I am a researcher within the University of Glasgow and I am currently compiling a case study on one of our staff members, Dr Richard Griffiths.
Dr. Griffiths developed a PCR technique for determining the sex of birds which I see is a service your company currently offers. We are trying to trace companies which have directly used Richard’s research which is exactly as described on your website.
I would be very grateful if you could get back to me to let me know if this is the specific test which your company uses please, or who you license it from. We would also be most appreciative of any information which you may have on any major clients of yours who have bought the kit from you such as zoo’s or breeders etc.
The case study will form part of the University’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF), which contributes to the University’s world ranking. If Dr. Griffiths work has had wide-reaching effects then this will help in the overall ranking.
Many thanks for any help you can offer with this request and I look forward to hearing back from you in the near future.
We are simply re-sellers of the test and we’ve only sold it to a handful of individual pet owners
