B380 Quality Genes Pigeons


This Package covers several important Quality Genes and can be based on samples from animals at any age. Information on individual tests is available at our website. This Package contains the following Quality Genes:
• Quality Gene LDHA Pigeons
• Quality Gene DRD4-1 Bst4CI Pigeons
• Quality Gene DRD4-2 MnlI Pigeons
• Racing performance marker CRY-1

VHLGenetics introduces a strategy for DNA tests for several genetic improvements. Recently, technical improvements have allowed for the combination of several genetic markers in one test.

The new technology also allows us to add markers on a custom basis. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Test specific information




Turnaround time

The Turnaround Time (TAT) depends on various factors, such as the shipment time of your sample to the test location, the test method(s) and whether the tests are performed completely or partially by a Partner Lab or Patent owner.

The TAT of tests performed at our facilities is normally 10 working days after receipt of the sample at the testing laboratory (VHL, VHP or Certagen). For tests performed by a Partner Laboratory (so-called "partner lab test") or patent owner, the TAT is at least 20 working days after receipt of your sample. Because the shipment time to our Partner Labs or patent owner may vary due to factors we cannot influence, the mentioned 20 working days are therefore an estimate.

Sometimes it is necessary to re-run your sample. We call this a retest. In that case, the TAT will of course be extended.
