Parentage with Certificate in Dogs
All Dog Breeds .

The purpose of the parentage testing is to clarify whether supposed parents of a given animal are the true biological parents. In principle, an offspring gets 50% of its heritable information from the mother, and 50% from the father. Provided that the maternity is confirmed, all non-maternal markers in the DNA profile of the offspring should have been inherited by the father. If at least one marker in the DNA profile does not match, the paternity can be excluded. The more high-variable markers are examined, the more precisely parentage can be clarified. By the investigation of at least 10 markers, an exceptionally exact test is generated.

Cost (Including VAT) :

£ 72.00 each pup, and

£ 48.00 for the dam and each questionable sire

Sample Requirements
The test is performed out of EDTA whole blood (0.5 ml). For parentage testing, a blood sample of the animal as well as a blood sample of the supposed father and mother have to be sent. If a paternity is to be excluded, additionally blood samples of all the potential fathers should be sent, if possible.
