Abstract

A major qualifying project was established last year to create a time and cost effective assay by which to age avian species. It was found that this could be done by measuring and comparing collagen and pentosidine concentrations. This year, the assay was improved upon in regards to time, cost, and overall efficiency. The final assay consists of skin preparation, cell lysis, fluorometry, and collagen determination.
