Each dog is unique with its individual physical and behavioral traits resulting from various factors like genetics, training and environment. This breed identification test can provide an insight into the breed ancestry of your dog. The test identifies the genetic breed makeup of all the possible pedigree trees in the last three generations and predicts the adult weight of your dog. The potential breeds in the ancestry of your dog are determined by analyzing more than 1800 genetic markers. Testing procedures were designed to provide reliable and accurate results. This breed identification test is based upon a database of more than 350 validated breeds. If your dog contains other breeds, which are not actually available in the database, it may result in the identification of breeds, or a combination of breeds, related to the breeds in the ancestry of your dog.
Test specific information
The Turnaround Time (TAT) depends on various factors, such as the shipment time of your sample to the test location, the test method(s) and whether the tests are performed completely or partially by a Partner Lab or Patent owner.
The TAT of tests performed at our facilities is normally 10 working days after receipt of the sample at the testing laboratory (VHL, VHP or Certagen). For tests performed by a Partner Laboratory (so-called "partner lab test") or patent owner, the TAT is at least 20 working days after receipt of your sample. Because the shipment time to our Partner Labs or patent owner may vary due to factors we cannot influence, the mentioned 20 working days are therefore an estimate.
Sometimes it is necessary to re-run your sample. We call this a retest. In that case, the TAT will of course be extended.
