (top right)
5. Enter your email address on the order form.
6. After receiving the samples, we send the invoice by email or post
7. After receiving the payment to our account and completing the analysis (standard time 10 working days, or 4 working days with extra fee), we send the results by email, post, or both, depending on how you mark on the order form (bottom right – the method of sending the results)


We reserve the right to refuse to perform the test if the material is incorrectly collected or damaged during transport.
