About this product

Bat genotyping is a method used for the reliable identification of bat species from collected guano (faecal) samples. This is ideal for situations where bats cannot be visually identified and it also avoids the need to disturb individuals by trapping or capturing them. The method involves the extraction of DNA from the sample, amplification of a specific mitochondrial DNA target and then comparing its sequence to a reference database. In this way it is possible to discriminate between the 17 UK bat species (as well as vagrant species).

These kits are from ADAS and include everything required to collect and post up to four samples, including full instructions and a pre-paid return envelope. Analysis is purchased separately: choose from Standard (up to 10 days) or Fast Track (up to 5 days). 

The kit options and pricings (excluding VAT) are as follows:

Bat eDNA Collection Kit Only - £15
Standard Analysis - £45
Fast Track Analysis - £60

Please note that this service is only available to UK customers due to shipping restrictions.

Each kit includes:
* 8 x Screw top Eppendorf tubes
* 4 x Sterile forceps
* 4 x Sterile gloves
* Sample record sheet
