animal genetics

Animal Genetics is a branch of genetics that investigates the genetic basis for animal disease, parentage, heredity and phenotypic traits. Analysing traits on the DNA level is one of the most accurate methods to investigate traits that are inherited. Our state-of-the-art laboratory makes use of the Gold Standard in Sanger Sequencing and Fragment Analysis technologies, the Applied Biosystems 3500xL Genetic Analyzer (© Life Technologies Corporation).

ZooOmics™ does not compromise when it comes to upholding regulatory and international standards in the animal genetics industry. We comply with reputable international and national organisations, provide over 100 tests, with over 10 years of animal genetics experience. All of our services are internationally competitively priced to provide access to these technologies for responsible Animal breeding and healthcare.

Genetics is an evolving and innovating field and our expert team have maintained our place at the forefront by contributing to the industry and developing these cutting-edge techniques.

CANINE GENETICS

DNA profiling, parentage verification, health testing and colour testing in canines.There are hundreds of genetic mutations that influence the health of canines.

FELINE GENETICS

DNA profiling, parentage verification, health testing and colour testing in felines. These tests are developed on a demand basis.

CATTLE GENETICS

Cattle DNA profiling and parentage is based on ISAG and FAO recommended 19 STR markers for routine identity and parentage analysis.

WILDLIFE GENETICS

Wildlife DNA profiling is offered for several species using an extensive highly informative STR marker panel for routine DNA profiling and parentage.

EQUINE GENETICS

ZooOmics™ offers equine DNA profiling and parentage based on 18 ISAG recommended STR markers for routine identity and parentage analysis.
