1. 3D-X-ray micro computed tomography and optical coherence tomography as methods for the localization of the germinal disk in the newly laid unincubated chicken egg

    The routine culling of the male offspring of hybrid layer type chickens is met with increasing public disapproval for both ethical and legal reasons. Until now practice-oriented methods for reliable sex diagnosis prior to hatch could not be developed. Molecular genetical analysis of blastodermic cells can be used for sex determination in unincubated eggs; however, knowledge of the precise localization of the germinal disc is crucial for the extraction of a carefully directed cell biopsy. In principle, 3D-X-ray micro computed tomography (3D-CT) has been proven a suitable method to localize the germinal disk in the unincubated egg without damaging the ...
