How can manufacturers of spectrophotometry equipment adapt their technologies to cater to the specific requirements of commercial hatcheries, considering factors such as cost-effectiveness, ease of use, and compatibility with the suggested spectral range (749 to 861 nm)?
In practical terms, what are the key considerations and protocols that veterinarians should recommend to poultry farmers when implementing in ovo sexing to ensure the health and well-being of the hatching chicks throughout the incubation process?
How can the in ovo sexing technique using visible-near-infrared (vis-NIR) point spectroscopy be seamlessly integrated into existing hatchery operations to optimize chick sexing efficiency and minimize manual culling?
