Our journey of long-lasting partnerships with the animal industry began in 2009 when respected dog breeders approached inqaba biotec™, a local genetics laboratory to provide efficient, accurate and cost-effective genetic services. Our genuine interest in animals and the needs of our clients has expanded our client base from a few responsible dog breeders to breeders of domestic, livestock and wildlife species, veterinary professionals, and wildlife conservation research institutes. Our reputation in the industry has also reached the conscious pet and animal owners, who perform genetic tests from concern for the health of their new family member.
Our collaboration with Clinomics, a proudly African veterinary research innovations company, has expanded our services as we now make use of additional extensive panels in combination with the service delivery capacity for which we are well-known.
ZooOmics™ has been dedicated to providing accurate genetic tests and exceptional client service for over a decade. Our quality assurance protocols, expert DNA analysts and compliance with international and regional regulatory bodies provides reliable animal genetics results with a quality stamp you can trust.
