How do you decide which tests to offer?

Developing DNA tests that are accurate and reliable can be a challenging process as any reliable test should be validated using samples from dogs with known genotypes for target variant, and these can be difficult to acquire.

During the first weeks and months of service we are prioritising the development of disease tests that were previously offered by the Genetic Services team at the Animal Health Trust, before it closed down in July 2020. After that we will start to develop DNA tests for non-disease traits and profiling/parentage verification.

We won’t develop tests that you, our valued customer, does not want. So please do Get in Touch if you would like us to consider developing a particular test.
