Sampling specifics

Sample guidelines

We currently accept the following sample types:

  • Tail/ear tissue (≤2mm)
  • Fin clip (whole fin)
  • Extracted/purified DNA (NOTE: Due to the potential variability of extracted samples we are unable to guarantee 2-day turnaround of results.)
  • Frozen organ tissue (ship frozen)

Samples should 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 do not accept blood or fixed/preserved samples.

NOTE: If submitting in plates, unless directed otherwise, samples 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.
