Nectra Ultrascan can be used across species for candling
from the fifth day of incubation. A multispectral ray is used to
read the metabolic development of eggs while ignoring interference from noise, light or electromagnetic fields.
Manufacturer Nectra says the product offers improvements in incubation that can be achieved by identifying the
poorest positions in an incubator or egg tray. The energysaving Nectra Ultrascan raises health quality in incubators
by allowing the early removal of dead eggs. It is non-invasive, does not rely on lasers and can identify eggs that may
have been placed upside down.
