2017-04-24 Ukraine: Assessment of the Possibilities of Using the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Method in Poultry


Assessment of the Possibilities of Using the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Method in Poultry

Description of the project offered: 
GDV diagnostics (bioelectrography) is a computer registration and analysis of the luminescence induced by the objects, including biological, when stimulated by an electromagnetic field with amplification in gas discharge. The parameters of gas discharge image depend on the properties of the object and thus, by analyzing the nature of the induced emission targets, it is possible to judge the energy state of an object at a particular point. The method is based on Kirlian effect ("high frequency photography").
The term "Kirlian effect" means visual observation or registration on photographic material glow of a gas discharge, which occurs near the surface of the object by placing the latter in a high electric field strength. In describing the results of the study of biological objects is sometimes used the term "bioelectrography" or "Kirlian photography" - registration glow on photographic material or other media used to record an image.
At the moment, this is a relatively new and promising method for the diagnosis of human diseases in the early stages. Even minor disturbances in the body affect the GDV-grams, suggesting the initial stage of any disease in the body, where the GDV - grams broken.
The idea of the project is to assess the possibilities of using this method in the poultry industry, namely during the selection of eggs for incubation or during embryogenesis for the evaluation of embryo development. As you know, at the time the egg is laid avian embryo is presented by multilayered blastoderm, the one in the chick is from 60-80 thousand cells. In our opinion, evaluation of the hatching eggs by bioelectrography will provide information on the presence of the embryo in the egg, and perhaps even allow assessing its viability. This method is not invasive and egg integrity will be preserved.
There no experience of the application of the GDV technique in poultry. This is absolutely new direction. It should be noted that the presence of the shell can be a serious impediment to obtaining objective information by the method. However, in the case of positive results of the experiment, great opportunities will open for the development of science in this field, and for the practical application of the received information.

Description of the collaboration sought: 
The proposed project involves the use of the method of discharge visualization (GDV) for monitoring the quality of eggs before laying to incubation. This technique due to its simplicity, safety can be a reasonable compromise when choosing technical means of measuring the egg quality in small laboratories that do not have a highly qualified staff, but need to test large numbers of samples for comparative evaluation. An important advantage of GDV technique is the speed of research and experimental data processing. This project with supplement of experience and technical information of European researchers will improve the classical methods of evaluating product quality.
Application of GDV methods in technology of egg incubation will allow revealing the percentage of fertile and unfertilized eggs at an earlier stage that will improve the economic efficiency of the process.
The study aims to assess the possibility of using the GDV method for the egg diagnosis by fertility criteria at the early stages of embryo development
