The GGP HD Porcine chip from Geneseek comprises approximately 70,000 SNPs, which are evenly spaced over the genome with a median gap of 25kb. The chip includes all markers used in routine parentage verification, along with several genetic traits to determine animal growth, meat quality and genetic resistance to diseases. For several tests additional royalties will be charged. Please contact us for a complete list of genomic traits and royalty rates.
Test specific information
Regarding BeadChips for Illumina genotyping, several options exist. Through our collaboration with Geneseek, we are able to offer a wide range of BeadChips including custom products and the regular range of Illumina chips. In addition, we can offer a custom set, dedicated to your needs.
The majority of Illumina BeadChips is based on a 24-sample format. For this test it’s required to submit series of 24 samples.
Depending on the customer pricing, a rerun may or may not be included automatically. This is furthermore depending on sample type, quality and quantity of the sample or DNA submitted. For your information, we are able to run BeadChips using almost any sample type.
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.
Location of disease or trait
For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.
For this DNA test we accept the following materials: Blood EDTA, Blood Heparin, Hair, Tissue, Swab. Please contact Dr. Van Haeringen Laboratorium if you wish to submit other material as listed.
