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.
Turn Around Time
The turn-around-time of a test depends to a large extent on the logistics of sample transportation to the laboratory. After receiving the sample at the test location, you can normally expect the result within 10 working days. A longer delivery time applies to tests carried out by a Partner Lab.
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.
