Canine DNA profiles (ISAG 2006)-breed cannot be determined with this test
What is it?
The DNA profile of each dog is unique (except for identical Twins).
We analyse 22 different DNA markers, known as microsatellites. These markers contain short repeating sequences of DNA known as STR’s. The number of repeats for each marker varies from individual to individual. It is this variation in the markers that makes up an animals unique DNA profile.
The set of markers we use also contains markers to confirm the gender of the animal tested. The results of this appear on your certificate as X\X ( Female) or X\Y(Male).
This test does not give any information on the breed of your dog. For this information you need to order a wisdom panel dog breed analysis test.
