This product is for generating a DNA profile only, we have a separate product for Profiling and Parentage Testing.
A DNA Profile (or DNA fingerprint) is unique for your animal and is used to verify the identity of the animal and to determine parentage. We use the ISAG (International Society for Animal Genetics) 2006 microsatellite/short tandem repeat (STR) marker panel with the latest updates recommended by ISAG:
- 21 core markers – these have been in use for many years.
- 12 additional markers – the addition of these markers can clear up parentage questions in cases where the individual dogs being tested are very closely related and cannot be separated using the core markers alone.
This test does not determine breed makeup.
