Using parentage analysis, the parentage of a young animal may be determined if information on the suspected parents is available. To perform a parentage analysis, DNA samples of both parents and the offspring are required. It is not possible, however, to determine whether two animals are related when there is no information about the (suspected) parents.
Parentage analysis may be performed using hair- or bloodsamples. To perform parentage analysis, approximately 10 plucked hairs are required. You will receive a analysis report with the results of the parentage analysis.
