Sampling specifics

Any samples already frozen should be packaged to prevent thawing during transit

We ask that samples be collected and shipped at room temperature.  Frozen samples which are allowed to thaw will experience significant degradation. Any samples already frozen should be packaged to prevent thawing during transit.  We no longer accept samples preserved in alcohol.

NOTE: If submitting samples in plates, unless directed otherwise, sample plates will be run in the A1 – H12 orientation and results reported by well. For incomplete plates, please indicate which well(s) are empty to further ensure proper orientation.

We currently accept the following sample types:

  • Tail tissue (2mm)
  • Ear notch
  • Fin clip
  • Extracted/purified DNA (NOTE: Due to the potential variability of extracted samples we are unable to guarantee 2-day turnaround of results. For the fastest results, simply submit tissues for us to extract using our proprietary methods.)
  • Equivalent volumes of other tissues can be accepted if shipped frozen.

For more information, please review our guide to Sampling Best Practices for Genetic Testing.
