10 February 2020, at 9:10am

A new tool incorporating the latest advancements in genetic marker information for whiteleg (vannamei) shrimp has been launched this week.

Called the the AQUAarray HD, it has been developed by the Center for Aquaculture Technologies (CAT), a leader in the field of genetic improvement of aquatic species.

”CAT is proud to offer practical tools that accelerate genetic improvement in aquaculture. When we combine the flexibility of this array with the analytical expertise of the CAT Genetics team, we are able to provide our partners and clients with results that they can use to increase the accuracy of selective breeding,” said VP of business development, Debbie Plouffe.

“The price point of the AQUAarray HD [vannamei] allows any sized shrimp breeding company in the world to leverage the benefits of genomic selection for genetic improvement."

Developed in collaboration with Neogen and available now from The Center for Aquaculture Technologies, it is the first product to be released in the AQUAarray line and can be used for a variety of applications including parentage assignment, assessment of genetic diversity, traceability, genomic selection and more.
