Ordering a DNA Diagnostic Panel
Organize in Advance Which Horses You Would Like to Test
1. Have your horses' information ready to register, any pertinant owner and trainer info, a method of payment, and the ability to pull a good sample of hair (30-40 hairs from mane or tail WITH roots - more is better).
2. Be sure you have access to your email (so we can confirm you're not a robot) and a printer.
3. Have a clean envelope and postage ready to seal the form and horse hair/DNA sample inside.
4. Prepare by viewing this brief, "How to" video in advance: EQUINE DNA SAMPLING
Click on "Order"
From the Home page (or this link) you can click on Order a Test and you will be walked through the process, asked to enter your information and "add a horse", then click "order a test". Choose your test package, then your billing information will be reviewed and the item(s) added to your shopping cart in preparation for payment.
You may choose Paypal, Visa, MasterCard or American Express as you prefer via our Paypal payment button. If you have a referral or promotional code, be sure and enter it as well (horse shows or preclinical only at this time). Review the total charge before you confirm.
Once you've completed the process, you will find a prefilled Sample Submission Form in your horses' profile (under the Test History section) to be printed. It contains a specifically marked space to place and secure your horse's sample. Please send off your horse DNA samples as soon as possible for processing.
What to Expect
As we are a boutique business and our testing process (and your equine DNA sample) has multiple checks in place to ensure that the results provided are as accurate as possible. You can expect results for your DNA panel in 7-10 working days from the time we begin processing the sample in our laboratory. Samples begin processing on Monday of each week. Testing results will be provided via an email (PDF) and uploaded to your online account (if you choose to enroll).
Pricing: Our current pricing model includes two comprehensive packages: the DNA Minipanel which includes 50+ traits for $99 , or the DNA Minipanel PLUS (60+traits) specified on our "Services" page for $149 per individual horse. We do offer Couture Services for specialized breeding or interests (we can even drive or fly to your barn and guide you through the process and do all of the work for you). Please feel free to inquire about group discounts or special services, as we are happy to help!
