TARGAN Introduces WingScan, An Automated Feather Sexing System

TARGAN Introduces WingScan, An Automated Feather Sexing System

RALEIGH, N.C., JAN. 29, 2024TARGAN, Inc. (TARGAN), the cutting-edge animal AgTech company dedicated to enhancing global food efficiency through targeted technologies and innovative solutions, is excited to introduce its latest technology, WingScanTM, to U.S. and international markets.

Officially launched in 2023, TARGAN’s WingScanTM Feather Sexing System addresses a distinct industry need to improve operational efficiencies, ensure animal well-being, increase performance, and optimize production.


WingScanTM at a glance:


  • High-speed imaging and machine learning accurately identifies chick sex, achieving up to 98% accuracy at a rate of 100,000 per hour per system. 

  • Modular design allows for integration into any hatchery, allowing integrator to save on labor cost and time, optimize feed by implementing a targeted feeding strategy, and increase plant performance by optimizing yield.

  • By generating/ensuring high-yield uniform products, WingScanTM enhances a processing plant’s ability to introduce new automated processes for more efficient operations.


“TARGAN is reshaping animal protein production through our innovative technologies,” stated Ramin Karimpour, CEO of TARGAN. “We are offering solutions to producers that increase efficiencies and reduce costs in their production, helping to increase their bottom line, and ultimately, creating a more sustainable food supply.”


TARGAN will also introduce its targeted Vaccine Delivery System in late 2024. The automated system provides targeted microdose vaccinations, protecting flocks from top infectious diseases and reducing reliance on anticoccidials medications. The improved efficacy of vaccine delivery through TARGAN’s system leads to earlier onset of immunity across the flock and increased performance, resulting in improved feed conversion rates and lower customer feed costs. 


Both TARGAN’s WingScanTM Feather Sexing System and Vaccine Delivery System work to improve operational efficiency, increase animal well-being, and optimize production results. 


TARGAN recently announced three additions to its team, Ali Matloub and Vincent Fevrier to its global sales team, and Colby Cummings to its U.S. team. All three bring a variety of experience and a deep knowledge of the animal AgTech industry to TARGAN.  


Founded in 2015, TARGAN celebrated the grand opening of its state-of-the-art facility dedicated to research, design, and manufacturing in Raleigh, N.C. in September 2023. With more than 130 engineers, scientists, and technology professionals under its roof, TARGAN is poised to revolutionize animal protein production across the globe.
