This year our summer closure dates are 1-4 June, and 19-23 July 2021. During this time there will be no samples processed, but we will continue to receive samples and also send out orders placed on our website

Tests performed by our Partner Laboratory

There are some tests which we are not allowed to perform un the UK due to active patents. We are able to send these samples to a Partner Laboratory in the USA for testing. You should order these tests as usual with us, and post them back to us here in Cambridge. The tests performed by our Partner Lab are marked with an asterisk. They have an extended turnaround of approximately 3-4 weeks.

Samples which we send to partner labs are DNA extracted by us at our lab in Cambridge - this has the advantage that we confirm that your sample is adequate for testing before being sent abroad. It also means that the sample submitted is in the form of the stable extracted DNA.

All testing ordered with us including CEA and PRAprcd is recognised by the Kennel Club and ISDS, and all results which qualify for a KC DNA screening scheme will be forwarded to the Kennel Club.
