Cattle DNA profiling and parentage

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.

 

Hair Sampling Procedure

What you will need:
· Pliers
· Envelopes
· Sample submission form

Method:
It is important that hair is plucked and not cut as the DNA of interest is contained in the root of the hair follicle, not in the shaft itself.

  1. It is essential that hair submitted for DNA analysis are dry and clean. Moisture and components from urine and faeces will eventually result in DNA degradation and possible DNA analysis inhibition.
  2. Collect 10 – 20 hairs containing follicles from the animal to be tested (longer hair can be tied into a knot to facilitate fitting into the envelope).
  3. Ensure that each hair has a follicle attached.
  4. Place each animal’s hair in separate paper envelopes for storage of hair samples to allow hair follicles to dry completely in order to preserve the DNA. The use of plastic bags that cannot “breathe” is not recommended.
  5. Store in a cool, dry place.
  6. Complete the sample submission form and send with the samples to the address indicated on the form.

Collection areas:
Cattle – brush of the tail
