DNA Fact Sheet

GENESEEK DNA TESTING

  • All DNA samples to be submitted to GeneSeek must be accompanied by a complete Genotyping Application form (see link), which clearly outlines which tests are required and which animals are being tested

  • Updated Genotyping Application forms can be found on the website under Genomics – Service Providers or contact the registry office on 06 323 4484

  • If there is no Genotyping application form or the hair is not correctly attached to the GeneSeek hair cards, PBBnz may apply a handling fee per sample

  • DNA tests will be charged to your account

  • DNA samples and requests must be sent to PBBnz registry, not the lab
