BIOTEC

Cutting-edge laboratory of animal genetics

Biotec is a biotechnology center on the Unicesumar Farm that develops in vitro productions of embryos and studies improvements in animal genetics that can be extended to the market. The laboratory contains the latest equipment, such as a CO2 incubator that is used in the cultivation and preservation of embryos and a fluorescent microscope that allows DNA separation. Such facilities and equipment place Biotec among the top cutting-edge laboratories in the country.

Founded in 2005, Biotec partnered with Bio-Lab Biotechnology in 2010, a Brasilia-based company that is the benchmark in the field of animal genetics, which works with cloning and stem cell therapies. This partnership allows Unicesumar to meet with producers from several states who look to improve their herds.

To work performed at Biotec ranges from the follicular aspiration of oocytes (egg retrieval) to the in vitro fertilization of embryos. It also provides verification (embryo cryopreservation by rapid freezing in nitrogen), the transference of embryos into recipient cows, pregnancy diagnosis, and fetal sexing.
