Which other livestock animal are you interested in?
Eurofins as a strong and highly flexible partner for breeders especially in the case of parentage / identity testing can set-up any assay for any livestock animal where interest exists.
Hence, Eurofins is able to identify distinct microsatellite markers for genetic fingerprinting for every livestock animal, if a standard marker set recommended by ISAG exists or if it was previously mentioned in the scientific literature.
The DNA fingerprint is unique for every individual and remains individual for the whole life of the animal. The reliable identification of a specific species provides the possibility to broaden the perspective from single parentage testing towards origin and traceabilty testing of animal products as the DNA profile can be prepared from any different samples (blood, sperm, hair roots as well as meat and meat products).
