The Combination Pack Hair Length covers several important traits and can be based on samples from animals at any age. Information on individual tests is available at our website. This Combination Package contains the following markers:
• K461 Hair Length Maine Coon
• K462 Hair Length Norwegian Forest
• K463 Hair Length Ragdoll
• K466 Hair Length all breeds
A small possibility exists that one or two tests which are part of a combination package will not provide results. Because of the low pricing of the combination packages, we cannot retest a single marker if this marker fails in a combination package.
If a particular test is highly important to you, we recommend that you order such a marker as a single test in our webshop. If needed, repeated testing is routinely performed on all single tests without extra costs.
Please refer to our FAQ-section for a further explanation.
Test specific information
Dr. van Haeringen Laboratorium B.V. (VHL), introduces a different strategy for DNA tests for several genetic markers. Recently, technical improvements have allowed for the combination of several genetic markers in one test.
Since 2015, two brands have been developed. CombiGen® is mainly directed at veterinarian applications, whereas CombiBreed® is mainly directed at breeders and/or owners.
Detailed information about Coat Colours and Coat Variation is presented at www.combibreed.com.
Most coat colours and coat types are usually visible directly after birth.
Normally the result can be expected within 20 working days. This turn-around-time starts when both the sample and the fully filled-out and signed submission form have been received.
Location of disease or trait
The hairlength can be assessed on the outside of an individual.
For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.
For this DNA test we accept the following materials: Blood EDTA, Blood Heparin, Swab, Tissue, Semen. Please contact Dr. Van Haeringen Laboratorium if you wish to submit other material as listed.
Not in use
Various genetic factors influencing coat colour and coat types are inherited in a dominant or recessive mode. Coat colours are influenced by a large number of genetic factors.
Severity of Disease
Hairlength is no disease.
