THE NETHERLANDS - Pas Reform will launch its new SmartTray at EuroTier.

SmartTrayTM - new design delivers enhanced comfort and uniform airflow for improved hatch quality in modern embryos.

Genetic selection for high post-natal growth has altered patterns of development and rates of biosynthesis in modern embryos. In ovo, this results in ever higher levels of metabolic heat production, which needs careful management in the setter to deliver optimum hatching results.


SmartTray from Pas Reform has been designed specifically to enhance the comfort of modern embryos during the critical phase of incubation, delivering uniform airflow around the eggs to manage increased metabolic temperature effectively.

  • Supports hatching eggs at two levels: suitable for large and small eggs, with specially shaped support points to fit all egg sizes
  • Open, spacious grid: prevents the development of ‘dead spots’ and allows free movement of air for the uniform distribution of heat and humidity
  • Stable, self-centring egg positioning: ideal for in-ovo vaccination, prevents eggs from sticking and breaking
  • Maximum protection for the egg prevents hairline cracks - also ideal for farm traying
  • Suitable for the highly automated hatchery: superior construction, material stiffness and high impact-resistance withstand temperature changes and weight load for the lifetime of the tray
  • Safe, secure stacking: Blind find bottom design means SmartTray easily finds its secure locking position for fast, stable stacking
  • HACCP compliant: completely smooth finish for easy, thorough cleaning to prevent the accumulation of dirt
  • Ergonomic design: lightweight, smooth finish for comfortable, easy handling.

Pas Reform's new SmartTray will be revealed for the first time in Hanover at Eurotier 2008 (November 11–14 2008). The company hopes you can join them in Hall 11, stand E59, during your visit.
