Cattle DNA profiling and parentage is based on 18 STR markers of which 12 are recommended by ISAG and the additional 6 markers as recommended by the FAO for routine identity and parentage analysis. This 18 marker STR panel affords Clinomics clients access to the most comprehensive commercial cattle marker panel in South Africa and the world. Our panels are also standardized, allowing free exchange between local and international laboratories.
Cost: R140 (excl. VAT) – includes DNA profiling and parentage when applicable.
